Browns’ Deshaun Watson could be suspended until all civil lawsuits settled, report states – News-Herald

The NFL Players’ Association is expecting Deshaun Watson to be hammered with “unprecedented” punishment by the league for violating the NFL’s personal conduct policy, according to a story that appeared at ProFootballTalk.com.

If and when that happens, according to the story, the players’ union is fully prepared to defend the Browns’ quarterback if he is suspended without pay by pointing out how lightly the league responded to questionable behavior by three team owners — Robert Kraft of the New England  Patriots, Daniel Snyder of the Washington Commanders and Jerry Jones of the Dallas Cowboys.

“Ownership and club or league management have traditionally been held to a higher standard and will be subject to more significant discipline when violations of the Personal Conduct Policy occur,” The NFL’s bylaws state.
