Watson has been permitted to participate, as normal with all football events for the past 15 months.

Going into the Madden 23 Beta, I expected that only one or two teams could be played .

The behavior around Watson isn't normal. This is not  Madden 23 coins how investigations have been conducted previously. Calvin Ridley was suspended for the entire season for betting $1.500 during a 4 month period. The league's investigation into domestic violence allegations on Greg Hardy lasted two months in 2015. The Ray Rice scandal lasted seven months.

Three major Madden NFL 23 investigations combined took less time than has been devoted to Watson.

If that was the case, then the exempt list should have been activated. Again, from the Madden NFL 23's own policies:
