Roger Goodell Seeks Tougher Penalty For Deshaun Watson 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Tue Aug 9, 2022 10:14 pm

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said Tuesday the league seeks a tougher penalty for Deshaun Watson because the quarterback\'s actions were \"egregious\'\' and \"predatory behavior.\'\'

Last week, the NFL formally appealed Watson\'s six-game suspension, which was handed down by the NFL\'s disciplinary officer Sue. L Robinson earlier this month. At a league meeting called to formally approve the Denver Broncos\' new ownership group Tuesday, Goodell was asked why the NFL appealed Robinson\'s decision and was seeking a suspension of at least a year for the Cleveland Browns quarterback.

\"We\'ve seen the evidence, she was very clear about the evidence, she reinforced the evidence,\'\' Goodell said. \"There were multiple violations that were egregious and it was predatory behavior.\'\'
