Analysis: Both sources spoke on condition of anonymity Monday because no date for the appeal has been set. The collective bargaining agreement calls for it to be heard within 10 days. However, the league and the players' union can agree on delaying the hearing. The two sides don't agree on much else.

The league also fined the Patriots $1 million and took away two draft picks, including next years' first-round choice. Analysis: The NFL also indefinitely suspended the two equipment staffers who carried out the plan, including one who called himself "The Deflator." The league cited the integrity of the game in handing down the punishment five days after a report said Brady "was at least generally aware" of plans by two Patriots employees to prepare the balls to his liking, below the league-mandated minimum of 12.5 pounds per square inch.

Analysis: Brady declined to discuss his thoughts about the 243-page report that said that he was likely at least aware two team employees were breaking rules by deflating footballs for him. The New England quarterback said he will address things more once things play out and he is more comfortable. Brady is still waiting to see whether the league will discipline him with a fine, suspension or both.
