On Monday, Judge Sue L. Robinson announced a six-game suspension for Cleveland Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson with the National Football League having three days to appeal the decision.
According to a report, the expectation is that Roger Goodell and the NFL will indeed appeal Watson’s six-game suspension. Goodell reportedly would like to see the NFL quarterback’s suspension increase significantly.
“Multiple league sources and legal experts predict that the NFL will exercise its right to file an appeal within three days and that NFL commissioner Roger Goodell will significantly increase the punishment levied against the three-time Pro Bowl passer that included no fine,” said Aaron Wilson of Pro Football Network.
Whatever Goodell decides to do, he has until Thursday to file an appeal.
