Cleveland Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson suspended for six games for sexual misconduct allegations

Cleveland Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson's suspension decision is expected to come Monday. Watson is pictured here on May 25 in Berea, Ohio.

Cleveland Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson has been suspended for six games without pay for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy for his "predatory conduct" in private meetings with massage therapists, according to a ruling by a judge jointly appointed by the NFL and the NFL Players Association.

"Although this is the most significant punishment ever imposed on an NFL player for allegations of non-violent sexual conduct, Mr. Watson's pattern of conduct is more egregious than any before reviewed by the NFL," former federal judge Sue L. Robinson wrote in the 16-page ruling.
