The NFL is reportedly gearing up to slam Deshaun Watson with a massive suspension.

If the NFL actually hits Watson with an indefinite suspension, then it’s clear that the league feels he did something very wrong. A punishment of that nature isn’t handed out unless the league has no doubt the player deserves it.
Now, that doesn’t mean Watson did anything wrong in the eyes of the law. Remember, on multiple occasions, the authorities chose not to pursue charges.

All of the allegations are civil, but we all know Roger Goodell doesn’t have to wait for any court decision to punish a player. If he feels a player did something wrong, he can drop the hammer.
If the Wall Street Journal report is accurate, it sounds like that’s exactly what Goodell intends to do with Watson.
