The closure fans of the Cleveland Browns, and the team itself, seek with QB Deshaun Watson’s fate will not land in the hands of NFL commissioner Roger Goodell.
While Goodell has the right to hear the appeal, as reported earlier today, he will not do so. The NFL has appealed Judge Sue Robinson’s suspension seeking a greater punishment.
According to the league’s release, their appeal seeks to include evaluation and treatment (counseling), a fine and a longer suspension. Robinson’s punishment only included a six-game suspension and limitations on his massages.
