BREAKING NEWS - The NFL said Wednesday it is appealing a decision by a former federal judge to sit Cleveland Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson without pay for just six games. The league is pushing for a full-season suspension instead.
On Monday, Watson was suspended for six games this season for violating the NFL''s personal conduct policy in private meetings with massage therapists while he was with the Houston Texans. The NFL had asked Sue L. Robinson, the former judge hired by the NFL and its players union to decide on Watson''s punishment, for a suspension covering the 17-game regular season and the playoffs. No player accused of non-violent sexual misconduct, as Watson has been, has received a suspension longer than six games, Robinson said in her 16-page ruling issued Monday.
