Browns QB Deshaun Watson was suspended for 6 games, NFL has three days to appeal

The news, at last, descended early Monday morning that Judge Sue Robinson suggested a six-game suspension for Cleveland Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson.

Sunday night, the NFLPA declared that they, alongside Watson, would acknowledge Robinson’s decision and wouldn’t pursue, it and urged the NFL to do likewise. The NFL currently has three days to pursue Robinson’s choice; and in the event that NFL official Roger Goodell truly needed to, he could overrule the proposal. We will perceive the way things work out in such a manner this week.

In any event, we realize that Watson is most certainly gone for the initial six rounds of the normal season. He will in any case be permitted to take part in all of the instructional courses and the preseason games. Jacoby Brissett was finished the paperwork for this very reason, to ideally guide the boat in a triumphant bearing until Watson’s expected suspension was finished.

According to a football point of view, Browns fans were expecting a four-game suspension, since Cleveland seemingly has the simplest four-game stretch to open the time of any group in the NFL. Circumstances become difficult from that point forward, with the fifth and 6th games being against the Chargers and Patriots. A silver inner layer for those two games is that they are both at home.

Watson’s return is as of now booked for Week 7, a street game against the Baltimore Ravens prior to confronting the AFC Champion Cincinnati Bengals. Per Robinson’s decision, he would be permitted to rehearse again beginning in Week 4, which would give him an opportunity to get ready to the bring the game back. In light of everything, a circumstance Browns fans will likely happily take according to a football point of view. (I disdain that I continue to need to utilize that disclaimer, coincidentally.)

With Watson’s low base compensation in 2022, he would just be fined six game checks for a sum of $345,000. One note remembered for Robinson’s decision is that it “requires no back rubs other than coordinated by club faculty and no unfriendly inclusion with no policing.”

On Monday evening, co-proprietors Jimmy and Dee Haslam made an announcement saying they “regard Judge Robinson’s choice:

“Throughout this process, Deshaun and his representatives have abided by the newly created and agreed upon process for the NFLPA and the NFL to defer to the objective Judge Sue L. Robinson to comprehensively review all information and make a fair decision. We respect Judge Robinson’s decision, and at the same time, empathize and understand that there have been many individuals triggered throughout this process. We know Deshaun is remorseful that this situation has caused much heartache to many and he will continue the work needed to show who he is on and off the field, and we will continue to support him.”

The NFL likewise made an announcement saying the association office is likewise contemplating its best course of action, as per NFL.com:

“We thank Judge Sue L. Robinson, the independent disciplinary officer, for her review of the voluminous record and attention during a three-day hearing that resulted in her finding multiple violations of the NFL personal-conduct policy by Deshaun Watson. We appreciate Judge Robinson’s diligence and professionalism throughout this process.

“Pursuant to the Collective Bargaining Agreement, the NFL or the NFLPA on behalf of Watson may appeal the decision within three days. In light of her findings, the league is reviewing Judge Robinson’s imposition of a six-game suspension and will make a determination on next steps.”

The association has until 9 a.m. on Thursday to pursue the choice, as per ESPN’s Jake Trotter.
