Ravens head coach John Harbaugh was brutally honest when asked about the Deshaun Watson situation.
On Monday, the NFL’s disciplinary officer suspended Watson for six games after he was accused of sexual assault by more than two dozen women.
Judge Sue L. Robinson’s decision says Deshaun Watson’s “pattern of behavior was egregious,” but notes that behavior was “nonviolent sexual conduct” in explaining the decision to suspend him six games, per source.

While speaking to the media, Harbaugh implied that Watson wouldn’t be able to play for the Ravens due to the serious allegations against him.
“I do have a lot of opinions on it. I’m not at liberty to share them at this time. That’s for the league to decide,” Harbaugh said.
Harbaugh added: “I respect what Steve Bisciotti and Dick Cass created here almost ten years ago. Basically, what we decided [was] that we’re kind of zero tolerance. We’ve stayed away from that particular situation. I’m glad we have that policy.”

Watson is surely going to remember Harbaugh’s comments when the Browns play the Ravens two times this season.
