National Football League Commissioner Roger Goodell plans as early as next week to suspend Boston Patriots Quarterback Tom Brady for up to eight games at the beginning of the 2015-2016 season for his role in "Deflategate", according to media reports Saturday. A maximum suspension could put the Super Bowl MVP on the bench for half the regular season. Goodell reportedly is moving to punish Brady in the wake of a report that "it is more probable than not that Tom Brady was at least generally aware" that the Patriots' footballs used in the AFC championship win over Indianapolis had been deflated below the league's required minimum. Brady has denied involvement.
