Deshaun Watson: NFL will ‘probably’ seek one-year suspension

According to a recent report by Mark Maske of the Washington Post, the NFL will argue that Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson should receive a “significant” suspension for violating the league’s personal conduct policy. Maske says “meaningful” means a full season based on a conversation with someone in Watson’s camp. A person familiar with the NFL’s position declined to give a specific length but said, “meaningful would be the proper term.” The league hopes the entire disciplinary process, including any potential appeals, will be resolved by the start of training camp.

Fantastic impact: Watson’s situation has been well documented in recent months, with 24 civil lawsuits filed against him by women accusing him of sexual misconduct. He was cleared of criminal charges and Watson and his attorney maintain his innocence. However, the NFL conducted its own investigation, and the league’s personal conduct policy does not require criminal prosecution. According to Maske’s report, the NFL is preparing to present the findings of its investigation to Sue L. Robinson, the former U.S. District Judge who is the disciplinary officer jointly appointed by the league and the NFL Players Association under the driving policy. If the NFL really wants the issue resolved before training camp, an announcement could be coming soon. Fantasy managers in redraft leagues who drafted Watson have rolled the dice on a potential suspension, and this report makes him an even riskier bet.
