The multiple new lawsuits may be weighing on Deshaun Watson.
Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson was struggling a little bit during practice on Tuesday.
Watson threw another interception to Grant Delpit while trying to find Amari Cooper in the back of the end zone.
Watson talked to the media at minicamp on Tuesday amid two more civil lawsuits being filed against him, with reportedly another two on the way. Right now, Watson is facing 24 civil lawsuits, but it will soon be 26 as reported on Monday.
The New York Times reported last week that Watson booked 66 massage therapists over a 17-month period.
Watson again reiterated to reporters he never “forced” or “assaulted” anyone.
“I’ve never forced anyone. I’ve never assaulted anyone. I’ve been saying it from the beginning and I’m going to continue to say it,” Watson said, via the Cleveland Plain-Dealer. “I understand these allegations are very serious. … I’m focused on clearing my name.”
A massage therapist in the latest suit said Watson got an erection in one of their sessions as he encouraged her to touch his penis. The lawsuit said Watson allegedly began to masturbate and ejaculated with some of his ejaculate getting on the accuser’s face and chest.
Watson would then pay the therapist and didn’t apologize, the lawsuit said. She would then “quit massage therapy” after the incident with the quarterback, according to the suit.
