Reports: Deshaun Watson's NFL hearing concludes without a settlement; decision pending

After three days, Deshaun Watson's NFL disciplinary hearing concluded on Thursday, according to multiple media reports.

Independent hearing officer Sue L. Robinson requested post-hearing briefs that are due the week of July 11th, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. A decision on Watson's discipline isn't expected until after the briefs are filed.

Robinson is expected to "take her time," per ESPN's Dan Graziano.'s Mary Kay Cabot reported last week that a decision is expected prior to the start of training camp on July 27.

The NFL and NFLPA jointly appointed Robinson to oversee the hearing to determine what, if any punishment Watson meets as he enters his first season as Cleveland Browns quarterback.
