Deshaun Watson has been accused of sexual misconduct by over 20 different women. Watson signed with the Cleveland Browns to replace Baker Mayfield in the midst of his growing legal trouble. After staying low-key for a while, Deshaun finally addressed the media about the allegations.
Watson is alleged to have acted inappropriately with dozens of women. He has maintained his innocence in the matter. The NFL has been waiting to see what happens before taking any disciplinary action against the troubled QB.
At Watson’s first media appearance since he was introduced by the Browns, he had plenty to say. Deshaun said his situation is tough, but he is trying to stay balanced. He believes in his legal team and has a strong support system.
“Honestly, it’s been tough. Just trying to make sure that I stay balanced with my mental and just my social life. But, I have a great family. I have a great legal team. and I have a great support cast here in this organization.”
When asked about his experience with the NFL’s investigation into his alleged abuse, Deshaun Watson was candid. He said he spent hours with the league representatives and tried to answer their questions honestly.
The NFL is hoping to have a decision made on Deshaun Watson’s punishment before the start of the 2022 season. That choice will have to be made before any of this can be resolved through the legal system. The league is in an unenviable position but will have to determine how they want to handle Watson soon.
