A decision has finally been made in the Deshaun Watson investigation.
Former Federal Judge Sue L. Robinson, who presided over the three-day hearing, made the decision and dropped the news on Monday.
It’s a decision every Browns fan was waiting to hear so they’d know when they could have Watson back on the field after he served his suspension.
However, after the shocking news came down, fans took to Twitter and began blasting the small suspension as opposed to others who have gotten more time for things not even as close to serious as what Watson was accused of.
Twenty-four women sued Watson claiming sexual misconduct during massage sessions. Watson settled 20 of the 24 lawsuits last month. Details of the settlements are confidential. About half of the women who filed lawsuits spoke to league investigators. Watson also spent several days talking to NFL investigators.
He faced no criminal charges after a Harris County Grand Jury and Brazoria County declined to indict Watson on any charges against him.
Last month, the Texans reached settlements with 30 women who made claims or were prepared to make claims against the organization for its alleged role regarding the allegations against Watson.
Browns coach Kevin Stefanski said last week that Jacoby Brissett would become Cleveland’s starter if Watson were to be suspended.
In 2020, Watson appeared in all 16 games for the Texans and completed 70.2 percent of his passes for 4,823 yards with 33 touchdowns and seven interceptions. He also rushed for 444 yards and three touchdowns.
