Watson team reportedly to use Ben Roethlisberger case in defense

This isn't exactly surprising.

Cleveland Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson was officially suspended earlier this week for a total of six games for his multiple allegations of sexual misconduct during massage sessions. And while the NFLPA put out a statement shortly before the ruling indicating that they would be abiding by the decision without an appeal, the NFL doesn't feel the same way. They announced their intentions to appeal the suspension, and are reportedly going to be aiming to see the controversial QB banned for at least a full year. 

But as expected, the Watson camp isn't expected to take this lightly. In fact, reports have surfaced indicating that they'll be using the 2010 suspension of former Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger as part of their defense. 

As you may remember, Roethlisberger was suspended for six games (later reduced to four) in 2010 after allegedly sexually assaulting a 20-year-old college student in a Georgia nightclub.
