Yeah, this does seem like it could be the case. If the NFL is bound by administrative law in the way they carry out proceedings, then as soon as a person's administrative avenues for appeal are exhausted then they can petition for judicial review. Upon doing that, a temporary restraining order can be filed that would almost surely be granted, and then a longer injunction could be granted if his lawyers could convince the court that he has a meritorious case.
Unfortunately there's pretty much no transparency with this process, so I'm not sure if that's applicable or not. But that's how it works with other governing boards over professions.
