Texans fine players for attending the unveiling of Deshaun Watson’s new restaurant
Members of the Houston Texans were recently at an event that was conducted to unveil Deshaun Watson’s new restaurant. Despite the players taking part in what that they thought was a harmless occasion, all of the players present at the unveiling of the restaurant were fined (per Pro Football Talk).
Nearly a week ago, Watson and some of his teammates arrived at his restaurant’s opening. With the COVID-19 pandemic still going on, the Pro Bowl quarterback drew scrutiny from fans and the media alike for violating the league’s coronavirus protocols.
At the event, there were a handful of photos taken of Watson and some of his teammates. Within the photos, Watson and some members of the Texans were seen without masks and weren’t distancing themselves by at least six feet.
Despite the photos showing some violations of the protocols, Watson denied that he or his teammates committed any wrongdoing. Watson uttered that they were wearing masks and were adhering to all of the guidelines that have been given to them.
Besides Deshaun Watson, Laremy Tunsil, Tytus Howard, Roderick Johnson, Duke Johnson, Brandin Cooks and Charles Omenihu made appearances at the unveiling of the Texans quarterback’s restaurant. Even though all of them were punished for violating the protocols, it remains to be seen how much each player was fined for their involvement.
