BetOnline pulled futures odds on the Cleveland Browns once again on news that Deshaun Watson's suspension has been increased from 6 games to 11.

By 2:22 pm ET, these odds were updated and reflected the drastic change.  Here are the Browns' movements:

Super Bowl: 25-1 to 45-1

AFC: 11-1 to 20-1

AFC North: +275 to +475

He will also be required to pay a $5 million fine for multiple violations of the league’s personal conduct policy.  It is the largest fine ever levied against an NFL player.

In a statement through the Browns, Watson said "I apologize once again for any pain this situation has caused."

Watson also spoke to the media on Thursday.

“I’ve always been able to stand on my innocence, and always said I never assaulted or disrespected anyone,” Watson said, “but at the same point I have to continue to push forward with my life and career.

“(I apologized) for everybody that was affected by this situation. There were a lot of people that were triggered.”
