The NFL rescinded the decision immediately and wants Watson to face a full-season ban and a substantial fine.
Watson is ready to accept a sentence that is worse than the one he previously received, but less severe than what the NFL desires.
Some fans believe a resolution between the NFL and Watson's camp is imminent.
"Payment is forthcoming. NFL would be foolish to challenge the NFLPA in court in light of the threats made "a fan stated.
One fan stated, "This is essentially the best-case situation right now, and it's unlikely to occur."
The league seeks a minimum suspension of 17 games, a large fine over $5 million.
Will Watson's suspension exceed six games?
