New York Post: New England Patriots Quarterback Tom Brady Will Be Suspended By NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell For Role In DeflateGate

New England Patriots Quarterback Tom Brady will be suspended by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell over Deflategate, according to the New York Post.  He will be the highest-profile player ever suspended in the 96-year history of the NFL.

Mr. Goodell’s decision is expected to be announced next week, and it is no longer a matter of whether or not the NFL commissioner will suspend Brady, but for how long.

The New York Post states there is little doubt that Goodell considers Brady’s role in Deflategate a “serious violation.”

A suspension would mean the Patriots would be without Tom Brady for a long period of time for just the second time in his career.

Sources state that the NFL is convinced that connecting all the dots of the evidence supplied by attorney Ted Wells “leads to one conclusion:  Tom Brady cheated,” writes the New York Post.

The investigation led by attorney Ted Wells found that “it is more probable than not” that Brady was “at least generally aware of the inappropriate activities” of locker room attendant Jim McNally and equipment assistant John Jastremski, writes CNN.

There is a general sense that the Wells Report supplied the NFL Commissioner with “enough ammunition to suspend Brady both for breaking the rules by ordering the deflation of footballs and by not cooperating with the investigation when he refused to turn over his cell phone to Wells’ investigators,” according the New York Post.

  1. Several thoughts. There are those who say every team cheats or tries to as though that were justification by itself for those efforts. I don’t doubt that, but when you get caught you get punished otherwise the rules are meaningless. Brady got caught and should be punished. The idea that he didn’t know what was going on is ludicrous. Plus he did not cooperate with the investigation. He should get a separate punishment for that.
