22 Women Accuse Houston Texans QB Watson of Sexual Misconduct

Deshaun Watson, the quarterback of the Houston Texans, is now facing civil or sexual assault allegations from 22 women. All are service workers in the health and wellness industry. They said Watson assaulted them after he hired them for massages via Instagram. These incidents happened in 2020 and 2021. The recent three suits filed by the women called it a “disturbing pattern.”

22 Suits Against the Houston Texans Player

Two of the 22 women are filing a suit for sexual assault against Watson. One woman alleged that he forced her to perform oral sex. This occurred during a December 2020 massage. Another claimed that he wrapped his legs around her neck and forced her to perform sexual acts. This was during an August 2020 massage.

For the other women, they are suing the 25-year-old Houston Texans QB for civil assault. They alleged similar experiences of Watson exposing himself and aggressively telling them to touch inappropriate areas of his body. Some even stated that he touched them with his genitals. 

Watson Accused of Deleting Instagram Messages

One of the lawsuits recently filed alleged that Watson “is deleting Instagram messages, and contacting those who formally provided him massages, in an attempt to settle.” But, according to the Houston Texans’ attorney, Rusty Hardin, while he “regularly deletes” his past Instagram messages, “he has not deleted any messages since March 15, the day before the first lawsuit was filed.” Hardin also denied that Watson directly contacted his accusers to settle the cases.

The NFL Player’s Side Denies All the Claims

Another woman also claimed that she told another NFL player, who remains anonymous, about her experience with Watson. The player allegedly told her that “there is a thin line between physical therapy and sexual pleasure. Watson crossed that line over into sexual pleasure.” 

But despite all of these allegations, Hardin condemned all the lawsuits. He told CBS News that his team would address all the allegations. He also previously stated that the first seven allegations were meritless and that he believes “any allegation that Deshaun forced a woman to commit a sexual act is completely false.”

On his part, the Houston Texans QB tweeted that he’s “never treated any woman with anything other than the utmost respect.” 

He stated last March 16 that, “The plaintiff’s lawyer claims that this isn’t about money, but before filing suit he made a baseless six-figure settlement demand, which I quickly rejected. Unlike him, this isn’t about money for me — it’s about clearing my name, and I look forward to doing that.” 

The NFL is still investigating the allegations. The Houston Texans said that they would stay “in close contact” with the league and will “continue to take this and all matters involving anyone within the Houston Texans organization seriously.”

Although this news might come as a shock for Watson’s fans, this should not stop the NFL fans out there to start supporting their favourites.

4 Names to Watch Out for in the 2019 NFL Season

Excitement builds up a few days before the opening of the 2019 NFL season on September 5, 2019. Several changes on the rules are lined up. The centennial emblem of the league will be unveiled as well.

However, there is nothing more exciting than seeing football players do what they do best on the field. Aside from the seasoned players—from Tom Brady to Antonio Brown, the fans are looking forward to seeing new names to rock the NFL world.

The players listed here currently appear in the Top 100 Players of 2018 list. Here they are.

1) A.J. Green

The Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver currently ranks #22. Although he was down five rankings from the previous year, Green has his 7th Pro Bowl selection under his belt. He also has 1,000 receiving yards in seven out of eight seasons.

Green is one of the most consistent players when it comes to surpassing the 1,000-yard mark. He has a strong play that made the playoffs possible for the Bengals. His speed is still impressive compared to his younger counterparts. Such agility can easily break the opposing team’s defence—his real contributions on the field.

2) LeSean McCoy

McCoy is the Buffalo Bills running back who currently ranks #30 on the said list. He was also down three rankings. McCoy has his 6th Pro Bowl selection (with 5th in a row). He was also the 30th player who has 10,000 yards on his name.

McCoy is an elusive player in the field; someone who can change directions in the most abrupt manner. The shiftiness favoured him though avoiding constant hits. This is one of the reasons for his proven longevity in the league.

3) Jadeveon Clowney

One of the most improved players, Clowney ranks #32, which is 17 positions higher than his previous ranking. He has 2nd Pro Bowl selection. Nonetheless, Clowney achieved career highs in five categories: sacks, quarterback hits, tackles, forced fumbles, and fumble recoveries. The Houston Texans defensive end ranks second to Chandler Jones in terms of quarterback hits (20+) and tackles for losses (21).

It took a while before Clowney could become comfortable in the field. But in 2016, he proved his worth and got included in the first-team All-Pro. He became the force to reckon with ever since. Clowney formed the most fearsome pass-rushing duo in NFL with J.J. Watt. Thus, he could be one of the reasons the Texans might appear in the playoff. 

4) Tyreek Hill

A wide receiver to Kansas City Chiefs, Hill ranks #40 in the list. His ranking was down four positions from 2017. Hills has 2nd Pro Bowl selection. He was also one of four players who have 1,100 receiving yards. His accomplishments include 7+ touchdowns.

Hill is a deep-field threat and a complete receiver. His dynamicity in the field is not quite apparent on any other football player. The team’s prospect for winning a ring would be strengthened if Hill won’t go anywhere else this season and the seasons to come.
