Tom Brady Suspended 4 Games, Patriots Docked 2 Draft Picks


The NFL has suspended Tom Brady for the first four games of the 2015 season, fined the Patriots $1 million and yanked their 1st round draft pick in the 2016 draft and a 4th round pick in the 2017 Draft in the wake ofDeflateGate.

The suspension will almost certainly be appealed. But as of right now, the 3-time Super Bowl MVP will have to sit out the first four games of the season, which would be against:

vs Pittsburgh, Sept. 10
at Buffalo, Sept. 20
vs Jacksonville, Sept, 27
at Dallas, Oct. 11th

His first game back, naturally, would be against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday night football. The NFL really set that one up nicely. A rematch against the Colts! The team that ran a “sting operation” on Brady? On National TV!

That’s assuming his appeal is denied.
