Browns hang in limbo while QB Deshaun Watson’s story shifts again

When owners Dee and Jimmy Haslam returned from Houston in March to sign Deshawn Watson, the Browns’ long search for a franchise quarterback — a 20-year fruitless journey — seemed over. The NFL’s decision to appeal Watson’s six-game suspension, handed down by independent mediator Sue L. Robinson, who ruled that he violated the course of action, has left the Browns in limbo as they head into the 2022 season. There is now the possibility of considering other QB options. Just a few days ago, the Browns traded his Mayfield to the Carolina last month, with his 32 quarterback starts, the most in the league since the 1999 expansion comeback, and the former No. 1 overall pick and his four-year starter Baker. was ready to win Minus his Watson for less than his $100. half this season.
