The ongoing investigation by the NFL into Cleveland Browns new quarterback Deshaun Watson is set to reach a new chapter. According to ESPN's Ed Werder, Watson began meeting with investigators on Tuesday as a part of the league's investigation into accusations of sexual misconduct from 22 women.

CBS Sports' Josina Anderson reported on Monday that Watson would meet with league investigators this week. The NFL declined to comment on the meeting amid reports surfacing Monday morning saying that their "review is active and ongoing".

NFL Reporter Albert Breer of TheMMQB and NBC Sports speculates that the league could be entering the final stages of their investigation when they meet with Watson.

While Watson has not been criminally charged in the matter, with two grand juries declining to indict him, he still faces civil lawsuits regarding the allegations, with the league conducting its own investigation. With the civil cases unlikely to be heard in court any time soon, it's unclear whether the league will commit to disciplinary action for the 2022 season or wait to suspend Watson until the 2023 season after the cases have reached a conclusion.
