New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady will need to complete a legal “hail mary” to avoid spending the first four games of the 2016 NFL season on the sidelines. The U.S. Second Circuit Court of Appeals’ three-judge panel voted 2-1 Monday to reinstate Brady’s suspension for his role in the “Deflategate” scandal.
The panel’s decision overturned a previous ruling by a Federal District Court Judge Richard Berman, who determined last summer that the NFL’s four-game suspension should not stand, allowing Brady to play the entire 2015 season. The league penalized Brady after it determined that he had knowledge that Patriots employees deflated footballs used in the 2015 AFC Championship game.
