The NFL said Tuesday that it has upheld its four-game suspension of New England Patriots Quarterback Tom Brady.

The decision, made by Commissioner Roger Goodell, was made in part because of "important new information" disclosed by Brady and his representatives during the appeal hearing, the NFL said.

This includes the June 18 disclosure that Brady had "directed that the cell phone he had used for the prior four months be destroyed" despite investigators' request to access information stored on that device.
