On Tuesday afternoon, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell spoke with the media about a multitude of different topics.

The league's commissioner opened by talking about the Buffalo Bills new stadium before launching into a series of concerning topics. He spoke about the investigations into the Miami Dolphins, Washington Commanders and the latest - Cleveland Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson.

During his media availability, Goodell was asked about Watson and a potential suspension for the newest quarterback in the AFC North. He said there is still "no timetable" for a decision.

"Roger Goodell said 'there’s no timetable' on a decision of any potential discipline for Browns’ QB Deshaun Watson," ESPN's Adam Schefter reported on Goodell's comments. "'We will seek to get to the bottom of the facts,' Goodell said."

Earlier this week, NFL insider Ian Rapoport reported the latest on a potential suspension involving Watson.

"Making sure you have all the information before weighing in is something that is really significant," Rapoport told McAfee. "Everyone wants to know right now how long is he going to be suspended. Is it going to be four games, six games, eight games, no games? Those are all basically the possibilities."

It would be shocking to see Watson not receive a suspension given the vast number of allegations against him. However, until the suspension is official, anything is truly possible.
