Given the multitude of sexual assault accusations levied against Deshaun Watson, it’s understandable that the Houston Texans want to distance themselves from the star quarterback.
Consider it done.
Per reports, the Texans have removed Watson from their in-house intro video, known as “Texans 360.”
“At the start of last week, Texans owner Cal McNair and his family released a statement to season ticket holders that condemned sexual assault and expressed their commitment to the legal process and the NFL’s ongoing investigation,” wrote Liz Roscher of Yahoo Sports. “It notably contained no words of support for Watson.”
Prior to the 22 allegations, from 22 massage therapists, Watson had reportedly sought a trade. Now, his status with the team (and NFL as a whole) is very much up in the air, and for very different reasons.
Ashley Solis was the first massage therapist to sue Watson. She publicly disclosed her identity last week. A judge has ordered 13 of the accusers to identify themselves, as OutKick’s Megan Turner wrote.
