New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is now reportedly willing to accept some form of suspension for his role in Deflate-Gate.
By Robby Sabo
We all already understand that Deflate-Gate isn’t good for anybody.
This might be part of the reason why Tom Brady – albeit during the 24th hour – is reportedly now willing to accept some form of suspension.
According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, although talks of a settlement between Brady and the NFL aren’t anywhere closer, one of the greatest quarterbacks who’s ever laced them up could be willing to accept some form of suspension.
“The NFL has been adamant that Brady admits to the report’s findings, something he doesn’t seem willing to ever do,” he added. According to Schefter’s sources, settlement discussions have gone “nowhere,” and court proceedings are set to resume.
It is now the proverbial “24th hour” because according to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, an overwhelming push from around the league is urging the two sides to get this done and put it in the rear view mirror.
Per source, NFLPA will ask judge to either rule by September 4 or to issue an injunction allowing Brady to play pending a ruling.

Only time will tell whether a settlement comes, or whether we’ll have to endure another month of Deflate-Gate.[su_button url=”https://elitesportsny.com/2015/08/18/new-york-mets-washington-nationals-positional-breakdown/” target=”blank” background=”#000080″ size=”10″ wide=”yes” radius=”0″]NEXT: Mets, Nats Positional Breakdown[/su_button]
