NFL Fines Texans Players For Appearance At Deshaun Watson’s Restaurant

Deshaun Watson made a bold move. During a global pandemic, the Houston Texans quarterback opened a restaurant.

In order to celebrate the occasion, he invited a few of his teammates out for the grand opening. Now those teammates have been fined by the NFL. Attending the event apparently broke protocol.

Below are the teammates who attended the event:

  • Wide receiver Brandin Cooks
  • Offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil
  • Running back Duke Johnson
  • Defensive lineman Charles Omenihu

So, how did they get caught? Well, there were actually photos of them at the restaurant, Lefty’s Cheesesteak, posted by Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle.

According to Sarah Barshop of ESPN, those fines will be in the neighborhood of $5,000. Tom Pelissero with the NFL Network reported that Watson’s fine actually exceeded that number ($7,500).

The NFL isn’t messing around with broken protocols.

The Texans are currently 4-10 this season with only two games remaining. They will face the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday before taking on the Tennessee Titans to end the regular season.
