Roger Goodell: NFL doesn’t have enough information to suspend Deshaun Watson

by archysport

If we haven’t seen him on the pitch this season, Deshaun Watson is not officially suspended. Neither the league nor his team. He’s just put aside. And paid.

With the prospect of an exchange looming, the question of its availability arises. Tuesday, during his press briefing, Roger Goodell indicated that the league does not seem ready to crack down.

“The police are investigating, and we do not have access to all the information currently,” said the boss of the league. “We make it a point of honor not to interfere with the investigation and to cooperate with our best to get all the facts. I believe this process is still ongoing. “

Watson is accused of 22 civil sexual assaults, and criminal authorities have also taken up the case. The latest trend seems to be that nothing will be finalized until the end of the 2021 season.

The league could place Watson on the Commissioner Exempt List, a reserve where players are put aside, but still paid. But for now, she’s waiting.

Very concretely, this means that any team can play Watson if he is in their squad.
