·3 min read

On the eve of Deshaun Watson's hearing with the NFL over his allegations of sexual misconduct, the NFL informed Watson, the NFL Player's Association and Sue L. Robinson, the former federal judge who serves as the disciplinary officer, that it is recommending that the Browns' new quarterback serve an indefinite suspension of at least a year.

Watson is accused of sexual misconduct by more than two dozen women and last week settled 24 civil lawsuits. Earlier on Monday, more lawsuits were filed against the Houston Texans, the team Watson played for while the allegations occurred.

Ever since the Cleveland Browns traded for Watson in March, a suspension was believed to be imminent in 2022 but there were questions on the length of the punishment as two grand juries in Texas failed to press charges.

It's now clear that the NFL will seek an entire season for Watson's punishment.
