Will Fuller, who was one of Deshaun Watson’s wide receivers for four seasons with the Houston Texans, is speaking out on the sexual assault allegations that have piled up against the 25-year-old QB. At last count, 24 women have now come forward with complaints against Watson. Fourteen lawsuits have been filed.
One case filed Monday alleges Watson “assaulted and harassed the plaintiff over two sessions ‘by grabbing Plaintiff’s buttocks and vagina, touching her with his penis and trying to force her to perform oral sex on him.’”
Fuller told ESPN reporter Cameron Wolfe that he’s supportive of his former teammate. “I fully support Deshaun. I don’t know any of the specifics about what’s going on with him but I fully support him. I’ve been talking to him. To me, it seems like his head is completely straight.”
“I’m just looking forward to seeing where everything goes,” Fuller added. “Hopefully he’s OK.”
Fuller isn’t the first person to come out and publicly support the quarterback who’s doing everything in his power to leave Houston. Instagram model @LovelyLaaLaaa made headlines over the weekend when she stepped forward as a character witness.
“I can say this, I’ve given Deshaun Watson several massages, an not once did it turn sexual or he become aroused. Always professional and great conversations,” Lala tweeted.
As we’ve said over and over, this is going to be one incredible battle for both sides. Character witnesses are lining up against the 24 women who said they’ve been sexually assaulted. Buckle up.
