The NFL is believed to be facing a permanent ban of at least one year, as well as a fine. Sue L. Robinson’s original decision did not provide for a monetary penalty for Watson.

Former New Jersey Attorney General Peter Harvey was selected to hear the appeal by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. Harvey served on the league’s advisory committees and advised the league on the personal conduct policy that was used to suspend Watson.

The policy calls for an expedited decision on the appeal, so Harvey’s decision should be made in the near future and give the Browns clarity on when they can get their big acquisition of the year in the roster.
