Tom Bradyannounced Friday (July 15, 2016) via Facebook that he’s giving up his fight against the NFL and will accept his four-game suspension for his alleged role in Deflategate. “It has been a challenging 18 months, and I have made the difficult decision to no longer proceed with the legal process,” the New England Patriots quarterback wrote.
