On Wednesday, the NFL announced that they would be appealing Cleveland Brown quarterback Deshaun Watson’s six-game suspension for a stricter penalty.
According to reports, players have been notified that the NFL is appealing. The league has three days from the decision to appeal.
“The NFL notified the NFLPA that it will appeal Judge Robinson’s disciplinary decision and filed its brief this afternoon. Commissioner Roger Goodell will determine who will hear the appeal,” the league said.
The league’s decision to appeal on Wednesday was praised by Tony Buzbee, an attorney defending the two dozen massage therapists who have accused Watson of misconduct.
“Bravo to the NFL. It’s never too late to do the right thing,” he said.
