Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson was suspended six games Monday after being accused by two dozen women in Texas of sexual misconduct during massage treatments in what a disciplinary officer said was behavior “more egregious than any before reviewed by the NFL.”
The punishment handed out by the game’s disciplinary officer, former federal judge Sue L. Robinson, fell well short of what the NFL had asked for: an open-ended suspension of at least a year for violating the league’s personal-conduct policy.
