Buzbee posted these on Instagram and promised to reveal more that’ll supposedly indict the Houston Texans star quarterback. These are set to come out in a news conference set in Houston on Friday.
However, based off of these texts alone, there seems to be no hard evidence that indicates that Watson did anything wrong.
Context is everything in these situations, and it seems like Buzbee has taken texts randomly which could mean anything. This case is still developing, but for now it doesn’t seem like Buzbee has much traction.
What is Deshaun Watson Being Accused Of? What Are The Allegations Against The Houston Texans Quarterback?
Watson is being accused for a number of things from a number of different women. However, all the cases link him to some form of sexual assault or harassment.
Various women said that Watson allegedly tried to pressure them into various sexual acts including oral sex, massaging his genitals, and inappropriate touching.
Only three lawsuits have been filed formally, and they come from a masseuse, a fitness trainer, and a body-work and stretch therapist. Of course, Watson has come out and vehemently denied any such involvement. He has said that he has “never treated any woman with anything other than the utmost respect.”
There is a long way to go before any of this is resolved, and Buzbee’s next few texts are sure to shed some light on this situation. Watson is a role-model in the league, his character always positive. Even throughout his college days, Watson has never been accused of anything like this off the field.
Regardless, it’s just a waiting game. Are Buzbee and his clients lying and trying to drag Watson’s name to the ground in a tumultuous offseason for the Pro Bowler? Or, is Watson in the wrong here? More news to come as the story develops.
