Brady makes case in 10- hour hearing
After a 10- hour hearing, Tom Brady now must wait to find out if his appeal of a four- game suspension carried any weight with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.
Brady was suspended by the league for his role in the use of def lated footballs in the AFC championship game win over Indianapolis. He arrived at the NFL’s New York offices Tuesday morning, as did attorney Jeffrey Kessler, who is leading Brady’s defense.
It was growing dark when Goodell left the league headquarters after he heard Brady and representatives from the players union during the lengthy meeting. League security said Brady also had left.
No details of the hearing were immediately available.
This was the latest step in the protracted “Deflategate” scandal, and no decisions were expected Tuesday.
It is uncertain how soon Goodell will announce anything; he could decide to keep the suspension as it is, reduce it or completely wipe it clean.
