2021 Building Block 1 / Go Texans
What benefit does the NFL and Goodell get out of remaining “quiet”….unless the Texans decided to play or trade him…..”then” and only then he would step in and put him on CEL?@Texansballer74 has part of the explanation. The other part is that Watson has not been placed in a position of actually playing in a game. If that were to change, he would find himself immediately on the CEL. If a trade were even allowed by the League, at the first sign that the receiving team would try to play him, he would immediately find himself on the CEL.
I'm not going to go into all previous issues, but Michael Vick was busted upon a search warrant on April 25, 2007............he was not suspended until August 24, at which time he finally admitted to all of his involvement in the dog fighting business.
Why couldn’t the NFL and Goodell put him on CEL right now? Or for that matter, put him on CEL at the start of the season? Certainly nothing new, information wise, has been presented other than just a bunch of media related posturing which doesn’t confirm anything one way or another.
