What Could Be Holding Up The Deflategate Appeal Ruling
It has been a month since Tom Brady appealed his four-game suspension; a plea deal is possibly in the works.By Matt Moreno | July 23, 2015
It's been about a month since Patriots quarterback Tom Brady appealed his four-game "Deflategate" suspension to NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, and we still don't have a decision. It's got many asking: What's the holdup?
A report from NBC Sports' Mike Florio says the two sides are discussing, or at least have discussed, a plea deal. No progress has been made thus far, but it makes sense Goodell would be seeking a non-suspension-involved punishment.
The NFL Players Association has said for weeks it would go to court and contest any suspension handed down to Brady.
