FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady announced on his Facebook page Friday that he is no longer planning on proceeding with the legal process regarding his involvement in ‘Deflategate.’
Brady’s request for a second hearing was denied by the Second U.S. District Court of Appeals on Wednesday, leaving little optimism that his four-game suspension would ever be overturned.
According to CBS Sports, without appealing to the Supreme Court, Brady will be sidelined while Jimmy Garoppolo leads the Patriots’ offense for the beginning of the season.
Expect Brady to be back on the field when New England takes on the Browns in a Week 5 matchup.
