Bob Kraft won’t appeal Pats punishment

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Patriots owner Robert Kraft announced that the team won’t appeal the fine or loss of draft picks from the Deflategate incident. But, Schefter noted, Brady’s appeal will proceed.

Mike Garafolo of Fox Sports provided Kraft’s full statement:

“Now I know that a lot of Patriots fans are going to be disappointed in that decision (to not appeal) but I hope they trust my judgment and know that I really feel at this point in time, taking this off the agenda, this is the best thing for the New England Patriots, our fans and the NFL, and I hope you all can respect that.”
