Brady To Be Honorary Captain At Michigan During Suspension

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — Tom Brady has found at least one thing to do during his suspension.

The New England Patriots quarterback will return to his alma mater to be Michigan’s honorary captain Sept. 17 when it hosts Colorado.

Brady will sit out the first four games of the NFL season, serving a suspension because of his role in what has become known as “Deflategate.” The Patriots drafted Brady out of Michigan in the sixth round in 2000 after he shared time as senior with Drew Henson.

Michael Jordan will serve as honorary captain for the seventh-ranked Wolverines on Saturday when they open the season against Hawaii. Michigan is the first and only college or pro football team to wear Jordan Brand apparel, cleats and shoes.
