The two sides met privately in New York with U.S. District Judge Richard Berman, who has told both parties to seek a resolution before the Patriots’ season begins on Sept. 10.

Brady and NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, who imposed the four-game suspension, were not at the conference, the official said.
