NFL takes first-round pick from Dolphins, issues suspensions after Tom Brady tampering investigation

The NFL finally handed down its sentence following a six-month-long investigation into the Miami Dolphins' alleged communications with Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady and former New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton this summer.

The league announced the Dolphins must forfeit their first-round pick in the 2023 draft as well as their third-round pick in the 2024 draft.

Dolphins owner Stephen Ross was also fined $1.5 million, suspended through Oct. 17, 2022 (the first six weeks of the season), indefinitely removed from all league committees and uninvited from all league meetings until next offseason. Vice Chairman Bruce Beal was also fined $500,000 and isn't allowed to attend any league meetings for the rest of the season.
