Watson, Browns regroup following season shaped by suspension

BEREA, Ohio (AP) — Deshaun Watson’s abridged first season in Cleveland ended earlier than he wanted. Watson only played in six games after serving an 11-game NFL suspension for sexual misconduct allegations. The Browns went 3-3 with Watson, and the team finished 7-10 overall and missed the playoffs for the second year in a row. There’s already been a major offseason move as coach Kevin Stefanski fired defensive coordinator Joe Woods. The Browns have asked for permission to speak with several candidates, including Pittsburgh assistant Brian Flores, who was Miami’s head coach for three seasons.
