A mere month ago, Deshaun Watson reportedly wanted a trade out of Houston. Now, he may strictly be hoping for another opportunity to play football again … anywhere.
“Every day, Deshaun Watson has found himself in a worse position than he was on the day prior,” Clay Travis said on OutKick the Show. “We have moved from Deshaun Watson … saying that he had never done anything wrong and looking like he was going to battle these (sexual assault allegations) wholeheartedly, to now, he’s on such a defensive.”
Translation: It’s not looking good for the star quarterback.
“Best case scenario, he’s probably going to miss all of 2021,” Clay said. “Worst case scenario, we have now moved him into a category where he could be Bill Cosby or Jeffrey Epstein. That is, going to jail for years and being convicted of being a sexual predator.”
Clay went on to say the sports media has been way behind in covering the Watson ordeal.
“This is a major story that I think many people in sports media, and media in general, are far behind and don’t really understand how to analyze it,” he said. “I would encourage you out there to treat this with the severity and seriousness with which it deserves — and understand that we’re talking about Deshaun Watson likely out for the entirety of 2021, and maybe years beyond that.”
The Watson situation was just one of many topics discussed by Clay, so be sure to check out the show in its entirety in the video below.
