NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell's ruling comes nearly a month after Brady appealed his four-game suspension.By Matt Moreno | July 28, 2015
New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady will be suspended four games after losing his appeal to the NFL for the Deflategate controversy.
In a statement, the NFL said the reasoning behind the upheld suspension was Brady's cell phone, seen as a key piece of evidence in the case, had been destroyed.
Originally, the NFL suspended Brady for four games, fined the Patriots $1 million and stripped them of their first- and fourth-round draft picks.
