The NFL is looking to hand down an indefinite suspension lasting no less than one year under the league’s personal-conduct policy to Cleveland Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson, per Andrew Beaton of the Wall Street Journal.
Multiple women have accused Watson of sexual assault or misconduct during massage sessions that occurred in 2020 and 2021. Twenty of the 24 civil lawsuits brought against the quarterback have been settled, though as of June 13, two more were being processed.
Per Jenny Vrentas of the New York Times, Watson met with at least 66 women for massage appointments over a period of 17 months from 2019 to 2021.
The NYT report stated that the Houston Texans, Watson’s old team, provided him with hotel memberships and non-disclosure agreements to use for some of the appointments.
