Houston attorney Tony Buzbee, who has filed three lawsuits against Deshaun Watson on behalf of his clients, posted a since-deleted letter from the NFL on Thursday that reveals the league is investigating the allegations against the Texans quarterback.
The letter was tagged as “confidential,” so that is likely why he deleted it, but social media saw it and posted the letter.
The letter from Lisa Friel, who is the NFL’s special counsel for investigations, reads in part: “I am writing to let you know that the League has opened an investigation into these allegations and to request the cooperation of your clients in our investigation. Such cooperation would begin with engaging in Zoom interviews with myself and another League investigator at which, of course, you would be present.”
It has now been three massage therapists filing lawsuits against Watson alleging assault during a session with him. The most recent lawsuit is the most graphic with the masseuse accusing Watson of forcing her to perform oral sex.
Way back in 2010, the NFL suspended Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger four games when he was accused of sexual assault twice – once in a civil suit and another that resulted in no charges being filed.
According to the Houston attorney, he is now being represented by nine women now. Whether Watson is innocent or guilty, you have to believe that the league is going to sit him down for a few games, if not the entire season until this thing is figured out.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS?
