NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has revealed that a decision on New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady will be "coming soon".
Brady has lodged an appeal against his four-game suspension as part of the 'Deflategate' scandal that erupted at the end of last season.
The Patriots were stripped of their 2016 first-round Draft choice and a 2017 fourth-round pick, while also receiving a significant fine.
Brady's team argued that the penalties were inconsistent with the NFL's past disciplinary action, and fought to have their punishments reduced.
The Patriots signal-caller came across well in the appeal process, with Goodell acting as arbitrator, according to CNBC.
