Houston Texans’ quarterback Deshaun Watson landed himself in hot water last year as quite a few women came forward and filed lawsuits against him, alleging sexual assault. Watson had denied all the allegations made against him, stating that he has “never treated any woman with anything other than the utmost respect. His attorney also believes the NFL will make a rule on the case this Summer.

According to TMZ, Deshaun Watson’s attorney stated that the NFL has concluded its interviews with the Browns star over allegations that he was sexually inappropriate with female massage therapists.

It was said that he is now waiting for a league ruling in the case to be given this Summer. Rusty Hardin stated on the “Between The Lines: A Podcast About Sports and the Law” that Watson spoke with NFL investigators for three days this week regarding the allegations against him.

Hardin said that nothing was off the table during the talks. With the interviews done, Hardin believed that a potential NFL punishment for Watson could be figured out in a matter of weeks.

“I don’t have a deadline,” Hardin said. “I’d suspect the NFL wants to conclude its investigation sometime this summer. Whether that is June or whether that’s August or July, I have no idea. That’s their schedule.”

Hardin further added that he is under the belief that his client was not inappropriate with any of his 22 accusers, further claiming any sexual conduct his client had with the women was consensual. We’ll keep you updated on this ongoing story.
