It’s Wednesday, June 22, 2022 and the Cleveland Browns made headlines again yesterday with news that the quarterback Deshaun Watson has settled 20 of its 24 outstanding civil lawsuits.

Although the most high-profile, it wasn’t the only Browns-related news story of the day.

Here’s the Wednesday edition of Browns Nation news and notes.

1. Browns sign linebacker Dakota Allen

The Browns signed the linebacker dakota allen.

Allen, a seventh-round pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, was a free agent after spending most of the past three seasons with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

He had a brief stint with the Oakland Raiders in 2019 as well where he started in two games.

Allen’s biggest fame might be his appearance in the Netflix series Last chance U.

The premise of the show was to help college players who were dealing with personal issues.

Part of the program helped them get back on their feet playing at a junior college before returning to Division I competition.

Allen is the eighth linebacker on the Browns’ current roster.

He joins Tony Fields II, Willie Harvey Jr., Silas Kelly, Jeremy Owusu-Koramoah, Jacob Phillips, Sione Takitakiand Antoine Walker Jr.

2. Predicting Watson’s potential suspension

Legal Analyst Amy Dash provides an interesting perspective on how Deshaun Watson’s suspension could be determined.

She thinks each of the 24 cases will be assessed separately.

The evidence will be weighed and, if applicable, a period of suspension (defined by a number of games) per case will be determined.

Because the NFL’s chosen referee is a former judge, Dash believes the evidence will be scrutinized very closely.

This means that cases with less evidence or gaps in evidence may not result in suspension time.

Regardless of how this part of the process unfolds, we can expect the NFL Players Association to file an appeal.

As always, stay tuned and happy Wednesday Browns fans!
