Deshaun Watson was informed of his fate; The controversial quarterback was suspended for 11 games this season after a settlement with the NFL.
The Cleveland Browns star has received a new penalty from the league, saying Watson has agreed to a $5million fine alongside a lengthy suspension. The NFL also stated that the 26-year-old will “promptly undergo a professional behavioral evaluation and follow their treatment program.”
Addressing the settlement, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell stated that Deshaun is “committed to putting in the hard work on himself necessary for his return to the NFL.” This settlement includes following a detailed evaluation and treatment plan, paying a substantial fine, and being suspended for an extended period of time.
Betting on yourself is more egregious than sexual assault, according to NFL: Deshaun Watson suspended for 11 games
This is a gross miscalculation in our opinion as Calvin Ridley has been banned for a full year for betting on himself and his team to win! A sports bet! TO WIN. While that carries a year’s ban, female groping and sexual assault are just a fine and an 11-game ban.
The NFL needs to better time their penalties because they look like complete clowns with this suspension. These two cases might not be far enough apart, but when it comes to punishment, is the sexual assault case getting fewer? I think Deshaun has gone down in a lot of people’s books and his career could go on, but a lot of people have lost respect for him.
