U.S. District Judge Richard Berman vacated New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady's four-game suspension Thursday that was initially handed down by the NFL for his alleged role in a supposed scheme to intentionally deflate footballs in last year's AFC Championships game. With the decision from Berman, Brady becomes eligible to play in Week 1 of the NFL season, in which the Patriots will matchup against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Thursday Sept. 10.


The NFL could still appeal the decision.
