The NFL is finally going to decide how many games Deshaun Watson will be forced to sit out after being accused of sexual misconduct by nearly two dozen women.

On Monday, NFL disciplinary officer Judge Sue L. Robinson will reportedly announce her decision on the Watson case.

The NFLPA has already issued a statement saying they will not appeal Robinson’s decision.

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has the power to overrule Robinson’s decision, and it’s unclear if he will do so.

According to ESPN’s Dan Graziano, the NFL has been negotiating with Watson’s team about a possible settlement. Apparently the NFL offered Watson a 12-game suspension with an $8 million fine but he declined their offer.
