Deshaun Watson suspension: NFL to appeal


The NFL appealed the six-game suspension imposed on Cleveland Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson on Wednesday.

The decision, handed down Monday by the Judge Sue L. Robinson following an investigation jointly commissioned by the NFL and the Tour's Players' Association, comes within the three-day deadline. The union, which had previously indicated that it did not want to appeal, now has two days to react to the league's decision.

It will now be up to commissioner Roger Goodell himself, or whoever he will designate, to determine the duration of the suspension. The findings of the investigation, for their part, cannot be disputed, so that Watson will indeed have to be punished for having violated the policy of conduct of the circuit.

According to the information of the network ESPN, the circuit would like to impose an indefinite suspension of at least one full year as well as a substantial fine.

Watson has been accused by 24 women of having committed acts of a sexual nature, ranging from harassment to aggression, during massage sessions. He has, however, settled 23 of 24 out-of-court disputes.

Recently acquired from the Houston Texans for five draft picks, including three first-rounders, Watson has since agreed to a five-year, 230-year contract extension. million $.
