At least 24 women filed lawsuits against Deshaun Watson, alleging sexual misconduct. The women are massage therapists who accused the NFL quarterback of sexualizing their sessions with him in various unwanted ways—trying to bring his genitals into contact with the therapists and masturbating until he ejaculated during a massage, for example. A grand jury in Texas, where Watson used to play for the Houston Texans, declined to bring charges against him in March. The Cleveland Browns traded for him that month and gave him a fully guaranteed $230 million contract. Watson had settled all but one of the lawsuits by the start of this week. And on Monday, the last shoe dropped, or maybe it is more accurate to say that it failed to drop: An arbitrator suspended Watson for just six games of the 2022 season. The NFL is widely reported to have wanted at least a yearlong, indefinite suspension. Instead, Watson will be in the lineup by mid-October. It will basically be a paid vacation, thanks to the ghoulish mastery of Watson's reps and the Browns' front office. In the first year of Watson's contract, almost all of the money is in the form of a signing bonus and thus not subject to forfeiture like a typical NFL game check. He'll lose a few hundred thousand dollars, pending an NFL appeal that may or may not come. Even if the league pushes back and gets more games, Watson will soon be free and clear with almost all of his contract money. - ALEX KIRSHNER.

Kyle Brandt Explains How To Get A Wing To The NFL Draft

Kyle Brandt promised that he wasn't taking the honor of announcing one of the Bills' draft picks for granted. Here's the length he went to to make it great. Last week it was announced that Kyle Brandt from the NFL Network would be announcing the 89th pick of the 2022 NFL Draft for the Buffalo Bills. Immediately there were some fans who were put off. Not because he's not a fan, but more because he hasn't always been as loud about being a fan as he is now that they're good. The main problem that people had was that there were people who had been a fan for longer. People that had been through the really crappy years that maybe would have been a better choice.
