Deshaun Watson’s legal issues aren’t going away anytime soon.
Watson, facing 24 lawsuits filed by women alleging sexual misconduct during massage sessions, will reportedly see that number rise to 26.
According to Nakia Cooper of KPRC 2 in Houston, attorney Tony Buzbee is “in the process of filing two more lawsuits” against Watson.
“With each additional lawsuit, this litigation continues to reach Defcon 1,” KPRC 2 legal analyst Brian Wice told Cooper. “Deshaun Watson is caught in a West Texas hailstorm. He can’t run. He can’t hide and he can’t make it stop.”
Earlier this month, two lawsuits were levied against Watson, bringing the number to 24. The 24th and most recent lawsuit alleges Watson engaged in inappropriate behavior during a massage appointment, causing the plaintiff to quit massage therapy after the incident.
While the list of lawsuits against Watson grows, a report last week stated the Browns were still “all-in” on the much-maligned QB.
In March, Cleveland acquired Watson from the Houston Texans in a trade for five draft picks, including three first-rounders. After the deal, the Browns inked Watson to a fully guaranteed five-year, $230 million contract.
