Deshaun Watson’s camp isn’t taking new suspension well

Deshaun Watson is reportedly frustrated with the suspension that is now finalized.

But he will accept it.

The star Browns quarterback has been banned 11 games and docked $5 million “for violations of the NFL’s Personal Conduct Policy,” the league said in a statement Thursday.

Originally, retired federal judge Sue Robinson handed down a six-game suspension, which commissioner Roger Goodell appealed. The NFL and NFL Players Association reached a settlement concerning a player who has faced dozens of sexual misconduct allegations.

Publicly, Watson said he is “grateful” the punishment appears to be final and takes “accountability” for “decisions” that he did not explain.
