Tom Brady and NFL Players Association sue NFL in federal court

The NFL Players Association and the New England Patriots quarterback have filed a federal lawsuit to remove Tom Brady's four-game suspension for his role in the "Deflategate" scandal. One day after NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell rejected Brady's appeal, the 37-year-old four-time Super Bowl champion posted a 507-word statement on Facebook, telling fans: "I did nothing wrong." Additionally, New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft publicly supported the three-time Super Bowl MVP after Goodell rejected Brady's appeal, saying, "I was wrong to put my faith in the league." Just before the courts closed in Minnesota Wednesday, the NFL Players Association asked U.S. District Judge David Doty to either overturn Brady's four-game suspension or put it on hold until the case can be heard. The union asked Doty to revoke the suspension before September 4th, which would allow Brady to attend practice before the team's September 10 season-opener against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
