Per Adam Schefter, “In speaking to some teams, I don’t think this is going to deter anyone’s interest in trading for Deshaun Watson”

Either we're THAT desperate to make this deal happen regardless or the overall perception is that this is a shakedown.

I think it's reasonable to believe the circumstances surrounding these allegations are strange despite people attempting to guilt trip everyone into automatically believing every accusation regardless of circumstance.

Don't know, but yeah, I have a hard time buying that an allegation of forced oral sex wouldn't give a team pause.

Might be that teams are still interested if things get worked out. Trading for him under the current circumstances would be a huge mistake.

Think you gotta look at someone like Antonio Brown, who just won a Super Bowl with Tampa not getting much (if any) flack for signing him. His situation, which is still ongoing, is pretty similar to what Deshaun is being accused of.

The timing of all this is CERTAINLY suspect....as is the lawyer who is involved.

there is the argument NFL teams have better ears/contacts to what is actually going on though than us/media...

I would imagine there are players in the NFL that got a pretty good grasp on this situation with Watson.  That know his sins.  Know what has been happening. 

Things are often a surprise to us.  Not to the NFL.   We were shocked to learn about a lot of stuff that has gone down in the NFL.  Lot of it is stuff guys knew for years.
