Judge Sue L. Robinson ruled that Deshan Watson would undergo a six-match suspension for violating the NFL's individual dealing policies.
With Watson only $345,000 suspended from his new contract worth $230 million, he would only lose one AFC North fight.
The quarterback can now make his Cleveland Browns debut against the Baltimore Ravens in week 7.
According to ESPN Jamieson Hensley, head coach Ravens John Harbaugh was reluctant to share his full view of the situation.
However, he said his organization had developed a "zero tolerance" policy of allegations of violence against women since Ray Rice was released in 2014.
“I respect that [owner] Steve Bisciotti and [President] Dick Cass were made here almost 10 years ago,” Harbaugh said.
"Basically, what we decided was that we were kind of zero tolerance.
We have moved away from certain situations. I'm glad we have that policy. ,
Fans aren't enough to buy what Harbaugh claims.
One of the most famous players, midfielder Ray Lewis, was charged with double homicide in 2000.
He confessed to obstructing justice by giving misleading information to the police.
The Ravens installed Lewis in their Ring of Honor in 2013.
Other fans noted that the Ravens only acted on Rice when TMZ released a video that ran back to attack her fiancé.
The Baltimore front office reportedly rejected Harbaugh's request to cut the rice faster.
Former midfielder Ravens Terrell Suggs also faced multiple allegations of domestic violence.
Unfortunately, there may not be many (if any) NFL teams with a strong track record in supporting the women of their players who have been accused of violence or sexual violations.
