Deflategate: What local athletes are saying

Some Bengals and even a Cincinnati Red took to Twitter to voice their opinion about Tom Brady's suspension being nullified. 

After the four-game suspension was lifted from New England's star quarterback, Bengals running back Jeremy Hill tweeted a video of Brady left hanging as he tries to give his teammates a high-five.   

Cornerback Adam Jones turned his attention to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. Jones tweeted "lmao" to Goodell's twitter account. 

Jones' tweet received over 3,200 retweets and over 2,400 favorites. 

Reds' catcher Brayan Pena,  a known Patriots fan, had a slightly different tone. A jubilant Pena tweeted, "@Patriots LOVE AMERICAAAAA LOVE AMERICAAAAAA, SUPER HAPPY FOR BRADY AND THE PATRIOTS NATION YESSSSSSS HE IS BACKKKKK"

One Bengals fan offered to send Pena an Andy Dalton jersey. 

A judge nullified the NFL's four-game suspension of Brady on Thursday. Goodell said the league plans to appeal the nullification.

"We will appeal today's ruling in order to uphold the collectively bargained responsibility to protect the integrity of the game," Goodell said in a statement.

NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy told the Associated Press the NFL will not seek an emergency stay on the decision, meaning Brady can play in the season opener Sept. 10 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
