A federal judge deflated Deflategate on Thursday, erasing New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady‘s four-game suspension for a controversy that the NFL claimed threatened football’s integrity.

The written decision frees Brady to prepare for the Sept. 10 season opener against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
