Former NFL Player Furious With Deshaun Watson Suspension Length

Deshaun Watson, Cleveland Browns

Former NFL players Silas Redd Jr. is furious with the length of Deshaun Watson's suspension. 

Redd, the former Penn State and USC running back, took to Twitter this Monday afternoon to share his reaction to the Watson punishment ruling. 

Redd, who played one season for Washington during his NFL career, was suspended for an entire season for marijuana use. Watson, meanwhile, received only six games, despite being accused of sexual misconduct by 25 women. 

"I got suspended for a whole year from the NFL for weed.. but sexual misconduct gets you 6 games.. make it make sense," said Redd. 

He's right. The Deshaun Watson suspension length is mind boggling. 

Fans have been quick to point out other suspensions this Monday afternoon. Calvin Ridley got a full year for sports betting. Deandre Hopkins got six games for PED violations. 

Watson will make his Browns debut in Week 7.
