NFL disciplinary officer Sue L. Robinson is expected to issue a decision Monday on whether Cleveland Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson violated the league's personal conduct policy.  That decision came out early morning with Watson suspended for six games this season.

Watson had been accused of sexual misconduct involving various women.

The findings were likely to dramatically affect the Browns odds for 2022.

"In advance of Judge Robinson's decision, we wanted to reiterate the facts of this proceeding,'' the union said in a statement. "First, we have fully cooperated with every NFL inquiry and provided the NFL with the most comprehensive set of information for any personal conduct policy investigation. A former Federal Judge -- appointed jointly by the NFLPA and NFL -- held a full and fair hearing, has read thousands of pages of investigative documents and reviewed arguments from both sides impartially. Every player, owner, business partner and stakeholder deserves to know that our process is legitimate and will not be tarnished based on the whims of the League office. This is why, regardless of her decision, Deshaun and the NFLPA will stand by her ruling and we call on the NFL to do the same.''

The league and Watson's side did engage in further settlement talks in recent days, sources told ESPN's Dan Graziano, but neither side ever felt they were close to an agreement.
