Tom Brady Breaks Silence on Deflategate Ruling: "We Have All Lost"

Read Brady's apology for the scandal

Sadie Gennis

Now that a judge overturned his Deflategate suspension, Tom Brady is speaking out on the incident and apologizing to everyone affected by the scandal.

"While I am pleased to be eligible to play, I am sorry our league had to endure this," Brady wrote in a lengthy Facebook post on Friday. "I don't think it has been good for our sport -- to a large degree, we have all lost. I am also sorry to anyone whose feelings I may have hurt as I have tried to work to resolve this situation.

Brady was suspended for four games after the New England Patriots were accused of tampering with the footballs used in the Super Bowl, which the team won. The four-time Super Bowl champion maintained his innocence and earlier this week, the suspension was overturned.

"I love the NFL. It is a privilege to be a member of the NFL community and I will always try to do my best in representing my team and the league in a way that would make all members of this community proud," he continued. "I look forward to the competition on the playing field and I hope the attention of NFL fans can return to where it belongs -- on the many great players and coaches who work so hard every week, and sacrifice so much, to make this game great. Most importantly, I look forward to representing the New England Patriots on Thursday night in our season opener. I hope to make all of our fans proud this year ... and beyond!
