Tom Brady's Appeal Begins Tomorrow with Ted Wells Present


On Tuesday, Tom Brady will go before NFL commissioner Roger Goodell to plead his appeal on the four-game suspension he was handed for Deflategate. While Goodell will be the one deciding the fate of Brady initially, the NFL now says that Ted Wells will also be at the meeting. The attorney, who crafted the report that found that it was “more probable than not” that Brady knew about the deflated balls, will be present to answer questions from both sides.

Having Wells present seems to better benefit Goodell’s side, as he will look to further support the extensive report he already wrote. Brady will have a difficult appeal process that is set to begin tomorrow and end by Thursday at the latest. The NFLPA and Brady’s lawyer will all be there to attempt to exonerate the four-time Super Bowl champion quarterback.
