Tom Brady: Suspension Overturned By Judge!

Sorry, fans of the Steelers, Bills, Jaguars and Cowboys - it looks like your teams will be facing off against one of the greatest QBs in NFL history in the very near future.

TMZ is reporting that just moments ago, Tom Brady's 4-game suspension was nullified by a US district court judge in NYC.

Brady and the NFLPA had been appealing the league's punishment for months, and for a while, it looked like (for once) things would not turn out in Tom Terrific's favor.

His initial petition was overturned and the NFL upheld his suspension.

That resulted in a lengthy hearing, and the most unfortunate courtroom sketch in history. 

The two parties failed to reach a settlement agreement (The NFL wanted Brady to admit he played a role in Deflategate, but the 4-time Super Bowl champ refused.), so the matter was left up to Judge Richard Berman to decide.

It seems that Brady is as invincible in the courtroom as he is on the field, because Berman found in his favor today, and early reports indicate he'll be in no way penalized for allegedly instructing equipment managers to under-inflate his game balls and obstructing the league's investigation into the matter.

Obviously, the real loser here is Patriots backup QB Jimmy Garoppolo, who was set to get his first career starts in Brady's absence. Maybe next year, Jimmy!
