Tom Brady completed 7-of-13 passes for 84 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions in the Patriots' third preseason game.
Starting the game and playing 27 snaps, Brady got sacked to end New England's first possession and gained nine years apiece on a pair of scrambles, taking another blow at the end of the second. The first of Brady's interceptions was really a lost fumble by Aaron Dobson, which Peanut Tillman wrestled away. Brady rallied back to hit Scott Chandler for an 18-yard touchdown on a fade pass. He was replaced by Jimmy Garoppolo on the Patriots' first second-half drive. Aug 28 - 9:33 PM

Attorneys for the NFL and NFLPA are scheduled to meet with U.S. District Judge Richard Berman on August 31.

Tom Brady and Roger Goodell will also be at the meeting. This will likely be the last time the parties meet with Judge Berman before he renders a decision on Brady's suspension. Both sides want a decision by September 4, one day before the suspension is scheduled to begin.

Tom Brady completed 2-of-5 passes for 13 yards in Saturday's preseason game against the Saints.

Curiously, Brady has now started both of New England's exhibition games over Jimmy Garoppolo. If we're reaching, it could be a sign the Pats believe his suspension will be thrown out or put on hold before Week 1.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Tom Brady is open to "accepting some form of suspension" only if it can be for "failing to cooperate with the NFL."

The NFL, however, wants Brady to admit to Ted Wells' findings, and that's something Brady will never do. It's part of the reason this thing continues to drag on and is now in court with no clear outcome. Schefter said last week that today would be a "key day" in the Deflategate saga with a ruling coming by September 4 at the latest.

ESPN's Adam Schefter confirms Tom Brady and Roger Goodell were present for settlement talks with federal judge James Francis on Tuesday, but that the session went "nowhere."

The sides appear ready to fight things out to the bitter end, a prospect that could delight Brady and the NFLPA as the tide appears to slowly turn in their favor. Brady is skipping Wednesday's court proceedings, opting for New England's joint practice with the Saints.

Updating an earlier item, Tom Brady won't attend Wednesday's hearing in his legal battle with the NFL.

That's because settlement talks are "going nowhere," making it unnecessary for Brady to attend. He'll now take part in Wednesday's joint practice with the Saints.
Aug 18 - 3:07 PM

USA Today's Tom Pelissero reports Tom Brady plans to attend Wednesday's federal court hearing regarding his suspension.

Brady and Roger Goodell are not required to attend the second of two conferences, but Brady could earn some points with the judge by showing up. It is unclear if Goodell plans to attend, but news Brady will be there could convince the commissioner to show up. Brady did not practice with the Patriots on Tuesday and will miss the team's first joint practice with the Saints on Wednesday.

The Patriots have yet to decide if Tom Brady will play in the team's preseason opener Thursday night.

Reports on Wednesday said Brady would sit out, but the Patriots have reportedly had a change of heart. In a Facebook post, Brady wrote, "Helmet is on... I’ll see you tonight Gillette Stadium!!!" Even if he suits up, Brady is unlikely to play more than one series. Jimmy Garoppolo should see the lion's share of the work tonight.

Per a Thursday court order, Tom Brady will not have to attend next week's conference between the two sides.

The NFL and Brady's team will meet in federal court Wednesday as they continue court-imposed settlement talks. Brady will instead be in West Virginia to practice with his teammates. Expect him to make his preseason debut against the Saints on Aug. 22.
Aug 13 - 12:40 PM

Tom Brady isn't expected to play in Thursday night's preseason opener against the Packers.

Coach Bill Belichick has a longstanding tradition of you have to practice to play, and Brady is out of town Wednesday dealing with #Deflategate nonsense. If Brady indeed doesn't play, it could mean Jimmy Garoppolo will start and play pretty much the entire game. Ryan Lindley is the only other quarterback on the roster, but he was just signed on Monday and likely doesn't know the plays.
Aug 12 - 11:49 AM

The NFL won't reach a settlement with Tom Brady unless he accepts the findings in Ted Wells' report.

The two sides will meet in federal court on Wednesday. The NFL wants Brady to admit guilt but that's not going to happen. Throughout his appeals process, Brady has remained firm that he'd accept a fine but no suspension. Eight months in, Deflategate is still a long way from being over.
Aug 12 - 9:58 AM

U.S. District Judge Richard M. Berman ordered Tom Brady and Roger Goodell to appear in court for two conferences on Aug. 12 and 19.

Berman requested the two sides "engage in comprehensive, good-faith settlement discussions prior to the conference on August 12." Though the judge did not mention the NFL's and NFLPA's joint request to have the case resolved by Sept. 4, the immediacy of the conferences suggests a resolution could be handed down quickly. Hopefully this ridiculous episode will come to an end before the season begins.

A Minnesota judge has transferred the NFLPA's Tom Brady lawsuit back to New York.

The NFLPA filed the suit in Minnesota in an effort to get Judge David Doty, who has historically sided with the Player's Association. U.S. District Judge Richard Kyle saw through that, kicking the case back to Manhattan where the NFL preemptively filed. "The Court sees little reason for this action to have been commenced in Minnesota at all," Kyle wrote. "Brady plays for a team in Massachusetts; the Union is headquartered in Washington, D.C.; the NFL is headquartered in New York; the arbitration proceedings took place in New York; and the award was issued in New York." It's a win for the NFL as the real legal battle gets going.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, "inside the building" there is a belief at Patriots headquarters that suspended QB Tom Brady "ends up on the field."

RapSheet isn't specific about when the Patriots expect Brady "on the field," but this presumably is in reference to Week 1. The Patriots are staying optimistic that Brady's four-game suspension could be overturned or postponed in a court of law. We've seen betting books take the Patriots' Opening Day game against the Steelers off the board while the situation plays out.

Suspended QB Tom Brady wrote on Facebook Wednesday morning, "I am very disappointed by the NFL’s decision to uphold the 4 game suspension against me. I did nothing wrong, and no one in the Patriots organization did either."

"...To try and reconcile the record and fully cooperate with the investigation after I was disciplined in May, we turned over detailed pages of cell phone records and all of the emails that Mr. [Ted] Wells requested," Brady continued. "...There is no "smoking gun" and this controversy is manufactured to distract from the fact they have zero evidence of wrongdoing. I authorized the NFLPA to make a settlement offer to the NFL so that we could avoid going to court and put this inconsequential issue behind us as we move forward into this season. The discipline was upheld without any counter offer. I respect the Commissioner's authority, but he also has to respect the CBA and my rights as a private citizen. I will not allow my unfair discipline to become a precedent for other NFL players without a fight." Brady also explained his "destroyed" cell phone in his response, saying he simply replaced an old, broken Samsung phone with a new iPhone 6.
