New Cleveland Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson is settling 20 civil lawsuits against him. Attorney Tony Buzbee released a statement saying Watson settled all but four of the sexual misconduct suits. The women who sued accused Watson of exposing himself and touching them inappropriately during massage appointments. Earlier this year, grand juries decided not to indict Watson after a police investigation of the claims.
Meantime, the troubles for the former Houston Texans quarterback may not be over. An NFL spokesman said the settlements have no impact on the collectively bargained disciplinary process.
