Report: Tom Brady was open to accepting a one game suspension

tom-brady-nfl-divisional-round-baltimore-ravens-new-england-patriots20-850x560Monday was the day that everyone hopes end the saga between New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and the NFL. The league has been adamant in their pursuit to get Brady to admit what he has done just so they can save face. While Brady hasn’t backed off from his stance either, there was a point in time where he considered other options. According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media, Brady was open to accepting a one game suspension.


For the first time, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was believed to be “open” to serving a one-game suspension for not cooperating with Ted Wells’ investigation as part of a potential settlement. It was a possibility heading into settlement talks in court Monday, according to someone briefed on his thinking.

However, talks never got that far.

Settlement talks between Brady and the NFL broke down Monday when Judge Richard M. Berman visited the two sides and informed them they were too far apart and there was no point to continuing. As has been the case over the past several weeks, talks never evolved because the Patriots quarterback maintained his position that he would not accept the findings of the Wells Report and was unwilling to accept responsibility for his potential role in the deflation of footballs.


I love the fact that Brady is not budging and bowing down to the NFL on this. Even though Brady will have to serve a four game suspension, he still never admitted to any wrong doing.
