On Monday morning, the federal appeals court overturned a previous motion that let Brady off with no penalty. The courts have sided with the league, which was battling with the players’ union. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell insisted the suspension was deserved.
“We are pleased the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit ruled today that the Commissioner properly exercised his authority under the collective bargaining agreement to act in cases involving the integrity of the game,” the NFL said in a statement.
The only other quarterback on the Patriots’ roster is Jimmy Garoppolo, who threw four passes in five games last season. Only one of those passes was completed.
Welp. Sorry, Pats fans.
