Deshaun Watson’s inclusion on Cleveland’s fifty-three-man roster became official on Monday, paving the stage for a Browns start on Sunday versus his previous team, the Texans. We know from a response of Browns qb Joshua Dobbs.
For breaching the league’s conduct policy code by engaging in sexual assault against massager, as determined by the governing body, Deshaun Watson received an 11-game ban. In addition, he was subject to a $5 mn fine as well as a required treatment plan. When Watson plays on Sunday, it will have been precisely seven-hundred days since his last appearance in a normal game.
And over two dozen women accused Deshaun Watson of sexual harassment and other unsuitable sexual behavior during massage treatments. He consented to resolve twenty-three of the twenty-four cases against him throughout the course of the summer. While the judge ordered that plaintiff’s plea be changed to include her name, the client voluntarily dismissed a twenty-fifth complaint. Although they did not sue Deshaun Watson, 2 other women lodged criminal charges on him. On October 13, a different woman accused Watson of pressuring her into oral intercourse during a treatment in 2020 and filed a lawsuit.
Deshaun Watson Lawsuit Came Back To The Field After Long Absence:
Previously this year, 2 grand juries in Texas opted not to file charges against Dehsaun Watson. Watson has always denied any misconduct and said that no one has shown any interest in listening to his version of events.
Although he is anticipated to speak publicly late in the week, he has yet to do so since his ban was publicly disclosed in August.
In order to acquire Watson, the Browns sent the Houston 3 1st draft selections in March. Additionally, Watson was signed by Browns to the highest-paying NFL deal in history, a 5-year deal for two thirty million guaranteed.
