The possibility of Deshaun Watson having more than a 6-game suspension has increased. The NFL announced on Wednesday that they are appealing Monday’s initial ruling.

The league had three days to decide if they would appeal Sue L. Robinson’s choice to only ban him for six games. The NFL wants to do it as soon as possible.

The NFL released a statement that the appeal will either be heard by commissioner Roger Goodell or his designee. According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, Goodell or his designee will then “issue a written decision that will constitute final disposition of the dispute and is binding.”

Famed business and legal analyst Andrew Brandt told “TMZ Live” on Tuesday that he expects that if the league appealed the suspension, it would not only increase the ban but would also tag on a “big fine.”

Watson signed a huge contract with the Browns after being traded from the Texans this off season, He has continued to deny any wrongdoing in the case. The situation will be continued to be monitored. It’s a concerning matter that will affect the future behavior of players in the league.
