Tom Brady and the National Football League Players' Association have until Monday to file a response to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit's decision to reinstate the New England Patriots quarterback's four-game suspension.
Brady's team of lawyers, which now includes the 75-year-old Theodore B. Olson -- a U.S. solicitor general under former President George W. Bush who has argued before the Supreme Court 62 times -- will likely file for an "en banc" hearing before Monday's deadline, the Boston Globe reports.
That filing would allow all 13 of the active Second Circuit judges to decide whether or not an appeal of their ruling should be heard.
