Clay Travis: “On Thursday the Houston Police Department confirmed that they have officially begun a criminal investigation into Deshaun Watson for potential sexual assault. I’m putting my lawyer hat on now. This is a REALLY bad sign for Deshaun Watson. There are three different issues for Deshaun Watson from a legal and play perspective that he needs to be worried about, and I’m going to tell you their ranking in order of significance. The first and least significant is the NFL’s personal conduct policy. The NFL is going to investigate Deshaun Watson and try to determine if he has violated the NFL’s personal conduct policy, and if so they are going to suspend him. I would be stunned beyond belief if Deshaun Watson will cooperate in any way with this investigation. Based on all of the evidence out there right now I would be stunned if Deshaun Watson plays football in 2021 anywhere. I think it’s likely he’s going to sit out the season either from suspension or with legal issues hanging over his head. I would never cooperate with the NFL because he has nothing to gain there. Second most significant issue: 22 I believe is the current number of lawsuits with the women now having put their names to the charges… Deshaun Watson’s attorney Rusty Hardin has said they play to go to jury trial in 22 different cases... That is a bunch of malarky. There is no way that is actually going to happen. If I were advising Deshaun Watson I would tell him to settle all these cases immediately, even if it costs you $20 million to avoid any more criminal issues that may be arising. Honestly, I think Deshaun Watson has received really poor advice. There are emails out there that show if Tony Buzbee had gotten his way, Deshaun Watson would have settled this first case for $100,000. It would have never gone public in any way. It would have been an easy resolution and that was the end of it. A lot of these women then would have never gone forward. I think Deshaun Watson has gotten awful advice. They could have settled this for $100,000, that’s a rounding error to Deshaun Watson. This is one of the all-time bad advice, miscalculations. If I were talking to him right now I would tell him that he needs to fire all of his representation because they led him astray. The final issue is that they are now criminally investigating this case. If you’re facing criminal charges, instead of just being able to buy your way out of problems, you’re now potentially facing years in prison, and you have to worry about becoming the NFL’s version of Bill Cosby or Jeffrey Epstein… It ain’t getting better for him any time soon.” (Full Segment Above)
Listen to Clay Travis, a licensed lawyer in Tennessee, explain why he thinks Deshaun Watson’s situation keeps getting grimmer for him, as Clay thinks Watson’s legal team has severely painted him into a corner, even going so far to say that Watson should ‘fire all of his representation.’
Check out the segment above as Clay says he would be ‘stunned’ if Watson plays at all in 2021, and fears that Watson could be the NFL’s version of Bill Cosby of Jeffrey Epstein.
