If true, I wonder if this reflects Kessler's concern about the likely outcome. For all of our navel-gazing, the trial team has the benefit of first hand observation, plus very deep research on legal issues.J.McG said:Schefter was just on SportsCenter reporting Brady appears willing to accept a suspension (length not specified) on the explicit condition that the suspension be for failure to cooperate, with no admission of guilt or acceptance of Wells Report findings. NFL still insisting on an acceptance of Wells Report findings in any settlement. Also noteworthy, Goodell not expected to attend tomorrow's hearing either (NFL declined to confirm).
This is the first I've heard of Brady's willingness to accept a suspension of any length, and if true, it would appear to be a major, not to mention disappointing, concession on his part. Hoping this is more legal strategy than real negotiation, with Brady/NFLPA making an effort to appear conciliatory in front of Berman, while knowing Goodell et al. will never move off their insistence that Brady accept the Wells Report.
