Tom Brady Ends Quest to Appeal Deflategate Suspension

Deflategate may finally be over.

Tom Brady announced Friday he will no longer pursue legal avenues to appeal his four-game suspension in connection with the scandal .

Earlier this week, a federal appeals court rejected the four-time Super Bowl champion’s attempt to get a new hearing, leaving Brady with the option of trying to take his case to the Supreme Court.

And while Brady may not be interested in pleading his case to the highest court in the land, the NFL Players Association didn’t rule out looking into it on his behalf.

“After careful consideration and discussion with Tom Brady, the NFLPA will not be seeking a stay of the four game suspension with the 2nd Circuit,” the union said. “This decision was made in the interest of certainty and planning for Tom prior to the New England Patriots season. We will continue to review all of our options and we reserve our rights to petition for cert to the Supreme Court.”

Brady will miss the Patriots’ first four games and is expected to return for their fifth game, against the Browns.
