Another entry in the long running saga.

On Monday, Deshaun Watson’s legal team formally filed an answer to the first of nearly two dozen lawsuits that have been filed against the Texans’ quarterback.

In the filing, Watson’s team details their defenses against individual accusers and asserts multiple reasons why the accusations are motivated by money and not illicit conduct. Watson has formally requested a trial by jury; any such proceedings will take place at a much later date. Everything may end up playing out in court, and if it does, this lawsuit will be ongoing for a long time. The legal process is slow and arduous. There is nothing quick about this.

One thing I saw that Steph Stradley pointed out was very interesting.

Now, this doesn’t mean that anyone is guilty, liable, or isn’t, but it does seem a tad misleading on Buzbee’s part to get people to come forward.

We’ll keep you updated with more Watson news moving forward.
