NFL Notes: Tom Brady, Packers, Raiders, Ravens, & Redskins


Tom Brady

  • Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the NFL has filed a motion on an expedited briefing schedule for their appeal of Tom Brady‘s suspension.
  • Rapoport adds that this would mean arguments likely wouldn’t be heard until early next year.
  • Rapoport lists Brady’s case schedule as: Opening briefs on October 26; Response due December 7; Reply due December 21; Oral arguments requested for January, 2016 if schedule permits.


Both Packers RB Eddie Lacy and WR Davante Adams seemed positive about their ankle injuries.

“I wouldn’t even say it’s an injury, it’s just something that hurts right now. Nothing catastrophic,” Adams said, per Rob Demovsky.

Lacy added: “I felt good enough to be able to keep going longer than what was expected though. It’s cool,” per Demovsky.


The city of Oakland and the Raiders have re-started talks regarding a potential new stadium that could also house the Oakland A’s, according to Bill Williamson.

Scott McKibben, the executive director of the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum Authority, said his talks with the Raiders were in the “exploratory stages.”

“We’re in the fact-finding stage on both sides,” said McKibben.

The city of Oakland has until the end of this year to come up with a plan for a new stadium. However, if there isn’t a deal in place, the Raiders are expected to pursue their plan to join the Chargers’ Carson project.
