Deshaun Watson’s legal troubles aren’t going away anytime soon.
Watson, facing 24 lawsuits from women alleging sexual misconduct during massage sessions, would 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 hailstorm in West Texas. He can’t run. He can’t hide and he can’t stop it.”
Earlier this month, two lawsuits were filed against Watson, bringing the tally to 24. The 24th and most recent lawsuit alleges that Watson engaged in inappropriate behavior during a massage appointment, forcing the grievor to leave massage therapy after the incident.
As the list of lawsuits against Watson grows, a report last week said the Browns are still “all-in” on the much-maligned QB.
In March, Cleveland acquired Watson from the Houston Texans in a trade of five draft picks, including three first-rounders. After the deal, the Browns signed Watson to a five-year, fully guaranteed, $230 million deal.
