ESPN's Mike Reiss still expects Tom Brady to receive most of the first-team reps at Patriots training camp.
Brady is suspended for the first four games of 2016 but he still needs his reps. The focus will shift to Jimmy Garoppolo as Week 1 approaches but the early part of camp should look pretty similar to past years with Brady running the first-team offense. Brady can practice and compete in preseason games up until September 3. After that, he won't be allowed at the team facility for four weeks. Jul 17 - 12:28 PM

While Tom Brady has accepted his four-game suspension, the NFL Players Association is still considering taking the case to the Supreme Court.

"We will continue to review all of our options and we reserve our rights to petition for cert to the Supreme Court," said the NFLPA in a statement released on Friday. 544 days of Deflategate were enough for Brady but the NFLPA isn't ready to throw in the towel just yet. Brady will still serve his suspension but if the NFLPA takes the case to the Supreme Court and wins (an extreme long shot), the NFL would return Brady's four game checks, which amount to $253,000. By taking the ban, Brady decided he'd rather miss the Patriots' first four games than serve his suspension later in the year. We think he made the right call.

Tom Brady announced he will "no longer proceed in the legal process" of appealing his four-game suspension.

It's finally over. Deflategate dragged on for about two years, with both Brady and the NFL going back and forth in court, but at least Brady is putting an end to this thing by accepting his punishment. He has vowed to never admit to any wrongdoing. Jimmy Garoppolo will start the first four games before Brady is eligible to return against the Browns. Knock Brady down a few pegs in fantasy, but he remains a top-ten quarterback in drafts and will be a top-five option once he returns in Week 5.

The Second U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has denied Tom Brady's request for a rehearing in his Deflategate case.

Brady's next course of action is to appeal to the Supreme Court. It's looking more and more likely that Brady will have to serve his four-game ban to open the season. Jimmy Garoppolo is penciled in as the Weeks 1-4 starter.
Jul 13 - 9:46 AM

A decision from the Second U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Tom Brady's Deflategate suspension could be coming in the next week.

Legal experts predicted it would take the court between 3-6 weeks to make a ruling and Monday will mark five weeks from when the appeal was filed. Brady asked for an en banc hearing after the court upheld his suspension by a 2-1 vote on April 25. It's been 17 months since this ordeal began and we're still no closer to reaching the finish line.
Jun 26 - 8:26 AM

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.
May 23 - 5:48 PM

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.
May 23 - 9:15 AM

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.
Apr 25 - 11:39 AM

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 Deflategate—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.
Jan 24 - 6:47 PM

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).
