Skip and Shannon have strong reactions to latest report about Watson's punishment
Skip Bayless and Shannon Sharpe react to Deshaun Watson settling 20 of the 24 lawsuits against him on Tuesday. Both Skip and Shannon believe settling these cases was the right move for Watson, but league VP of communications Brian McCarthy has stated that settling the cases will have no impact on punishment.
Finally, the guys react to an article in USA Todayreporting that the NFL will seek a full year suspension.
"Three people with knowledge of the situation told USA TODAY Sports that they expect the NFL will push for a one-year suspension. The people spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak on behalf of the NFL."
Both Skip and Shannon conclude that anything less than one year seems pretty unlikely at this point, but this could come with some complications for commissioner Roger Goodel. Especially when an appeal takes place, which seems like the favorite at this point because one side is not going to be happy with the decision.
