Deshaun Watson and NFL Reach Settlement

The NFL and NFLPA have agreed to a settlement on discipline for Cleveland Brown's quarterback Deshaun Watson, per Ian Rapoport. 

Watson will serve an 11-game suspension and pay a $5-million fine for violating the league's personal conduct policy. The fine will go to charity. The deal is not yet signed but it is agreed to. 

Watson will also undergo a treatment program. He will return vs the Houston Texans, his former team, in Houston.

Earlier this week, reports came out that Watson and his camp had become increasingly open to a settlement because of a belief that NFL designee Peter Harvey could "drop the hammer"on Watson in the league's appeal of judge Susan Robinson's ruling of a six-game suspension. The two sides have now worked out the settlement. 

The long ordeal and speculation of what will happen to Deshaun Watson has now, finally, come to a resolution.
