Kraft: Patriots Will Not Appeal Fine Or Loss Of Draft Picks
New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft is accepting the "Deflategate" sanctions against his team. Speaking at the Spring League Meetings, he says the whole process has gone on too long and the team will not appeal the one-million-dollar fine or loss of draft picks.
Quarterback Tom Brady was suspended four games for his role in the scandal. The Players' Association is currently appealing that suspension.
The Patriots were penalized after an investigation determined it was more probable than not that at least some team personnel intentionally deflated footballs below league standards during the AFC Championship Game in January. (Metro Networks Inc.)
