Cleveland Browns schedule suggests the university is wary of discussing Watson

The release of the Cleveland Browns 2022 schedule illustrates the league’s lack of respite with ongoing quarterback lawsuits Deshaun Watson. A minimum number of prime-time games with no fewer than 13 games in the 1 hour time slot allows the NFL to limit the amount of time network partners will have to discuss Watson’s position.

Yes, the NFL has the ability to show off games and depending on how the Browns perform as well as how fans interact with Watson, network partners may feel better about putting the Browns in a prime time slot later in the season. However, given the subject matter and the potential to alienate viewers, this seems unlikely from here.
