Earlier this afternoon, the NFL and Cleveland Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson agreed to a disciplinary settlement. 

As part of this agreement, Watson will be suspended for 11 games and receive a $5 million fine for his actions. The football world flocked to social media to react to the news.

That appeared to include Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Calvin Ridley. The star wideout, who is serving a full-season suspension for gambling on the NFL, is looking forward to next season.

"2023 Calvin Ridley!!!!" he said on Twitter.

As for Watson, his suspension will begin on Aug. 30. He'll be eligible to return to the facility and participate in limited activities on Oct. 10.

On Nov. 14, Watson can resume practicing with the rest of the team. Coincidentally, the first game he can suit up for will be against the Houston Texans.

Should Watson have received a longer suspension than Ridley?
