Massage Therapist Not In Lawsuit Wants Apology From Deshaun Watson

Videos by OutKick

One of Deshaun Watson’s accusers has come forward in an interview with Sports Illustrated to talk about what went down. It’s not looking good for the Texans star, but one thing should be clear: This is either the greatest black ball attempt of all time from Houston ownership, or the Texans were led out of the tunnel by Bill Cosby.

The massage therapist, going by the alias “Mary,” says Watson’s refusal to apologize is what bothers her.

Well, if Watson is hypothetically innocent, then he’s acting exactly how he should. If he hasn’t done anything wrong, he shouldn’t apologize to anyone and he should deal with the cases as they come. The last thing an innocent man looking for a trade should do is become bogged down in legal procedures for crimes he didn’t commit. He’d want this whole thing to go away as quickly as possible.

“The one thing I keep thinking about is, he’s about to get traded to another place,” Mary (the therapist) says. “What if he goes to Atlanta or California or anywhere else? He would have a whole new community of massage therapists to target.”

Her claim:

Apparently Mary was told Watson insisted on being covered by a towel rather than a standard sheet. She described the entire experience as “unlike anything I’ve experienced from any other client,” according to Sports Illustrated’s report.

There have already been 19 cases filed against Watson, and all of them should be taken seriously. However, if proven innocent, the Houston Texans will look like they put this whole case in motion because of Watson’s trade demands. At first, that sounded like a big conspiracy theory, but it would grow some legs if the Texans star is exonerated. We’ll keep our eyes peeled on the how this whole thing develops. Either way, it’s about to get ugly.

  1. Gary – the chance that Texans orchestrated these sexual assault allegations is incredibly remote. To even consider that possibility, you have to analyze how the Texans benefit from such a ruse. This legal mess erodes Watson’s trade value, limits potential trade partners, risks multi-game suspension from the NFL, and creates a PR nightmare for the team. In other words, the Texans do not benefit from this mess at all. Chances are good that this ends with an out of court settlement with the plaintiffs and no determination of Watson’s guilt or innocence. Thanks for covering this story, Gary. Few other media outlets are.

  2. Why the hell would the Texans put this type of effort in motion? Even IF Watson is exonerated, he’s damaged goods and has zero trade value. Massage therapists across the nation will begin to cringe when he even looks at their profile on instagram.

    Any team that attempts to trade for him will have protests on their hands. Even the remaining NFL fans in Houston have begun to wonder what the heck happened to this man who was supposed to be the kind of man you could trust your daughter with.

  3. This is an interesting twist. Say he apologizes, does it affirm his behavior on the other claims? (On another note, I’ve enjoyed his silence, so keep it going Deshaun.)
