The NFL doesn't think it's necessary to reopen settlement talks with Tom Brady and the NFL Players Association regarding the quarterback's four-game suspension, according to a source.
The league doesn't believe the NFLPA or anyone from Brady's camp has provided a reason to renew settlement discussions after the suspension was upheld by a federal appeals court this week.
The two sides engaged in talks for several months last summer in an attempt to reach a settlement in Brady's appeal of the suspension for his involvement in the Deflategate scandal.
Roger Goodell, speaking to reporters Wednesday in Chicago on the eve of the NFL draft, said the league would like to move forward.
"I think the most important thing from the ruling is that the judgment that the district court made last summer was incorrect. They obviously reversed that," Goodell said. "They reinforced our authority here, and they reinforced the fact that we have the facts correct, that it was a fair process and that we came to the conclusion that they supported. From our standpoint, we think that's the right decision and frankly should have been the decision last time."
