Deshaun Watson can take the entire Browns to the dreaded Abu Dhabi for all we care – it won’t erase the 22 ongoing sexual assault and misconduct cases he’s still dealing with. face to face. Whether the announcement that he is undergoing treatment for his new crime for the Bahamas trip is an attempt to garner a bit of positive press or just a way to woo new teammates willing to be bribed and looked over. his numerous crimes, no one will ever go to forget the charges – and the rest of the Browns shouldn’t have contributed to the normalization of his presence on a list.
The latest news in the pre-trial hearings (again, of the 22 civil trials Watson is facing right now) is that he admitted that one of the plaintiffs, Ashley Solis, had crying after a massage therapy session, theo USA TODAY. The first of the therapists to go public, at great personal risk, Solis claimed that Watson touched her with his penis during their session. After the meeting, he texted her: “Sorry you felt uncomfortable. Never intentions. Lmk if you want to work in the future. My apologies.”
As expected, Watson stated that he didn’t know why she was “in tears”. He is also said to have met with the NFL this week to determine if he should face suspension for violating the league’s code of conduct. Twitter rumors are floating, with the possibility of a three, four or six week suspension being raised, but the reality of the situation is that no one really knows what his suspension will look like. All you have to do is wait and see.
The good news is that it’s not just gone for him – at least, not for the moment. With does not exist court orders preventing attorneys from sharing pre-trial deposits, leaks like Solis’ text and the tearful admission will continue to come from 22 different women who have been brave enough to raise their name and continue to fend off a hugely popular public figure, even as NFL teams and owners are willing to go blind to the allegations. Blindly enough, mind you, let Watson biggest Guarantee contract in the history of the game. He has some extra deposits before testing in June, though the trials themselves are not scheduled to begin until February, at which point any suspensions he must face the tournament will probably end.
At least until the season kicks off – and at that point, no one can guarantee whether people will be willing to let go of his past in exchange for a win – he’s in the spotlight. harsh, the Bahamas trip was damned. And while I don’t think it’s a fair need to ask his current teammates to speak out against him, especially as the cases are still ongoing, it’s fair to hope. that the NFL moves forward where the Browns do not condemn his behavior. A sunny holiday, as generous as it may be, cannot erase reality.
