Interesting, since he and the NFLPA already 'accepted' a 6 game suspension per their comment yesterday. Maybe he serves 6 games and then comes back while the appeal goes on?
Although the other interesting point is that if this appeal goes into 2023, his salary is going to go way up from the $2.7 mil or whatever it is this year. He'll be on the hook for the new salary.
Watson has $46M reasons not to let these suspensions get into 2023. He wants to serve his time this year when the most he could lose is $1.035M for the entire year.
The Browns and Watson are saying now they'd accept 8 games and a $5M fine to be paid by Watson. Wishful thinking imo.
Goodell has the power through the CBA to assess whatever punishment he wants. This is simple, folks.
