According to Cleveland.com’s Mary Kay Cabot, the Browns may consider trading Jimmy G if the NFL increases Watson’s suspension from six-games.

The Browns will consider acquiring Jimmy Garoppolo if Deshaun Watson’s six-game suspension significantly increases upon appeal, league sources tell cleveland.com.
The Browns are awaiting the ruling of Peter C. Harvey, the designee of NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, who confirmed Tuesday that the league is seeking a minimum year-long ban for Watson with the chance to apply for reinstatement after the season.
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has pushed for Watson to get a season-long suspension due to Watson committing multiple “egregious” violations of the personal conduct policy.
“We’ve seen the evidence, she was very clear about the evidence, she reinforced the evidence,’’ “There were multiple violations that were egregious and it was predatory behavior. Those are things that we always felt were important for us to address in a way that’s responsible.”
Former New Jersey Attorney General Peter Harvey is tasked with determining the length of Watson’s suspension but there’s no timeline on when he will announce his decision.
