D.Watson are we still interested ?


Recommended Posts

We got Donald, but In theory Watson settles these issues.. and have no more bad will on him then Big Ben had back in the day… Tho society has been alittle more “woke”. I don’t think the league punishes him if he does settle out of court with no police or criminal charge attached to it.. with that said and if the deal is right.. would you push for the trade  and or be okay with Watson starting the 21-22 season for the panthers  ??

He may pay to make this all go away legally but there will always be a dark cloud over him for the rest of his career and who knows how much backlash those of the MeToo movement will cause for whatever team that acquires him.

I am not certain that Tepper would want to deal with that type of "publicity" when he's trying to build the franchise up to something respectable.

It's hard to say. 

I've read that the reason that Buzbee and company have brought up settling is that they perceive problems with the case. That being said, I think that many people are going to be able to overlook this issue, give him an opportunity to resume his career, and keep a mental leash on him at the very least and watch whether or not he's learned lessons and stays out of trouble.

The steep cost does not line up with his awful judgement as someone who should be meticulous with his decision making as the face of a major sports franchise.

Unless he came to the Panthers for free if the Texans released him or something, no it’s too expensive to trade for him and his future is very uncertain.
