The Cleveland Browns switched to quarterback Deshaun Watson knowing they may not have him for an entire season in 2022. After all, Watson could still be suspended by the NFL for several games if it finds he violated its personal behavior policy. .
As you probably know, he was accused of sexual misconduct by more than 20 massage therapists. While a grand jury did not find enough evidence to take the case to court, the NFL will come up with its own verdict.
So it’s easy to see why everyone thinks Watson will miss some time.

But not so fast, said longtime Brown journalist Tony Grossi. Watson may be ready, at least when it’s going to be available all next season.
“Originally, I thought a suspension was inevitable,” Grossi wrote in response to the tab’s email. “Now there is a possibility that a suspension could be postponed until 2023 until the 22 civil cases against Watson are adjudicated or settled.”
When it became known that Watson was being made available by the Houston Texans, he became the most persecuted QB in the offseason. Early reports suggested he told the Browns they were out of the game. Then suddenly they were not.
Again, everyone approached a potential Watson trade, as if he would be put on the sidelines of the league in no less than four games, probably more. He is so good that no one cared.
