NFL Statement On Deshaun Watson’s Shoving Referee During Browns Vs Steelers

The NFL released an official statement on Deshaun Watson’s shoving the referee during the Browns vs Steelers Monday night game.

Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson has been under the radar of NFL fans for his expletive behavior during the Monday game against the Steelers.

Watson was caught on camera shoving the referee during the game. For his luck referee didn’t charge him any penalty. But many football fans called out Cleveland QB for his behavior.

According to Pro Football Talk’s reporter Mike Florio’s report, Watson would be evaluated and assessed for his aggressive behavior on Tuesday by the NFL.

To that NFL has released a statement on Watson’s incident with the referee.

The league said in a statement,

“Officials are called upon to maintain order on the field, and sometimes while performing those duties, there is inadvertent contact between players and officials. In this instance, in their judgment, the contact did not rise to the level of a foul.”

In a postgame interview, Watson took full responsibility for the Browns’ loss against the Steelers.

Watson said,

“There’s some plays that we capitalized and we did good, but as far as my part, it’s not good enough. I put that on me. The first play, yeah, we can get into the tactics of receiver running out and putting the ball out, and this, that and the third, but I got to give him a better ball. The forced fumble for a touchdown for them,” 

Watson continued,

“We can say, ‘This guy can do this,’ but I’ve got to protect the ball. We’re not going to put it on anyone else. You put it on me. I can take the full blame, I can take the criticism and I’m going to do that.”

Cleveland Brown’s next face-off with the Titans on this Sunday.
