NFL hits Deshaun Watson with 11-game ban and $5m fine after sexual misconduct claims

On Thursday, Goodell said he was satisfied Watson could return to the NFL after serving his suspension.

The 26-year-old is one of the most talented players in the league, and several teams were interested in trading for him despite the serious allegations against him. Watson eventually joined the Browns, where he signed a fully guaranteed five-year, $230m contract. In May, two of the women who accused the quarterback of sexual misconduct said they were offended by the sums involved in his contract.

Watson struggled in his preseason game against the Jaguars completing just one of five passes for seven yards. He was also subjected to hostile chants from Jaguars fans throughout his appearance. The Browns expect back-up quarterback Jacoby Brissett to stand in for Watson during his suspension.
