Tom Brady is filthy rich, so paying a fine rather than sitting out games would work great for him.

According to ESPN.com, Brady, the NFLPA and the NFL have had discussions about a settlement.

The offer, however, was met with “silence” by the NFL, the source said.

It is believed Brady is holding firm on his refusal to accept any suspension, though he would consider accepting a fine. If the NFL upholds any part of his suspension, he is expected to go to federal court to fight the decision.

Brady appealed his four-game ban June 23 in New York City, with commissioner Roger Goodell serving as arbitrator. It remains to be seen when the NFL will rule on that appeal.

Pro Football Talk is reporting that a select group of owners would prefer to see Brady serve his entire four-game ban.

If no agreement can be made, the NFLPA likely will file its challenge in either federal court in Massachusetts or Minnesota.
