Watson may be placed on paid leave.

I just recently read where the lawyers will not release the names of the plaintiffs to Watson's lawyer.  They are building up a frenzy in the public eye before the defense has an opportunity to investigate all these claims.

I find it odd that 2 weeks ago not one woman stepped up and said something.  Now there are over 20.  They all woke up one morning from a dream and decided to tell their story.  The original plaintiff tried to extort money from Watson for her eternal silence.    Also, I read where Watson had them sign a non-disclosure statement sometimes before and after their encounter.  This will be interesting if that is true. 

I think there is a medium here.  It's less than what really happened but more than what Watson is saying. 

I do believe the Texans help round up these women probably with the hint of receiving some financial benefit.

Not sure why the Texans would be interested in completely tanking any trade value he had?

I would 99% agree with you, any rational owner would never do that. Bob McNair was a different kind of dude, who knows how far the apple fell with Cal? I could see him doing this out of spite or in an attempt to clear Watson and ensure his loyalty. Now that's just the crazy conspiracy part of me, but it really wouldn't surprise me if we found out either Buzbee was under the table hired by McNair or was passed info through back channels to avoid any connection with McNair. Now the choice is with Watson, continue to pursue a trade and face the consequences or stay and the lawsuits will simply be disproven and vanish.

Are dates and locations not sufficient? Are there that many women that Watson's team can't piece together those two bits of information in order to figure out the individual?

I guess if Watson is the one telling the truth, he wouldn't be able to piece together who the women are from dates and locations because it never happened.

Buzbee continued: “That info will be released, again in public filings—not in the media. My second reaction is a question: why would his marketing agent admit Watson had sex for pay with a massage therapist, consensual or otherwise?”

 

“We will also provide a copy of the non-disclosure agreement that Deshaun Watson and his marketing manager repeatedly insisted that Jane Doe (and others) sign after (and sometimes before) the “massage session,” which she refused to sign.

I do appreciate Mr. Hardin’s professionalism and his words of support for victims, but would respectfully suggest there are many facts here, that we will put in public filings, that Mr. Hardin might not be aware of. We will provide additional details in a statement, consistent with our ethical obligations in due course. I’m hoping we can do so by Friday.”

The defendant has the right to this information.  It's simple.  This is nothing but a ploy by the lawyers to get public opinion against him before a trial is conducted.

I'm not saying he didn't do it but I find is quite suspicious that all this came out after he said he wouldn't play for the Texans again.  

 He may have had some sort of sex with them but I find it hard to believe it wasn't consensual. 

This is what is wrong with allegations like this.  Quantity overwrites facts.  They get a bunch of women to say the same thing and there is no physical evidence therefore the charges are valid because so many say the same thing.  It's the same way they nailed Bill Cosby.   Than all these women sue and get a boatload of money and ruin a man.

What does this coming out after (months after) he said he wouldn’t play for Houston have to do with anything?

Further, how does this help the Texans?

    • Something else to consider - we are now paying Cam 10 million for a few games.  That’s 10 million we normally could have rolled into next years Cap that we now can’t.  That hurts
    • https://www.cbssports.com/nfl/news/panthers-matt-rhule-remains-coveted-by-college-programs-but-hes-not-interested-as-of-now/  But numerous league and college sources said the NFL coach held in highest regard by many premier programs is Carolina coach Matt Rhule. Sources said LSU had Rhule atop their wish list -- it ended up hiring Brian Kelly from Notre Dame -- as did USC and Oklahoma, the latter yet to name a coach with Lincoln Riley going to USC. Programs put out major feelers for Rhule, sources said, a coach who revived programs at Temple and Baylor and produced staffs and players who excelled as well. Rhule is in his second year of what has been a rocky tenure with the Panthers, as that team struggles to find an offensive identity and, most importantly, someone to handle quarterback duties for more than a temporary basis.  but college programs still wanted to gauge his interest before moving on with their searches. That is likely to remain the case next year, though it's hard to envision as many of these type of destination jobs opening up in 2022. Many close to Rhule have long maintained that the Penn State job would be the most difficult for him to turn down, but Nittany Lions coach James Franklin recently signed a long-term extension to stay in Happy Valley (though numerous college sources were adamant that he was hopeful of landing one of the several big jobs that opened up last month).  
    • Yeah I see it as he had less talent around him than Burrow, but played against less talent. Clemson’s defense was as good as anyone’s not named UGA and Pickett played well against them (over 300 yards with 2 TDs and 0 INTs).
