Antonio Cromartie has Tom Brady’s back.

The New York Jets’ cornerback said Thursday on ESPN’s “First Take” show with Stephen A. Smith and Skip Bayless that Brady should not be suspended and deserves just a fine for his role in the DeflateGate saga.

The Patriots’ quarterback received a four-game suspension on May 11 for his team’s use of underinflated footballs in the AFC championship game against the Colts in January.

Commissioner Roger Goodell denied Brady’s appeal and upheld the four-game suspension last month.

The case is now being fought in the federal court system. New York Judge Richard Berman has scheduled a conference for next Wednesday to begin settlement talks. Goodell and Brady are expected to attend.

“Honestly, I don’t think he should be suspended,” Cromartie said.

Cromartie went on to say that a $25,000 fine would suffice for Brady.

Cromartie was also critical of Goodell’s role in the Brady situation.

“Nobody is safe,” he said. “No matter who you are, Roger will do what he wants to do. … It don’t matter what the rules say, he’s gonna make his own rules as he goes.”
