Brady and NFL prepare to battle over 'Deflategate' suspension

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 05/13/2015 - 09:30

A fan wearing a souvenir t-shirt from Super Bowl XLIX and listing New England Patriots players including quarterback Tom Brady waits in line to hear Brady speak at Salem State University in SalemThe National Football League's hardline stance on Tom Brady and his role in "Deflategate" sparked predictions on Tuesday that the star quarterback could see his four-game suspension reduced through an appeal. The severity of the punishment for the New England Patriots star combined with a spate of overturned NFL sanctions bode well for Brady in the appeals process, experts said. The appeal, which must be lodged by Thursday at 5 p.m. ET (2100 GMT), would follow a flurry of questions about NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell's handling of other high-profile cases last season. Brady's four-game suspension is seen as harsh by many, who note it is the same as what is handed to first time offenders violating the league's rules on performance-enhancing drugs, and double the number of games Goodell initially gave Baltimore Ravens star Ray Rice for a domestic violence incident.


Patriots get set to prepare for rare stint without Brady

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 05/13/2015 - 09:30
(Reuters) - The New England Patriots drafted quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo last year with an eye on readying for life without Tom Brady, but the reigning Super Bowl champions never anticipated that time would come so soon. Brady, 37, was suspended four games by the National Football League on Monday for his role in Deflategate and if his appeal is unsuccessful, Garoppolo will likely be under center when New England open their regular season on Sept. 10. Garoppolo, taken 62nd overall by New England, completed 70.4 percent of his 27 pass attempts for 182 yards and a touchdown in relief of Brady last season and did not take a snap during the team's playoff run. After New England drafted Garoppolo, there was plenty of debate about whether it was with the intention of replacing former Patriots backup Ryan Mallett or seeking an eventual successor to Brady.
