NFL doesn’t yet have enough information about Deshaun Watson lawsuits to make decision, commissioner Roger Goodell says

NEW YORK — The playing status of Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson, one of the hottest topics in the NFL ahead of next Tuesday’s trade deadline, does not sound as if it will be altered any time soon.

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said Tuesday at the league owners meetings that the NFL doesn’t yet have enough information about the 22 civil lawsuits that have been filed against Watson for inappropriate sexual behavior to make a decision on potential discipline, and that the information they do have is not enough to convince the league to place Watson on the commissioner’s exempt list.
