Steve Delvecchio, LarryBrownSports:
The NFL is going to reject Tom Brady’s appeal and uphold the four-game suspension he is facing for his alleged role in Deflategate, according to one report.

Stephen A. Smith said on ESPN’s “First Take” Tuesday morning that a source told him Roger Goodell will not reduce or overturn Brady’s suspension. Perhaps more shocking, Smith cited a separate source who told him Brady actually destroyed his own personal cell phone rather than just refusing to turn it over.
We have known all along that the bigger issue here is Brady’s lack of cooperation during the Ted Wells investigation. The NFL was furious that Brady wouldn’t give up “relevant” text messages and emails that might help clarify his level of involvement — or lack thereof — in Patriots equipment managers allegedly letting air out of game balls.

Stephen A. Smith seems to have all the inside information on DeFlategate. The smashed phone by Tom Brady was just “something I heard.” His appearance on Middays with MFB on WEEI-FM(Merloni, Fauria and Benz) also added the possibility that Tom Brady would accept the four game suspension. Stephen A. didn't stop with DeFlateGate.

Stephen A. has also informed his listeners that New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft actually took his punishment from the NFL to protect his head coach, Bill Belichick. The loss of first and fourth round draft picks plus the $1 million fine were acceptance by Bob Kraft to keep Bill Belichick on the sidelines. The fact that the Patriots' head coach was clearly exonerated by the Ted Wells report was not important.

If Stephen A. Smith had been meeting with Deep Throat in the Watergate garage, history may have been written differently.
