Texans’ Deshaun Watson Getting Suspended For Entire Season?

By now the Deshaun Watson story is a matter of public record.

It started with one massage therapist accusing him of being inappropriate. Then came another. And another. And another. In total, at least 22 accusations were made against Watson by various women.

While the situation continues to play itself out in the media and maybe eventually the courtroom, many have taken to wondering what Watson’s status will be for the looming season.

Is a full-year suspension possible?

Is it probable?

This week Rich Eisen offered his thoughts on the likelihood of Watson getting suspended for the entirety of the 2021 NFL season.

“I think it’s quiet right now for a reason. You don’t hear a word from a lawyer (Tony Buzbee) who was on Instagram like he was a 16-year-old sophomore,” Eisen said.

“Every single thing was going on Instagram. You don’t hear a word from him right now, do you? Why? Anybody who knows the legal system knows that means something’s being discussed and you don’t want to upset it. “You could (say) settling doesn’t remove anything with Deshaun Watson. That’s correct, he could still get suspended, but not for the entirety of the 2021 season.”

The case against Watson is very complicated.

On one hand, there are multiple known contradictions and very shady practices that undermine some of the charges against him.

On the other, there is at least one very credible accuser – plus deeply troubling text messages and direct messages that have leaked out.

The NFL clearly has a lot of work to do in ascertaining whether or not a suspension is justified.

At the moment, it doesn’t look like one will be handed down. But obviously the situation is subject to change as the facts at hand do.
