SJ - June 21, 2022

Deshaun Watson has settled 20 of the 24 sexual misconduct lawsuits filed against him.  This according to lawyer Tony Buzbee, who represents the accusers.

"We are working through the paperwork related to those settlements," Buzbee said in a statement. "Once we have done so, those particular cases will be dismissed.  The terms and amounts of the settlements are confidential.  We won't comment further on the settlements or those cases."

The NFL, who reportedly wants a lengthy suspension to be handed down to the Browns quarterback, responded to news of the settlements.  A spokesman for the NFL said these new developments with have "no impact on the collectively bargained disciplinary process."

The Browns better hope one of their backups are ready to start, and quite possibly, play the entire season.  And for God's sake Free Baker!
