The NFL probably wishes the whole conversation surrounding controversial Cleveland Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson would just go away already. But that clearly isn’t going to be the case…Nor should it.
During last night broadcast of Thursday Night Football between the Browns and the Pittsburgh Steelers on Amazon Prime, sideline reporter Kaylee Hartung provided a report on Watson’s current status, including what he must do in order for the league and the Browns to allow him to step back onto the field.
