FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - Tom Brady wants to call Commissioner Roger Goodell as a witness in the appeal of the four-game suspension he was handed for "Deflategate."

The NFL players union says in its appeal of the penalties that Goodell can't hear the appeal because one of the issues is his credibility. The union also says it will call league vice president Troy Vincent, who handed down the punishment.

Brady was suspended and the Patriots were fined $1 million and docked a pair of draft picks for using illegally inflated footballs in the AFC championship game.

The appeal also complains that the evidence collected in the Wells Report doesn't support such a harsh penalty.
