Patriots lose two draft picks inlcuding first-rounder in 2016
The NFL announced Monday that Tom Brady has been suspended without pay for four games for violating the NFL policy on the integrity of the game. The team will also be fined $1 million and will forfeit a 2016 first-rounder and 2017 fourth-round selection in the NFL Draft. (You can read full NFL statement here.)(NFL.com)
FF Today's Take:The hammer drops. Assuming an appeal doesn't reduce the suspension, Brady will be eligible to play in Week 6 against the Indianapolis Colts as the Patriots have a bye in Week 5. Jimmy Garoppolo will fill in from Brady during the first four games against Pittsburgh, Buffalo, Jacksonville and Dallas.
