Deshaun Watson truth bomb won’t please Texans fans
Deshaun Watson didn’t play a single game for the Houston Texans in 2021 amid the sexual assault and misconduct allegations thrown against him. Despite the quarterback missing the whole season, though, the team has apparently made zero progress in dealing with his situation.
As Texans general manager Nick Caserio said one day after firing coach David Culley, there is not much “clarity today that there was here previously” with regards to Watson’s situation. He refused to go into anything specific about the disgruntled star’s case, but he vowed to come up with a resolution about it sooner rather than later.
“We’re going to work through it, and ultimately we’re going to do what we feel is best for the organization,” Caserio said, via ESPN.
To recall, the Texans tried to send Deshaun Watson away during the trade deadline, with the Miami Dolphins reportedly coming close to pulling the trigger for the 26-year-old signal-caller. However, the negotiations fell apart after Watson failed to settle his lawsuit with the women who accused him of sexual assault.
Sure enough, the Texans are expected to explore trading Watson again this offseason. But the question remains if he can resolve the lawsuit he is currently facing. There were reports he has made several settlement offers to his accuser, but it doesn’t look like things has progressed.
For now, Texans fans have to wait and see what happens to Watson’s legal situation before Houston makes any decision on his future.
