NFL appealing Deshaun Watson's 6-game suspension, league says

The NFL said Wednesday it is appealing Cleveland Brown’s quarterback’s Deshaun Watson’s six-game suspension imposed earlier this week.

The NFL will appeal Cleveland Brown quarterback Deshaun Watson’s six-game suspension and seek a tougher penalty for violating its personal conduct policy for “egregious acts” of “sexualized contact” with massage therapists, the league said Wednesday.

The NFL said in a statement it has notified the players’ union it is appealing. It had three days from the ruling to appeal, the league said in the statement.

Retired Judge Sue L. Robinson presided over Watson’s case and issued the suspension Monday.

“The NFL notified the NFLPA that it will appeal Judge Robinson’s disciplinary decision and filed its brief this afternoon. Commissioner Roger Goodell will determine who will hear the appeal,” the league said.
