NFL appoints former NJ attorney general to hear Deshaun Watson suspension appeal

NFL has appointed former NJ attorney general Peter C Harvey to hear the appeal of Deshaun Watson's six-game suspension.

Harvey was Attorney General of New Jersey and is currently a partner at the Paterson Belknap firm in New York.

Harvey has served as a federal prosecutor and has deep expertise in criminal law.

With the NFL now appealing Watson's six-game suspension, there are chances his punishment could get worse.

Cleveland Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson has been suspended for 6 games for sexual misconduct.

24 women have reportedly accused Watson of sexual misconduct.

This sparked several civil lawsuits in 2021 and Watson settled 20 of the cases against him.

Deshaun Watson is an American professional football player with a net worth of $60 million.
