NFL – Tom Brady Punished For His Role In “Deflategate”

Posted on May 12, 2015 in Professional Sports News.

New England Patriots and former Wolverines quarterback Tom Brady was suspended four games without pay and his team was fined $1 million and docked two draft picks in penalties doled out by the NFL on Monday over the deflated footballs scandal.

The punishment was announced five days after the release of the long-awaited Wells report, which detailed what it called a “deliberate effort” by two Patriots employees to release air from footballs prior to the AFC Championship game against the Indianapolis Colts in January.

Brady, the report by NFL-appointed attorney Ted Wells said, was “generally aware” that locker room attendant Jim McNally and equipment assistant John Jastremski were letting the air out of game balls.
