Patriots president Jonathan Kraft revealed last week that the Patriots planned to unveil a banner at their season opener in support of quarterback Tom Brady if his four-game suspension had been upheld. 

Kraft spoke coyly about the banner’s design in an interview with CSN New England

“[Brady’s jersey number] was on it. Not ‘free,’” Kraft explained. “And there may have been some other things that were on the banner. It was much more factual and substantive than that.  Tom may have been a three-time Super Bowl MVP and a four-time Super Bowl winner, and that may have been a part of it too.”

Report: Patriots asked NFL to reinstate suspended employees

NFL Network’s Melissa Stark tweeted a photo of the banner Thursday evening.

After federal judge Richard Berman ruled against the NFL, Brady will be under center when the Patriots play the Pittsburgh Steelers on Thursday night in Foxborough.
