Former NFL tight end Ben Watson has recalled some troubling details from his combine interview with the Cleveland Browns in 2004.
Watson played for the Browns years later, joining the team as a free agent in 2010. But he ended up being drafted by the New England Patriots at No.32 overall. He received a championship ring at the end of his rookie season despite limited participation.
The former TE played in the Pats’ season opener, receiving two passes. He was inactive the following week and spent the rest of the campaign on the injured reserve.
Watson, who retired in 2018 before returning and then retiring again in 2020, has revealed via Twitter that the Browns treated him to an interview similar to what you’d see in mobster movies as he was seated on a chair in the middle of a dark room with a spotlight on him while team management stood in the shadows.

He claimed he was asked whether he had ever smoked marijuana and when he said no, the interviewer grabbed his wrist and asked him again louder.
A Twitter user pointed out to Dov Kleiman, who posted a photo of the tweet, that the disturbing interview did little to prevent Watson from joining the Browns as a free agent in 2010. But Ben, in turn, pointed out that the front office had changed by then.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
