FILE - In this Aug. 28, 2015, file photo, New England Patriots' Tom Brady (12) leads his team onto the field before a preseason NFL football game against the Carolina Panthers in Charlotte, N.C. The last thing the Browns need right now is a ticked-off sup

His eyes staring straight ahead, Tom Brady strode down the corridors of Cleveland's FirstEnergy Stadium and into the visiting locker room three hours before he'll finally take the field in a 2016 NFL game.

Brady was wearing headphones around his neck and a glare on his face Sunday morning. He already had his game face on.

The New England quarterback came off the suspended list on Monday after serving a four-game suspension for his role in the use of deflated footballs in the 2014 AFC championship game. The Patriots went 3-1 without him.

''Deflategate'' is behind Brady. In front of him are the 0-4 Cleveland Browns at 1 p.m.
