Schefter reported just moments ago that Watson has been suspended for six games.
Now, it will be interesting to see if NFL commissioner Roger Goodell agrees to this suspension.

Deshaun Watson learns of suspension for 2022 NFL season
Watson, who is 26, was accused by 25 women (one dropped the charge) of sexual assault/inappropriate conduct during massage sessions. He had already settled with 20 of the 24 women and on Sunday, news broke that he had also settled with three of the remaining four women accusing him of sexual assault/inappropriate conduct.
Cleveland Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson will serve a six game suspension for violating the league’s personal conduct policy following accusations of sexual misconduct, disciplinary officer Sue L. Robinson ruled Monday, a source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
The players’ union, in a statement Sunday night, made it clear that it will “stand by” Robinson’s ruling and urged the NFL to do the same.
Either side would have three days to submit an appeal in writing. In that case, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell or his designee “will issue a written decision that will constitute full, final and complete disposition of the dispute,” per terms of Article 46 in the CBA.
Nation, if it holds up, is 6 games an appropriate suspension for Deshaun Watson?
