Bill Polian: Tom Brady could be suspended in December or January

Federal judge Richard M. Berman ruled to overturn the NFL’s four-game suspension of Tom Brady for the infamous “Deflategate” Thursday, putting an end (for now) to the months-long battle between the league and its poster boy.

Not long after the ruling, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell announced his intentions to appeal the the decision.

So how surprising was Berman’s decision to overturn the suspension? Bill Polian answered the questioned on SiriusXM NFL Radio.

“I can’t say I was surprised, given what was transpiring in the courts,” Polian said. “I think the judge felt that the process was unfair and found a way, flimsy though it may be, to rule that way.”

Pollian explained what might happen next with the appeals process.

“You never know what a federal judge is going to do,” Polian said. “It’s always possible that he could be serving a suspension in December, or January, if the second circuit overturns.”
