NEW YORK — After nearly nine months, the NFL scandal that would not go away is finally over. Tom Brady has been cleared of the charges set against him concerning “Deflategate,” and his four-game suspension has been overturned.
In January, the NFL conducted an investigation on the New England Patriots for deflating footballs in the AFC Championship game against the Colts.
Commissioner Roger Goodell gave Tom Brady a four-game suspension after the investigation, and appeals have been happening since.
Recently the case has been handled in federal court, where District Judge Richard Berman finally gave Brady his four games back.
Brady and the Patriots will start the season at 8:30 p.m. Sept. 10 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
