There's more legal fallout from the so-called "deflategate" scandal, involving New England Patriots' quarterback Tom Brady.

In April, a panel of three appeals court judges ruled that Commissioner Roger Goodell was within his powers when he suspended Brady for his alleged role in deflating footballs during a 2015 playoff game. Brady and his legal team then requested a rehearing by the entire Second Circuit Court of Appeals.

The appellate court denied that request Wednesday.
