The contract was stupid beyond reason WITHOUT the civil suit. Offering it with the civil suit should add the Browns' ownership to the possible ouster along with those in Washington and Miami. The Browns didn't just kill the goose that laid the golden egg, they plucked it, cooked it up, and ate it. The other owners are, more than likely, livid at the Browns for giving that idiotic totally guaranteed amount of money. Insane.

Of course, he will be suspended, probably 8 games, and then the civil suits will go however they go and the NFL will be on to the next scandal.

I think that it's gotten to the point that nothing has been 'lost', but simply nobody really cares anymore except the Browns who put up shop in Stupidville

20 of the 24 women have apparently accepted proposed settlement terms. if the other 4 accept, will this quietly go away allowing watson to play?

Willing to bet the league told him either he settles or he'll be put on the exempt list. Which would still allow him to be suspended in 2023.

This allows for him to either play a few games at the end of the year or not have 2023 impacted.

He will have 2022 impacted, regardless of settling. If he doesn't settle, then yes, it could spill into 2023, because any trial wouldn't happen until after 2022 season.
