NFLPA files formal complaint over Malcolm Butler's benching
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

The NFLPA filed a formal complaint Thursday over the punishment of Patriots safety Malcolm Butler during team OTAs, per the Boston Globe

Butler was late to a team practice during OTAs due to a flight being delayed due to inclement weather. The team responded by preventing him from practicing. But OTA sessions are considered voluntary by the NFL, which raises issues about the team's handling of the situation. 

Butler, who declined to speak on the benching at the time, is not involved in the complaint process.

Tom Brady appeal hearing ends after nearly 11 hours
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

The appeal hearing for Patriots' quarterback Tom Brady over his "deflate-gate" suspension ended on Tuesday after nearly 11 hours. 

NFL executive Greg Aiello tweeted, "The Tom Brady appeal hearing concluded tonight after 10 hours of testimony. No further hearings are scheduled."

NFL Players Association attorney Jeffrey Kessler said that the union presented a "compelling case" and that Brady was present until "the bitter end," per CNN's Rachel Nichols

Brady didn't speak or testify at the hearing, per the New York Post

There is no timetable for Roger Goodell to make a ruling on the appeal. Greg Hardy's appeal was heard on May 28, and no ruling has been released on that case yet.
