The National Football League has upheld a four-game suspension of New England Patriots star quarterback Tom Brady for his role in the football tampering scandal known as “Deflategate,” the league announced in a news release Tuesday.
Commissioner Roger Goodell, in affirming the suspension he handed down in May, said new information about the destruction of Brady’s cell phone showed the four-time Super Bowl champion “sought to hide evidence of his own participation in the underlying scheme to alter the footballs.”
Don Yee, Brady’s agent and attorney, said Brady did nothing wrong.
“The appeal process was a sham, resulting in the commissioner rubber-stamping his own decision,” Yee said.
The NFL Players Association said it would file an appeal, presumably in federal court, on Brady’s behalf.
