It’s inevitable that the NFL will suspend Cleveland Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson. The questions are for the way long, and can Watson appeal the choice.
A latest report from Pro Football Talk says that Judge Sue L. Robinson will rule for a suspension ranging somewhere between 2-8 games.
“Whether the league would appeal such an final result, and whether Commissioner Roger Goodell or his designee would impose a dramatically longer ban, stays to be seen.” PFT’s Mike Florio writes.
On Monday, Yahoo’s Charles Robinson reported that Watson, his camp and the NFL Players Association have already decided to sue the NFL in federal court if he’s handed a year-long suspension. Now, Florio says it’s unlikely to even get to that time.
Many fans have expressed the opinion that a 2-8 game suspension is not a big enough punishment.
Watson, who was hit with over two dozen civil lawsuits alleging sexual misconduct, has settled most of those cases.
A ruling from Judge Robinson is predicted in the approaching days or even weeks.
