Several women sued Watson for attending Browns-Texans
Fullback Deshaun Watson will encounter a unique atmosphere for a variety of reasons when he joins the Cleveland Browns regular season debut at the Houston Texans this Sunday.
Kalyn Kahler of The Athletic reported Tuesday that attorney Tony Buzbee said that “about 10” of his clients who have accused Watson of sexual misconduct during massages were planning to watch Sunday’s game. with Buzbee from a suite at Houston’s NRG Stadium.
“I will be there to welcome Deshaun back to Houston,” Buzbee explained.
Buzbee added that he and his client want to send a clear message to signal callers that rehibilitate on Monday following an 11-match ban related to allegations of sexual misconduct:
“You think you put us behind you, but we’re still here.”
Buzbee and Watson’s Legal Team settled 23 of 24 lawsuits were filed against the 27-year-old before the official start of the season. A former massage therapist named Lauren Baxley confirmed in August she was the sole holder, and Buzbee told Kahler “that Baxley’s position has not changed.”
A new lawsuit submit against Watson last month.
Two grand juries refused to prosecute Watson and he was not charged with any crime in connection with the charges. His suspended came as a result of a settlement agreement between the NFL and the NFL Players Association.
Sunday’s game will also give Watson his first regular game since January 3, 2021, when he plays for the Texas team. He joined the entire campaign following an out-of-season trade request. The Browns completed an agreement with the Texans to provide Watson’s services this past March.
Cleveland improved to 4-7 on the season thanks to a 23-17 extra-time win this past Sunday over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and still mathematically alive in the race after the season. On Monday, Browns . head coach Kevin Stefanski speak he and his players had to “blind” to “whatever’s going on outside” and “focus on our work.”
Stefanski’s instructions could be difficult for Watson to follow next Sunday.
