Brady Appeal Hearing Ends After More Than 10 Hours

This article is more than 5 years old.

Tom Brady's appeal of his four-game suspension lasted more than 10 hours Tuesday, ending in the early evening. There is no timetable for any decision on the appeal.

The sight of Commissioner Roger Goodell leaving the league offices after he heard Brady and representatives from the players' union during the lengthy meeting, confirmed its conclusion.

No details were immediately available.

Brady was suspended by the league for his role in the use of deflated footballs in the AFC championship game win over Indianapolis. He arrived at the NFL's Park Avenue offices Tuesday morning, as did attorney Jeffrey Kessler, who is leading Brady's defense.

The hearing was expected to adjourn in late afternoon, but carried well beyond that.
