Akin to chorus of a song that repeats itself way more than most, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady isn't done trying to get out of his DeflateGate suspension.

According to ABC News, Brady will now seek a reversal of his recently reinstated four-game suspension, and has filed a petition to do so with the 2nd Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals, the group that upheld the four-game ban in the first place.

"The facts here are so drastic, and so apparent, that the court should rehear it," Thedore Olsen, the lead lawyer of Brady's defense team, told ABC News.

The suspension will be prolonged even further until the Second Circuit declares whether or not they will hear the case. If they choose to hear the appeal, it would freeze the suspension even longer until the court reaches a decision. If they decided against hearing the appeal, the suspension will be back on as scheduled.

That is, unless Brady elects to try to appeal to the United States Supreme Court, which would put a temporary stay on the suspension until they decide whether or not to hear the case.

Most have said that Brady's chances to get the suspension overturned are not good, however, if it takes long enough, when he actually serves his four-game penalty could change from just the first weeks of the season.

The Bills take on the Patriots Week Four in New England -- currently in the four-game suspension window -- and again during Week 8 in Buffalo.
