Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson and the NFLPA have released a statement regarding the upcoming disciplinary decision relating to allegations of sexual misconduct.
The Browns are about to find out how long Deshaun Watson will be suspended for sexual misconduct.
Multiple reports on Sunday suggested Sue L. Robinson, the impartial arbiter appointed to oversee Watson by the NFL and NFL, will deliver her verdict on Monday morning.
These reports were supported by Watson and the NFLPA issuing a statement on the matter.

“Before Judge Robinson’s decision, we wanted to reaffirm the facts of this action,” the statement read. “First, we have fully cooperated with every NFL inquiry and provided the NFL with the most comprehensive set of information for any personal conduct policy investigation. A former federal judge — appointed jointly by the NFLPA and the NFL — held a full and fair hearing. , read thousands of pages of investigative documents and review arguments on both sides impartially. Every player, owner, business partner and stakeholder deserves to know that our process is legitimate and will not be distorted at the whims of the university office. For this reason, regardless of its decision, Deshaun and the NFLPA will abide by its judgment and call The NFL to do the same.”
That doesn’t sound like a statement for someone expecting to hear bad news from Judge Robinson. Already pressing the NFL to go along with the decision suggests it will lean on the more lenient side of the proposed sanctions.
Reports have indicated that Brown expects a suspension of no more than eight matches.

If the NFLPA and Watson think Judge Robinson will suggest a dozen or more games as a comment, there is no way to make that statement.
