Adam Schefter guesses that Patriots QB Tom Brady will face 'some sort of suspension' for DeflateGate

Masslive - [Full Article]

So what comes next for Tom Brady and the New England Patriots?

That's up for the NFL to determine. The Wells Report didn't find absolute evidence that the Patriots tampered with footballs. It found reason to believe they did.

ESPN's Adam Schefter appeared on WEEI Thursday morning to offer his take.

"If I had to guess, and I want to emphasize this is a guess, my guess is that Tom Brady is going to get some sort of suspension, a short suspension," Schefter said, via "He's going to appeal it. He's going to have grounds to appeal it. He may even waive the appeal and this whole thing about air pressure in footballs continues to go on and detract from a sport and a defending world champion in a completely unnecessary way."

Fantasy Impact: 

Obviously, Brady's fantasy stock will take a hit if he's suspended. It will also impact the Patriots skill position players (e.g. Rob Gronkowski, Julian Edelman and Brandon LaFell) to a lesser degree.
