Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross has been suspended by the National Football League after an investigator found the team violated the league’s anti-tampering rule by trying to lure quarterback Tom Brady and former head coach Sean Payton. 

Ross will be suspended through Oct. 17 and won’t be allowed at the team’s facility, nor can he represent the club at any team or league event. Ross also has to pay a fine of $1.5 million and will be removed from all the league committees indefinitely. The Dolphins will also forfeit its first-round draft pick in 2023 and third-round pick in 2024.
