Re­port: Union has pro­posed a set­tle­ment on Brady sus­pen­sion

Cape Breton Post - - SPORTS -

A per­son fa­mil­iar with the pro­posal tells The As­so­ci­ated Press on Thurs­day the of­fer was “met with si­lence.” The per­son spoke on con­di­tion of anonymity be­cause the NFL Play­ers As­so­ci­a­tion’s of­fer was con­fi­den­tial. There is no timetable on when Com­mis­sioner Roger Good­ell will rule on the New Eng­land quar­ter­back’s ap­peal. Sev­eral media re­ports in­di­cated the union’s pro­posal called for Brady pay­ing a large fine, but with no sus­pen­sion. The Pa­tri­ots paid a record $1 mil­lion fine and were stripped of two draft picks, in­clud­ing a No. 1 se­lec­tion next year. Brady was sus­pended for his role in us­ing un­der­in­flated foot­balls in the Pa­tri­ots’ vic­tory over the Colts in the AFC ti­tle game. A league-sanc­tioned in­de­pen­dent re­port found Brady at the least was “gen­er­ally aware” of the use of the foot­balls. The As­so­ci­ated Press
