We begin in the NFL where it looks like the protracted deflategate saga could finally be coming to an end today, and, with a ruling on Tom Brady’s four game suspension in the offing, it looks like the Patriots quarterback could finally be willing to accept some sort of punishment.
According to NFL.com, Brady was, as of Monday, open to serving a one game ban for not cooperating with Ted Wells’ initial investigation. It remains to be seen whether this would be deemed acceptable.
Elsewhere in the league, two NFL franchises have named their starting quarterbacks for the upcoming 2015 season.
The Buffalo Bills have opted for former Ravens back up Tyrod Taylor, whilst Robert Griffin III could be done in Washington after the Redskins named Kirk Cousins as their starter.
Across to the NBA, and the Los Angeles Lakers have looked to the Euroleague to bolster their roster.
Numerous reports, including Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski, have stated that the famous franchise have agreed a one-year deal with Brazilian guard Marcelo Huertas, most recently of Barcelona.
Finally, in baseball, the St. Louis Cardinals maintained their position at the top of the MLB standings after a 8-5 home win over the Washington Nationals last night.
The Nationals had been up 5-3 midway through the seventh innings but gave up five runs to the Cardinals to lose the game.
