Roger Goodell has decided to uphold Tom Brady's 4-game suspension for his involvement in Deflategate and violating the leagues policy on the integrity of the game. According to CNBC, it is apparent that Roger Goodell got his hands on "important new information", during Tom Brady's appeal hearing.
On June 18, Brady "directed that the cell phone he had used for the prior four months be destroyed" despite the NFL investigators request.
June 18th is nearly four months since the onset of the Deflategate investigation and according to NFL.com Tom Brady exchanged more than 10,000 text messages during that time. The 10,000 text messages are no longer retrievable.
Brady appealed his 4-game suspension in late May with the help of the NFLPA, but efforts have fallen short. According to the Wells Report it was "more probable than not" that Brady participated in the Deflategate scandal.
Tom Brady is now eligible to play in week 6 agains the Colts. Jimmy Garoppolo, who played sparingly last year, is now in line to start the first four games for the Patriots.
Brady is eligible to play in training camp and during the preseason but we will have to wait and see what Tom Brady next move is.
