The NFL has set Tuesday as the date for Deshaun Watson's disciplinary hearing.

ESPN said that Cleveland Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson will have a hearing with the NFL starting on Tuesday.

Dozens of massage therapists have accused Watson of sexual misconduct. His hearing will be in front of Sue L. Robinson, who is a disciplinary officer for both the NFL and the NFL Players Association.

The three-time Pro Bowler has been sued in civil court 24 times, and 20 of them have been settled.

ESPN said that the NFL is likely to try to give Watson a "long" suspension. Watson will be defended by the NFLPA.

The league hopes to make a decision on the case before teams start training camps in late July.

Watson, who was traded from the Houston Texans in March, will have the chance to appeal when or if he is punished.

After the trade, Watson signed a fully guaranteed, five-year, $230 million contract with Cleveland.

Robinson was on Delaware's district court for more than 25 years, but he never ruled on a case involving an NFL player.
