Judge: Brady Can Play Week 1

on

Tom Brady will be under center for the Patriots’ season opener next Thursday.The ruling, handed down by U.S. District Judge Richard Berman on Thursday morning, nullified the four-game suspension levied against the Patriots quarterback back on May 11 when Ted Wells, an independent investigator hired by the NFL, asserted Brady’s connection to deflated footballs used in the AFC Championship Game this past season.The decision came after multiple attempts at settlement between Brady, his council, the NFL Players Association and the NFL. On Monday, Berman dismissed both sides after just a few minutes after realizing they were too far apart to reach a settlement.There is no word yet on whether the NFL will file an appeal.
