BATAVIA, N.Y. (AP) — NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell says he sees no avenue right now for a settlement with Tom Brady over the New England quarterback's four-game suspension in the "Deflategate" episode.

Goodell says the league will move forward based on whether the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals decides to grant Brady's request for the full court to re-hear the case. A three-judge panel from the appeals court in April reinstated Brady's suspension that was handed down and upheld on appeal by Goodell.

The type of appeal Brady is seeking from the court is rarely granted.
