After Sue Robinson handed down a six-game suspension for quarterback Deshaun Watson, the New England Patriots won’t be facing him this season.
It’s been a nightmare, to say the least, following the Deshaun Watson saga in the media. Sue Robinson, the NFL’s disciplinary officer in charge of this matter, has handed down a six-game suspension for Watson, putting an end to the legal processes. The New England Patriots won’t have to deal with him if this suspension persists or if it is extended.
Though bringing up the football aspect of this seems inappropriate, it is an important development for the on-field scenario.
Depressing to read and hear about Deshaun Watson’s sexual misconduct charges.
Today, NFL and NFLPA-appointed judge Sue Robinson ruled that Watson should be banned for six games in the 2022 season.
We’ll have to wait and see what Commissioner Roger Goodell decides to do with the NFL’s request for a one-year suspension.
Deshaun Watson will miss the Panthers, Jets, Steelers, Falcons, Chargers, and Patriots games as a result of his six-game ban.
October 23rd is the date on which Watson would be able to play against the Ravens.
Watson is unlikely to play in this game because the Patriots are heading to Cleveland.
I don’t believe the Patriots will make a trade for Jimmy Garoppolo, and as a result, the organization may opt to go with the team’s primary backup, Jacoby Brissett.
There is no doubt that Brissett is a capable quarterback who has had some experience in the starting lineup.
So he can play a little bit, but he’s in the fringe starter/high-end backup category.
As a result, the Patriots may be able to go to Cleveland and defeat the Browns now that Deshaun Watson is no longer an issue.
