The NFL is pushing for the “indefinite removal” of Deshon Watson, according to Wall Street Journalwhich means that Browns’ quarterback could face a significant financial blow if stopped.

Discussions reportedly include the possibility of Watson’s contract with Cleveland being postponed by one year if suspended for the entire season. Shortly after the Harris County Grand Jury returned nine “no” bills on nine criminal complaints against the quarterback, Cleveland traded for Watson and signed a five-year, $ 230 million contract with him. A clause in the contract requires Watson to lose just $ 55,556 for every game he is penalized for this season.
