Judge Sue Robinson’s verdict on Deshaun Watson is in and the Browns have reason to celebrate » FirstSportz
Deshaun Watson was signed by the Cleveland Browns preseason after they lost patience with Baker Mayfield. However, problems for the Browns continued to mount as Deshaun’s legal troubles have yet to be resolved. Deshaun has been accused by several women of molestation and sexual harassment, and since the allegations were made we’ve seen a number of twists and turns in the high-profile case.
The NFL was reportedly initially inclined to severely punish Deshaun Watson for his involvement in the sexual harassment cases as fans appeared angry at the QB’s behavior. In fact, it was reported a while back by NFL insider Charles Robinson that the NFL has the option of either following Sue Robinson’s decision to finally punish Deshaun or seeking a one-year suspension if the league isn’t happy with Robinson’s call .

6-game ban for Deshaun Watson
As speculation from the NFL grew over a one-year suspension, it was reported that if that were the case, Deshaun and his team would join the NFLPA in suing the league, and shortly thereafter NFL insider Mark Florio reported that Deshaun could only get a 2- 8 games to face.
After that, it was reported that the NFL had softened its stance and is willing to scrap the idea of a one-year suspension. “Interesting that the league no longer insisted on an indefinite suspension with the right to be reinstated after a certain number of games. But the hefty fine was the compromise, and Watson/NFLPA was reluctant to‘ NFL insider Dan Graziano tweeted.
Judge Sue Robinson has finally delivered her verdict on the case. She has suggested Watson be suspended for 6 games next season. NFL insider Ian Rapoport reported that there was no word from the NFL on the ruling, but the NFLPA had already clarified its stance that it will go along with what Judge Robinson is proposing.
Now the NFL is in a difficult situation. They could be criticized by the fans who want Watson to be punished for a longer period of time if they follow Sue’s decision, and on the other hand, if they increase the number of games Watson would be banned from, the NFLPA would be willing to do that against the give the league full throttle.
The Browns would definitely breathe a sigh of relief now that their main QB received a pretty light penalty. It will be interesting to see what happens next.
