It seems inevitable that Deshaun Watson will be suspended for a few games due to his alleged behavior with multiple women. To make matters worse, a new lawsuit has been filed against the Browns quarterback, making it the 23rd active civil filing.
The lawsuit describes that “in an effort to intimidate her,” one of Watson’s lawyers said to the plaintiff “that they were going to fight the cases to the fullest extent. She also insisted that us Black women must stick together.”
Browns fans are losing their minds over that, but they are also erupting on Twitter following a rumor that their new quarterback just may be suspended for the entire 2022 season.
“The expectation throughout the Browns Organization is that QB Deshaun Watson will be suspended for the entirety of the 2022 season, per multiple sources.”
Watson’s attorney, Rusty Hardin, released the following statement, saying the quarterback “vehemently denies the allegations.”
The Browns quarterback is facing 22 other active civil lawsuits filed by massage therapists, each detailing graphic accounts of sexual harassment and sexual assault that occurred during massage therapy sessions. The accounts range from Watson allegedly refusing to cover his genitals to the quarterback “touching [a plaintiff] with his penis and trying to force her to perform oral sex on him.”
Two plaintiffs, Ashley Solis and Kyla Hayes, gave their first national TV interviews with HBO’s Real Sports With Bryant Gumbel.
Watson previously faced multiple criminal complaints, but two grand juries chose not to move forward with any charges. A Harris County prosecutor said that the decision concluded criminal proceedings against him in that county, and Watson was traded shortly afterward. A grand jury in Brazoria County declined to charge Watson on a 10th count on March 24.
