NEW YORK (AP) Tom Brady's lawsuit against the NFL in which he wants his four-game suspension overturned will be heard in New York instead of Minnesota.

Brady and the players' union filed their suit Wednesday in Minnesota. But the NFL already had filed papers Tuesday in New York, moments after announcing that Commissioner Roger Goodell upheld the suspension for Brady's involvement in the use of underinflated footballs in the AFC championship game.

U.S. District Court Judge Richard Kyle, based in Minnesota, ordered the transfer.


Fans cheer Brady to open training camp

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) Tom Brady received a big cheer from Patriots fans when he came out on the practice field Thursday for New England's first practice of training camp.

Jags' Clemons handling 'personal things'

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) Jacksonville Jaguars defensive end Chris Clemons is a no-show for training camp.

RG3 putting 'focus on the future'

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) Robert Griffin III says he wants to put his up-and-down past in the NFL behind him and "focus on the future."

Pryor trying to catch on as Browns WR

BEREA, Ohio (AP) With broad shoulders, long legs and speed to burn, there's no doubt Terrelle Pryor looks like a wide receiver. He has to prove he can play the position.

A former quarterback with Oakland, Pryor has transitioned to wide receiver and will try to win a roster spot with the Browns, who are intrigued by the 6-foot-4, 225-pounder's ability. Pryor believes he can pull off the switch, but knows it won't be easy because he lacks experience.


Chiefs S Berry returns to practice

ST. JOSEPH, Mo. (AP) There was a moment in the early stages of chemotherapy when Eric Berry was having breakfast with his father, and the enormity of what faced him was so great that he broke down and cried.

For 30 minutes, one of the toughest players on the Kansas City Chiefs wept.


Redskins, Kerrigan strike multiyear deal

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) Now that he has a multiyear contract extension, Washington Redskins linebacker Ryan Kerrigan realizes he'll be expected to take on more of a leadership role. Just not a loud one.

"I don't necessarily think that means being a vocal leader, being a `rah-rah' guy, because that's not me and never has (been). Probably won't ever be me," Kerrigan said Wednesday, when the Redskins announced his new deal.


Peterson back in pads, moving forward

MANKATO, Minn. (AP) Adrian Peterson burst through the line of scrimmage and veered toward the sideline as he headed up the field.

Safety Robert Blanton had the Minnesota Vikings running back in his sights and eased off the throttle as he went in to "thud" Peterson, looking to deliver a cordial bump during the team's first training camp practice with players in pads. To Blanton's surprise, Peterson lowered his shoulder and delivered a jolt to the fourth-year defensive back.


Cowboys sack leader Mincey not at camp

OXNARD, Calif. (AP) Dallas defensive lineman Jeremy Mincey hasn't shown up for training camp, and executive vice president Stephen Jones says the Cowboys won't discuss a new contract with him until he does.

Mincey is due to make $1.5 million in the final year of a two-year contract. He led the Cowboys with six sacks last season and provided leadership and stability for a defense that improved from one of the NFL's worst units in 2013.
