New England Patriots Quarterback Tom Brady has filed an appeal to overturn the National Football League's decision to suspend him for four games for his role in the so-called "Deflate-gate" scandal, it was reported Thursday. NFL.com reported that Brady is citing lack of evidence in the 243-page report linking him to the inappropriate deflating of game balls used in the AFC Championship game following the 2014 season so that they would be easier to grasp and throw. The report said it was "more probable than not" that Brady was aware of the activity, but noted that he also did not fully cooperate with the league's investigation. Brady, who helmed the Patriots' offense en route to a Super Bowl victory, is due to miss the first four games of the upcoming 2015 season without pay.
