Deshan Watson again denies sexual misconduct claims

BERIA, Ohio ( Associated Press) — Cleveland Browns quarterback Deshan Watson reiterated that he never committed sexual misconduct and said he plans to keep fighting to clear his name.

Watson, who is facing civil lawsuits alleging sexual assault and harassment during private sessions by 24 massage therapists in Texas, stood by previous comments Tuesday, declaring his innocence.

“I’ve never attacked anyone,” Watson said after practice as Brown held his mandatory minicamp. “I have never harassed anyone or I have never insulted anyone. I have never forced anyone to do anything.”

Watson spoke for the first time since March 25, when Brown signed a fully guaranteed $230 million contract, regardless of his legal status. Since then, his complications have escalated with two more women filing suit.

Two grand juries in Texas declined to indict him on criminal complaints.

“I have been honest and I have been true to my stand,” he said. “I have never coerced anyone and I have never attacked anyone. This is what I have been saying since the beginning and I will continue to do so till all the facts come out.

Watson, 26, is also facing potential discipline from the NFL, which has investigated whether he violated its personal conduct policy. Watson, who could be suspended, said he was “open and truthful” with the league.

“I did everything they asked me to do,” Watson said. “I answered truthfully every question the NFL asked me. All I can do is be honest and tell them what really happened and I know they have a job and I have to respect that and that’s what we want to do is cooperate. ,
