Watson not out of woods yet - 2nd grand jury

Oh wee mayne. Trading huge resources, giving out a massive guaranteed contract, and alienating their current QB to take a swing on a guy with massive black clouds overhead just to watch him get indicted... that would be maximum Cleveland Browns poo right there. 😂

The Browns paid $230,000,000 for this circus. And they aren't done yet. The PR nightmare is just getting started.  They will have to shell out millions trying to change the narrative around him and the team.

Good luck with that.

Any word on if/when civil trials would happen? At this point I'm sure he's trying to settle out of court but last I heard he wanted NDA's in exchange for settling and it's a little late for that. Public trials just another horrible look and media circus potentially forcing Goodell to lay down a heavy suspension

I don't have a clue as I don't care enough to follow that circus.  Only stuff I hear about it when someone brings it up here.

They don't let me out much.

This was always a risk and needed to factor into the price of acquisition. The picks they gave up weren't crazy but the fully guaranteed contract they gave him was. I still don't think this will matter, he may be suspended for a relatively small amount of games but most likely scenario is in the long term he'll be able to play and be a franchise QB for them.

In Clevelands defense though, I believe any criminal charges against him nullify his contract guarantees.

I'd be surprised if a formally executed contract with all the proper approvals exists at this point...

...and on the exceedingly slim chance it does, there should be language in it to cover the Browns for this sort of development.

Before he was accused, the perfect dude to trade for. Since then, Lamelo Ball pass. Glad we didn't wanna guarantee him millions, this situation is too toxic to go near. I appreciate them doing their diligence but yeah I'd much rather draft my own guy who isn't a creep than hitch my wagon to that shitshow.

Been doing it since college, I doubt this stops him. Which is why that 230 million mistake will be proven because more new voices are going to come for said mistake now. 

Browns/NFL problem, tepper folded at the right time...
