The NFL and the NFL Players Association agree on an eleven-game suspension for Cleveland Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson.
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell made no secret about his unhappiness in the summer of 2022, when Watson was suspended for just six games by a retired judge for violations of the NFL personal conduct policy related to sexual misconduct or assault allegations made by many massage therapists who had given Watson massages.
In addition to the suspension, Watson will also be fined five-million-dollars for violating the league’s policy.
Watson reportedly settled with 23 of the women who brought allegations against him in recent months.
Deshaun Watson, who has not played NFL football in 2 years already, will be eligible to return during Week 13 of the 2022 season, ironically, when his new team, the Browns, go against his old team, the Houston Texans on December 4th 2022, in Houston.
