NFL analyst Mina Kimes is amazed Deshaun Watson was only banned for six games by Judge Sue L. Robinson. The NFL made it clear it was pushing for an indefinite suspension, and when Robinson came back with just six games, that was pushed back in earnest.
Kimes continued NFL Live on August 2, expressing confusion at the verdict.
“You know, when I first saw the six games, I was surprised, it seemed low given the volume, obviously they didn’t consider all the cases just for them, and the seriousness of the allegations.”
“I honestly find her decision completely incoherent and confusing. So she first lays out the allegations, many of which we are aware of. The NFL accuses Watson of going into those sessions with sexual intent, bring the towel couldn’t cover up that he ejaculated on the women. These are details that have been widely reported in the settlements and outside news for a very long time.
As expected, the NFL is appealing Robinson’s decision as it pushes for a season-long suspension.
What does all this mean for Deshaun Watson?
As noted by many reports, the Browns have made it clear that if the NFL successfully appeals and achieves a one-year suspension, they will sue the league.
The NFLPA then has the power to file an injunction keeping the quarterback on the field while the case is heard in federal court. Well this could be a very long time coming which is a fair chance the 26 year old will be playing Week 1 and possibly beyond at the time of writing.
That would be an ideal result for the quarterback given the severity of the circumstances. Playing the starting game means he will have the biggest impact on the Browns’ season.
Many would argue that Cleveland should be a legitimate playoff contender in this case. The combination of the former Texas quarterback with the likes of Amari Cooper, Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt certainly presents them as postseason potentials on paper.
