Deshaun Watson did not see the field in a single game this season. He was missed this time due to a non-injury reasons/personal matter.
That non-injury personal matter was a list of over 20 sexual assault lawsuits. He allegedly tried to settle the lawsuits in order to facilitate a trade from the Texans.
The details of one of those alleged settlement offers has been revealed.
From The Daily Beast:
In the settlement offer, Watson “denies all such claims and liability, including the facts alleged” by the accuser, and says the $100,000 payment is meant to “buy peace.”
If the accuser were to accept, they would then agree to dismiss the pending civil suit within 24 hours and adhere to strict confidentiality and non-disparagement clauses contained in the agreement, including that neither party nor their agents “will speak, write, or otherwise communicate publicly or privately, including in any interviews, social media posts, blog posts, articles or any other media or forum, on the terms of this Agreement, and the amount of the settlement”; will not disclose the “Settlement Amount”; and that any violation of the agreement’s terms “will cause irreparable harm and that money damages will be inadequate to fully compensate for such damages.”
I wonder why no one has accepted these settlements. Obviously I'm being sarcastic. He's taking no responsibility for any of his alleged actions.
I'm sure these will eventually be settled, but it's probably going to take more than $100k per to get that done.
