Deshaun Watson case: an agreement between the victims and the Houston Texans

NFL wants one-year suspension for Deshaun Watson

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said on Tuesday the league is seeking a harsher penalty for Deshaun Watson because the Cleveland Browns quarterback’s actions were “flagrant” and he engaged in “predatory behavior.” .

Last week, the NFL formally appealed Watson’s six-game suspension, which was handed down by retired federal judge Sue. L Robinson earlier this month. At a league meeting called to formally approve the Denver Broncos’ new ownership group on Tuesday, Goodell was asked why the NFL had appealed Robinson’s decision and was seeking a suspension of at least one year for Browns quarterback.

“We saw the evidence, she was very clear about the evidence, she reinforced the evidence,” Goodell said. There were multiple flagrant violations and it was predatory behavior. ยป

Last week, the NFL appointed Peter C. Harvey, a former New Jersey attorney general, to hear Watson’s suspension appeal for violating the league’s personal conduct policy. Goodell said Tuesday he didn’t know when Harvey would make a decision.
