Deflated: The NFL dropped the hammer on Tom Brady and the New England Patriots yesterday over Deflategate. The league suspended Brady for four games without pay and hit the Patriots with a $1 million fine and took away a first-round draft pick in next year’s draft (as well as a fourth-round pick in the 2017 draft). The punishment comes after last week’s release of a report by attorney Ted Wells, who was hired by the league to investigate allegations of game balls being tampered with. Wells found that “it is more probable than not” that Brady was aware that Patriots employees were deflating game balls before January’s AFC Championship game. The NFL said Brady’s actions were detrimental to the integrity of the sport. Brady’s agent promised to appeal the decision. More on this story

The White House dismissed the report as “baseless.” More on this story
