Shannon Sharpe says Tom Brady should be suspended, Pats should lose draft picks

Sharpe urged Roger Goodell to come down hard on New England.

Seemingly everyone has something to say about Deflate Gate.

Ted Wells' report was released Wednesday and confirmed that the Patriots deliberately deflated footballs and that quarterback Tom Brady was "generally aware" of the situation. That obviously taints New England's legacy.

On Thursday, Hall of Fame tight end Shannon Sharpe responded to the report, suggesting that Brady be suspened "at the bare minimum" 2-4 games. Sharpe went on to state that "the fines must exceed $1 million," and draft picks should be taken away.

The full video was posted on Sharpe's Facebook page and can be viewed below:

Brady could reportedly be suspended for up to a whole year, according to the Miami Herald's Armando Salguero.

"Commissioner, you hired all these czars . . . you don't need any of (them) to help you decide what you need to do on this," Sharpe said in the video. "You already know what you should do."

"The question is whether or not you are going to do it? We're watching, Commissioner."
