The NFL is on the clock.

Twenty-two separate lawsuits accusing sexual misconduct or harassment have now been filed towards Watson, whereas the Houston police division has opened a felony investigation. Commissioner Roger Goodell must be weighing his choices along with his internal circle.
For a reference level, again in 2010 Goodell suspended Ben Roethlisberger 4 video games for violating the NFL’s private conduct coverage. However that was 2010 and that was one accuser. Totally different time, completely different circumstances.

I feel they may put him on an exempt listing till they get extra info.”
The exempt listing is for gamers in uncommon circumstances. Solely the commissioner can put a participant on the listing and the commissioner is answerable for eradicating the participant from the listing.
Watson’s case does fall underneath “uncommon.” He has obtained assist from 18 therapeutic massage therapists who vouched for him as an expert shopper. Watson’s lawyer, Rusty Hardin, launched statements from all of these therapists making an attempt to construct Watson’s case publicly.
Nonetheless, the sheer numbers don’t appear regular for an expert athlete who invests of their physique.
“Most athletes that I’ve coated are so into their routine that if they’ve a therapeutic massage therapist who works for them they stick to one possibly two therapeutic massage therapists,” Holley stated. “If I’m simply doing primary math, I’m wherever for 38 to 40 therapeutic massage therapists. That will get your consideration.”
