 (CNN) — An attorney and agent for New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady said his client has done nothing wrong and the National Football League didn’t hold a fair hearing into the star’s four-game suspension for his alleged role in tampering with footballs before the AFC Championship game. “The appeal process was a sham, resulting in the commissioner (Roger Goodell) rubber-stamping his own decision,” Don Yee wrote.

The quarterback cooperated with the investigation and at an appeals hearing, Yee said. “Finally, as to the issue of cooperation, we presented the commissioner with an unprecedented amount of electronic data, all of which is incontrovertible. I do not think that any private citizen would have agreed to provide anyone with the amount of information that Tom was willing to reveal to the commissioner. Tom was completely transparent.”
