The wait for NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell’s ruling on Patriots quarterback Tom Brady’s appeal of his four-game suspension continues on Friday and we’ll be discussing it during PFT Live.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media will also be on the show a day after he reported that the Seahawks and quarterback Russell Wilson will stop discussing a contract extension if one isn’t reached before the start of training camp.

Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul remains in a Florida hospital after suffering injuries to his hand while setting off fireworks last weekend and he’ll get some visitors from the team on Tuesday.

The Giants are trying to get a better handle on Pierre-Paul’s outlook for the early part of the 2015 season and their best path for working around his potential absence. Meanwhile, Pierre-Paul hasn’t signed his franchise tender and has some choices of his own to make about how to move forward on the contractual front.

On Tuesday’s PFT Live, Dave Smith, who is filling in for Mike Florio, will talk to Paul Schwartz of the New York Post about all of the possible paths that things can take once the full extent of Pierre-Paul’s injuries are known.
