NFL gets a judicial smackdown

Charles P. Pierce writes of today's Brady ruling: "It's impossible to read [Judge Richard] Berman's decision as anything other than a statement of complete disgust that this alleged petty gamesmanship ever wound up in his courtroom -- and his disgust is focused almost exclusively on the NFL." Brady freed

A Steelers source said locker room doesn't seem happy with Brady/DeflateGate news largely because of timing, with the Steelers-Patriots game seven days out, but at least players know what to expect now

NFLPA president: 'Happy for Tom'

Eric Winston's statement: "It's important to remember that when one player's rights are upheld, it is a victory for all players. However, this whole ordeal has highlighted the need for players and owners to work together to make all policies fair and transparent for everyone in our game. I welcome an opportunity to have open and constructive dialogue with the league in the near future for how we can best accomplish that."

The following players won't dress for the Packers' preseason finale against the Saints: WR Randall Cobb, DB Micah Hyde, CB Demetri Goodson, LB Sam Barrington, G T.J. Lang, WR Ty Montgomery, DE Datone Jones. It's likely several others, including QB Aaron Rodgers, will be healthy scratches.

About an hour and a half before kickoff in Indianapolis, it looked as if the Bengals' offensive starters we're going through a modified practice. A lone uptempo drive got several sweating through their shirts. It's likely the only action they'll see tonight.

The Ravens a little more advanced with their technology.

Reiss: Kraft 'unlikely' to go after NFL

Even with Tom Brady's suspension vacated, don't expect Patriots' owner Rober Kraft to try and get his team's penalities revoked, writes ESPN's Mike Reiss. It's business-related

T.J. Ward suspended for Broncos' opener

Broncos Pro Bowl safety T.J. Ward will be suspended for the Sept. 13 regular-season opener against the Ravens for a violation of the league's personal conduct policy, the team confirmed. Full story

4 games with Brady change the season

Teams that start an NFL season 2-2 make the playoffs just 36% of the time.

Don’t kid yourself -- this means a lot, writes Kevin Seifert. Better with Brady
