NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell says the league is ready to move on from "Deflategate."

A federal appeals court ruled Monday that New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady must serve a four-game suspension handed down by the NFL for the use of underinflated footballs at the AFC championship game in January 2015. The court overturned a ruling by a Manhattan judge while siding with the league in a battle with the players union.

Speaking the day before the NFL draft, Goodell says the appellate court "reaffirmed our authority and the underlying facts to the case, so we think it came out in the right place." He says the league would like to "move forward."

The NFL Players Association could decide to appeal the decision.
