Deshaun Watson and the Cleveland Browns won't have to wait much longer to find out if the star quarterback will be disciplined by the NFL and how long a suspension could last. 

According to Rusty Hardin, Watson's lawyer, they'll know well before the start of training camp for the 2022 season whether or not Watson will be punished for the 22 civil lawsuits filed against him for sexual misconduct. 

"We should know what their position is initially sometime in June, and then everybody will figure out if there’s going to be a hearing about it or can people work things out, or whatever,” Hardin told Cleveland.com's Mary Kay Cabot on Friday evening. “The only thing that’s certain is that they want to try to get everything done this summer — and earlier than later in the summer. Past that, we don’t really have any firm dates or possibilities.”
