The quarterback Deshaun Watson, former Houston Texanswho was absent from the NFL a year for accusations of sexual harassment, appeared this Tuesday to begin preseason work with his new team, the cleveland browns.
Watson, who signed a $230 million, five-year deal with the Browns, did not play in the 2021 season because of 22 lawsuits against him for sexual abuse and sexual misconduct during massage sessions.
Last March a grand jury of Texas dismissed criminal charges against the passer and finalized the process against him, after which Watson signed with the Brown’s.
I’m just going to keep fighting to rebuild my name and appearance in the community.
“I’m just going to keep fighting to rebuild my name and my appearance in the community,” the quarterback said at the end of a grand jury session in mid-March.
Although the player was not charged criminally, he still awaits a sanction from the NFL and 22 civil lawsuits that remain active.
This Tuesday on the social networks of the Cleveland Browns a photograph of Watson was published in a black jacket; the player posed with a smile while raising his index fingers in a sign of number one.
The quarterback who played with jersey number four in the Texans arrived in Houston selected in the first round of the 2017 Draft and since his rookie season he projected a bright future.
He got three consecutive appointments to the Pro Bowl between 2018 and 2020, a season in which he also finished as the NFL’s passing yards leader.
In addition to Watson, the quarterback also showed up at the first day of training Josh Dobbswho comes from the Pittsburgh Steelersand appears as a backup of the former player of the Texans.
With this team of passers, the return of Baker Mayfieldthe Browns’ starting quarterback in 2021, who was not present for this return to training.
In fact, as soon as Mayfield found out that Coach’s team Kevin Stefanski wanted Watson asked to be transferred to another team, something that has not happened yet.
Last week, Mayfield accused Cleveland of disrespecting him not only for hiring Watson, but for the lack of stability shown by the Browns, who have gone through four different coaches since he arrived on the team in 2018.
