Less than three months ago, the front office and head coaching staff expressed supreme confidence in Deshaun Watson.
The team traded for him and then rewarded him with a $230M million fully guaranteed contract, which is a lot for a guy who sat out an entire season seeking a trade while dealing with an onslaught of sexual assault allegations.
There has been a lot of conflicting information out there about the impending punishment for Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson. One bit of news stated that the league was willing to accept a ruling of 6-8 games.
That report came from Rob Maaddi of the AP on Tuesday night:
“I’m also told the NFL, despite insisting on indefinite suspension, wants to avoid the appeals process – source said “a terrible situation for everyone involved” – so league is more likely to abide by Sue Robinson’s ruling IF she came back with 6-8 games,” Maaddi tweeted.
That report has now been debunked by Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com. She’s reporting that the league wouldn’t accept that decision.
That report means the NFL will appeal if Sue Robinson decides to only suspend Watson for 6-8 games.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
