Deshaun Watson was once one of the most exciting quarterbacks in the NFL for multiple years. However, now he’s one of the most reviled figures in the sport because of his horrendous actions towards women and terrible play on the field. The Cleveland Browns sold their souls to secure his services because they were desperate to win. And they thought Watson was the man to will them to that long-lost success.
But he may go down as one of their biggest-ever mistakes, which is saying a lot for a franchise that has made countless of them. It’s not going well for Watson and his franchise at the moment. Nothing he does works while he is hurting the Browns on and off the field. Today we’ll look at all of the reasons why Watson is already a failure in Cleveland after less than a full season on the field. Check them out here.
Some people can’t believe that Watson can step onto a football field because of his horrendous conduct toward women. The quarterback pushed for a trade from the Houston Texans but then a major scandal arose. Dozens of masseuses emerged and accused Watson of sexually assaulting them.
This was vile but he didn’t face criminal charges. However, he went to a civil court and handed out a ton of cash in settlements. Meanwhile, the NFL hit him with an 11-game suspension as well as a five-million-dollar fine. It was an exceptionally dark period for Watson but one of his own creation (via NFL.com).
