As Judge Sue L. Robinson continues to craft a ruling regarding whether and to what extent Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson will be suspended to start the 2022 season, Watson has shown up for his first training camp in Cleveland.

Via Jake Trotter of ESPN.com, Watson reported on Friday, along with the team’s other quarterbacks and rookies.

Judge Robinson received written submissions from the NFL and the NFL Players Association on July 12. She could issue a ruing, in theory, at any time.

Unless she decides that no discipline should be imposed on Watson, either side will have the right to appeal the outcome to Commissioner Roger Goodell or his designee. Presumably, a final decision will be reached before Week One.

  1. He may be creepy & sleazy, but he has a right to go to work and earn his unwarranted salary.

  2. If he is smart he will ask Bob Kraft for his list of “safe” massage spas in each NFL city

  3. Surprising. This should have been done by now. I don’t pity the Browns or this freak show QB, but fair is fair–make a decision.

  4. As he should. Unlike three other cases, there were no complaints of sexual assault (Ben), violence (Rice) or charges (Kraft)

  5. “Charges” are not indicative of a crime. The charges against Mr. Kraft were dropped.

  6. Stop comparing this to what Kraft did. Kraft when to a prostitute, essentially. Though illegal, both parties were expecting the behavior of the other.

    In Watsons case, he used coercion either implied or direct to force sex acts from women who did not begin the transaction expecting it.

    Kraft did something naughty. Watson is a predator.

    You realize the women at Kraft’s massage place were illegally being held against their will and forced to do those things right? As for Watson, no there was no force, no assault, nothing. Even the NFL said there was no force and they want him gone. So where is your proof that Watson did anything remotely illegal beyond indecent exposure? He didn’t that’s why these cases have gone nowhere and a bunch of them settled. IF you don’t think what Kraft was involved in was worse, you obviously have no clue what’s even going on with the 2.

  8. I don’t understand how people don’t see this isn’t the same as Robert Kraft, he went to a place where both parties know the deal. Watson gets off on if he can lead it into ‘special’ massage and sometimes just takes it there on his own accord. Watson doesn’t want safe he likes the hunt like a predator.

  9. In Watsons case, he used coercion either implied or direct to force sex acts from women who did not begin the transaction expecting it.

    In the four strongest cases Buzbee could muster, there was no evidence of force or coercion.
    Buzbee did a great job of painting Watson to be a monster

  10. “Charges” are not indicative of a crime. The charges against Mr. Kraft were dropped.

    ==============

    True.

    Though, the reason the chargers were dropped because the camera that caught him on tape doing the illegal activity was ruled to be illegal itself.

    Watson himself wasn’t even indicted on charges.

    Stop with the lying. None of the women claimed Watson forced them to do anything. At worst he asked them for sex and they declined.

  12. Yeah, if you have a 230,000,000 contract, it’s best you show up for work.

  13. What is the NFL doing. Even if he’s completely innocent, until all the cases are settled &
    a ruling is made about a suspension, the NFL has to at least pretend they care about these women. At least pretend it’s not all about money and tv ratings.

  14. Any way you look at it, this deviant behavior is enough to get kicked out of a supposed league that emphasizes ones character.

  15. “Any way you look at it, this deviant behavior is enough to get kicked out of a supposed league that emphasizes ones character.”
    Like Jones and Kraft and Ross?

  16. Can he still play football? Almost 2 yrs removed from the game. Without a suspension. I hope he is at least studying some sort of play book. Not his black book.

  17. I don’t know if this is good news….he’s going to practice a lot and then he’s going to have some very sore muscles. What’s he going to do??!??!!

  18. As milk toast as Kirk Cousins is, so glad the Vikings didn’t decide to try and pursue Watson. The league cannot in any shape or form want the Browns to succeed with Watson at the helm. Can you imagine a Super Bowl with Watson the center of attention? What a clown show that would be.

  19. Although Watson hasn’t addressed his psychological issues nor has the boys will be boys NFL,as a fan I find it disconcerting that this particular issue concerning watsons predator behavior hasn’t been mentioned.

  20. I guess Deep Tissue massage specialists have to be flown in against their will
