After the NFL came under fire for suspending Ray Rice for just two games after the horrid assault of his wife in a Las Vegas elevator in 2014, commissioner Roger Goodell admitted he mishandled the situation and vowed to do better. He’s about to be put to the test.
Former Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson is facing 24 civil lawsuits accusing him of sexual misconduct during massage sessions. Grand juries in both Harris and Brazoria counties declined to file criminal charges against Watson, who has denied any wrongdoing. However, the NFL has conducted its own investigation and the absence of criminal charges has never stopped leagues from suspending their players.
