The Deflategate saga is still rumbling on, with no end in sight for the controversy that has dominated NFL headlines over the off-season.

At the moment, Tom Brady is still banned for the first four games of the 2015 season, no matter how much the New England Patriots and NFLPA are fighting the suspension in a court in New York this week.

And if reports emanating today are to be believed, Brady could be set to finally accept his fate and take a suspension.

Brady Willing

According to a report from ESPN's NFL insider Adam Schefter - who is usually right on these things - Brady would be willing to accept a suspension of sorts.

"Tom Brady is open to accepting some form of suspension, but only if it can be for failing to cooperate with the NFL rather than admitting to the Wells' Report findings, per league sources."

Schefter went on to say that the NFL are demanding that Brady admit that he was involved in the conspiracy to deflate footballs, but the Patriots quarterback has denied that at every single opportunity.

"The NFL has been adamant that Brady admits to the report's findings, something he doesn't seem willing to ever do," Schefter went on to add. "With that in mind, settlement discussions have gone "nowhere", according to sources, and the two sides are back in court today."

The Patriots need Brady to be suspended for less than the four games he currently is, but if that means he has to admit guilt then we'll be at a stalemate yet again.
