Incase ya haven’t heard, Cleveland Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson’s 11-game suspension is up, and he’ll be able to play this upcoming Sunday against his former team, the Houston Texans.
Over the past year and a half or so, Watson has been accused by 24 women of sexual assault and sexual misconduct.
The allegations ultimately led to him having to miss last season in Houston as the accusations piled up, and although no charges were pressed, the NFL served him an 11-game suspension this season and a $5 million fine after getting picked up by the Browns.
After an 11-game suspension for violations of the NFL's personal conduct policy, #Browns QB Deshaun Watson has complied with all the terms and now is officially back and active.
With that being said, 10 of the 24 accusers will be in attendance at Watson’s first game back this Sunday at NRG Stadium in Houston, according to TMZ.
Their attorney, Tony Buzbee, will be in attendance as well, telling The Athletic:
“I will be there to welcome Deshaun back to Houston.”
He also said he’ll be there will “bells and whistles on.”
And when he was asked why the accusers would want to see him play, Buzbee responded:
“You think you put us behind you, but we are still here.”
Aside from the ongoing accusations, it will be interesting to see how Watson’s performance on the field is, considering he hasn’t seen action on the football field since January 3rd, 2021.
Not to mention, it will be even more interesting to see how the crowd reacts to him as well.
Watson has never had to play a game in front of his accusers — until now. Attorney Tony Buzbee told he’ll have a suite at the Browns- Texans game in Houston Sunday and he says ten of the women he represented against Watson have told him they plan to come.https://t.co/siYv32vsUC
