And now NFL has announced it. Tom Brady suspended four games, Patriots fined $1 million, lose two picks.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) May 11, 2015
Maybe it's just me, but that seems like a lot for a report that contained a lot of ifs in it. The Wells report was extremely flawed, posing more questions than it answered about the Patriots and Tom Brady's role in this story, which was overblown from the start. To me, they're trying to make up for earlier misteps with Ray Rice, AP, etc.
I would expect Brady to file an appeal sooner rather than later. Stay tuned for more.
