Commissioner Roger Goodell said there will be no settlement talks between the league and suspended QB Tom Brady.
Goodell said the courts will decide Brady's fate. The Second U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals reinstated Brady's four-game ban in April, but Brady has asked the same court to rehear the case, claiming the two judges who sided against him "got the law wrong." This saga refuses to end. Jun 6 - 9:46 AM

Tom Brady's appeal in the Second U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals argues that two judges who sided with the NFL to have Brady's suspension reinstated "got the law wrong."

Brady's team is asking the three judges who heard his initial case (two voted nay, one yay) to "rehear their arguments." "The panel decision stands in stark contrast with fundamental rules of labor law and undermines the rights of union members and employers alike," Brady attorney Theodore Olson wrote. "This court should grant rehearing or rehearing en banc." According to the Boston Herald, Brady has "told friends since January 2015 that he'll go to his grave believing he did nothing wrong" in the so-called Deflategate. On a personal note, we CAN'T WAIT for this whole thing to go away.

Tom Brady will file an appeal Monday for a second hearing by the Second U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to overturn his four-game Deflategate suspension.

A surprise to nobody. Brady had until Monday to file this appeal after the U.S. Appeals Court ruled in favor of the NFL on April 25 that Brady's four-game ban be reinstated. This ordeal has been going on for nearly 500 days now, and an end doesn't appear to be in sight. "The facts here are so drastic and so apparent that the court should rehear it," said Brady's lawyer, Theodore Olson.

Tom Brady has until May 23 to appeal the latest ruling in the Deflategate case.

Neat. Brady has numerous options, including appealing all the way to the Supreme Court (seriously). That's extremely unlikely, but Brady has made it clear he will keep fighting to have his four-game ban thrown out for the second consecutive year. What should have been a 24-hour story is going on a 17-month saga.
May 3 - 4:52 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Tom Brady is "far from ready" to accept the U.S. Appeals court's reinstatement of Brady's four-game suspension.

Per Schefter, Brady is "mulling options" with a "legal team," and "this is not yet over." Deflategate II appears destined to happen over the coming months, with ball-deflation arguments throughout the summer for the second straight year. It's really just what Boston sports radio needed.
Apr 25 - 4:33 PM

The U.S. Appeals court has reinstated Tom Brady's four-game suspension as a result of Deflategate in the 2014 playoffs.

The Patriots were reportedly bracing for this to happen after the NFL's appeal was heard last month. Brady will miss the Patriots' first four games against the Cardinals, Dolphins, Texans, and Bills before being able to return Week 5 against the Browns. He's still able to participate in training camp and preseason contests. Jimmy Garoppolo will slide in as the starter the first four weeks.

Ben Volin of the Boston Globe suggests the Patriots are "bracing" for Tom Brady to lose his Deflategate appeal and serve a four-game suspension.

The Patriots reduced Brady's base salary to $1 million last week while posting an 8,000-word story on their website titled "The Background and Myths of Deflategateā€”Separating Fact From Fiction." Both moves reek of desperation. The NFL's appeal was heard in court earlier this month in front of a three-judge panel. Jimmy Garoppolo would fill in at quarterback if Brady loses his appeal.
Mar 13 - 10:44 AM

Patriots signed Tom Brady to a two-year, $30 million extension through 2019.

He'll receive a $28 million signing bonus. Brady was scheduled to be an unrestricted free agent in 2018. The deal locks Brady up through his age-42 season and will likely lower his scheduled $15 million cap hit. Despite injuries to almost every top playmaker, Brady showed no signs of slowing down last season, throwing for 4,770 yards and posting a 36-to-7 touchdown-to-interception ratio. With Julian Edelman and Dion Lewis set for healthy returns, Brady has a good shot to match those numbers in 2016.

Tom Brady completed 27-of-56 passes for 310 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions in New England's 20-18, AFC Championship Game loss to the Broncos.

Under siege from the opening whistle, Brady was in a fight for survival as he attempted to advance to his seventh Super Bowl. According to's Marc Sessler, Brady took an unfathomable 20 hits, the most by any quarterback in the 2015-16 season. It was a wrenching end to one of the best seasons of Brady's all-time great career. Brady is seven months shy of 39, but in truly remarkable shape. He'll be back for 2016, and there's little reason to believe he won't remain one of the league's five-best players. New England's top offseason priority will be improving Brady's offensive line.

Tom Brady (ankle) is listed as probable for Sunday's AFC Championship game against the Broncos.

He hasn't missed a game since 2008. That streak will continue Sunday when Brady meets Peyton Manning for the 17th time. He's coming off a terrific outing against Kansas City in the Divisional Round (28-for-42, 302 yards, two passing touchdowns, one rushing touchdown).
Jan 22 - 2:45 PM

Tom Brady averaged under two seconds from snap-to-throw in the Patriots' Divisional Round win over the Chiefs.

Despite a stellar Chiefs pass rush, Brady was not sacked for the first time since Week 9. With Julian Edelman (10-of-16 targets for 100 yards) back in the lineup, Brady was able to masterfully conduct a short passing attack. The Patriots will likely attempt to execute a similar game plan in the AFC Championship Game against the Broncos.

Tom Brady completed 28-of-42 passes for 302 yards and two touchdowns in the Patriots' 27-20, Divisional Round win over the Chiefs.

With the Chiefs generating zero heat, Brady was surgical. With Julian Edelman (foot) finally back, Brady targeted his slot man a whopping 16 times. Brady was unstoppable today, but will face a much stiffer test if the Pats are forced to travel to Denver for the AFC Championship Game. The Pats will host the Steelers if Pittsburgh can beat Denver on Sunday.
Jan 16 - 7:55 PM

Tom Brady (ankle) is listed as probable for Saturday's Divisional Round game against the Chiefs.

Brady is dealing with a high-ankle sprain but he didn't miss any practice time this week. Now the question turns to whether Brady will have his full complement of receivers on Saturday. Julian Edelman (foot) and Danny Amendola (knee) are both expected to play but Rob Gronkowski's status is much less certain.
Jan 15 - 4:33 PM

Tom Brady (ankle) is practicing in full for the Divisional Round.

Brady suffered a high-ankle sprain in Week 17, but it was never expected to keep him out. He's all systems go for Saturday's game.
Jan 13 - 6:04 PM

NFL Network's Albert Breer reports Tom Brady has a high ankle sprain.

ESPN's Adam Schefter previously reported Brady had an ankle sprain and bruised ribs. The "high" part of the sprain is new. It sounds like a relatively non-severe sprain that Brady should be able to play through with a week of rest brought on by New England's first-round playoff bye. Either way, it's an injury that we'll be tracking closely for the next two weeks.
