So, Tom Brady isn't looking to go quiet into the night.
Last night, his agent Don Yee announced that the three-time Super Bowl MVP would appeal his suspension. Tonight we learned how he plans to go about that.
He's started by hiring Jeffrey Kessler, who has been descibred as "The NFL's worst nightmare for decades".
He is the NFLPA's outside counsel, and has won appeals for players in every single one of Goodell's firestorms. That includes throwing out a season long suspension for Jonathan Vilma as part of Bountygate. He also represented and won appeals cases for Ray Rice, Adrian Peterson and Greg Hardy. He also successfully represented Latrell Sprewell after he choked his coach, according to Mark Daniels of the Providence Journal.
Those aren't exactly the greatest names for Tom Brady to be associated with, but at this point, it is what it is.
Brady is facing a four game suspension. These are usually reduced by at least half, but with the team that Brady is assembling, it's being thrown out there that Brady could miss no time at all.
Schefter on Sportscenter just said he got a text from a source today: "Brady's (legal) team is unreal. My prediction..he won't miss a game"— Michael Dyer (@Mike_Dyer13) May 12, 2015
