Deshaun Watson spoke to reporters on Friday after a grand jury decided not to indict him on criminal charges stemming from multiple sexual assault allegations. He called it an emotional day and looks forward to getting back on the field.
Deshaun Watson just spoke to reporters for the first time in over a year: "I'm going to keep fighting to rebuild my name and rebuild my appearance in the community."
Says he's ready to get back on the field.

Watson also took to Twitter to address the court ruling. He tweeted out, "When you stand on the TRUTH, the LORD will FREE you!"
His girlfriend Jilly Anais, who has stuck by him throughout the sexual assault allegations ordeal, reacted to the court ruling by sharing his tweet on her Instagram story.
I don't know if Deshaun did anything or not, but there wasn't enough evidence to pursue any criminal charges. His girlfriend obviously believes his side of the story as well.
That doesn't mean Watson didn't do anything wrong. It just means there's not enough to prove it.
Will he be suspended by the NFL? Probably. Will he be traded to another team soon? That also seems highly likely.
