Deshaun Watson been in the news lately for all the wrong reasons. He was accused of molestation and sexual harassment by several women some time ago, and since then, Deshaun and his new team, the Cleveland Browns, have been criticized by fans around the world.
The NFL reportedly tended to severely punish Deshaun Watson for his involvement in the sexual harassment cases. 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 .

The NFL reportedly doesn’t want to suspend Deshaun Watson for a full season
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.
As it turns out, the NFL has softened its stance and is poised to scrap the idea of a year-long suspension. Instead, as NFL insider Dan Graziano reported, the league asked Deshaun to accept a hefty fine and a 12-game 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‘ Dan wrote on Twitter.
Without a doubt, the league’s stance has definitely changed a bit after the recent twists in the case. While it used to be portrayed that the league was adamant about banning Deshaun for the entire season, it certainly seems like a far-fetched idea now. Judgment on what will happen to Deshaun is not far off and the Browns would be concerned.
While they may not have to play the entire season without Deshaun, losing him for 8-10 games is a massive loss and could greatly hurt their chances of making it big next season.
