The NFL has not acted in their pursuit of potentially suspending Houston Texans star quarterback Deshaun Watson. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell was asked about the situation during the league’s fall meetings on Tuesday.

Watson has been benched this season by the team. While he has not received a snap — and may not for the entire season — he’s still getting paid by the Texans. His entire salary.

Twenty two (22) women have accused Watson of sexual misconduct. At this time, Watson has not been legally charged by the authorities, who are still investigating the matter.

Previously, when there was a serious legal matter pending, Goodell would put the player on the Commissioner’s list. However, that has not happened with Watson. And may not happen.

“League doesn’t have access to all the information involved in legal cases, and the league is trying not to interfere,” The Athletic’s Lindsay Jones said on Twitter. “Says they don’t have (the) information necessary for him to make a decision.

There has been some speculation that Watson would be traded before the league’s upcoming No. 2nd trade deadline. It is going to be tough to trade him, as the team would want to know about a potential suspension if there (is) one for him.

Right now, that’s going to be tough since the league allegedly does not have enough to make a decision. The Miami Dolphins, who already have a young quarterback in Tua Tagovailoa, is allegedly the top team interested in Watson, according to the media reports that are circulating on the internet.
