Developments tied to Deshaun Watson's legal woes continued to surface Friday.
NFL officials want to meet with Watson again after interviewing him this week in Houston, according to a report from Cleveland TV station Fox 8, and several of the Browns quarterback's accusers participated in an interview that is scheduled to air Tuesday night on HBO.
Watson met with the league this week in Houston as it investigates whether he violated its personal conduct policy.
On Friday, Fox 8 reported Rusty Hardin, Watson's attorney, said the league wants to meet with Watson again. Hardin did not immediately respond to the Beacon Journal's request for comment, and NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said, "We will decline comment as the review is active and ongoing."
Despite Watson being accused by 24 women of sexual misconduct during massage appointments and 22 of those women suing him, the Browns traded for the three-time Pro Bowl selection on March 18 in a historic deal with the Houston Texans. The Browns also gave Watson a five-year contract worth a record-setting $230 million fully guaranteed.
Several of the women who have accused Watson of sexual misconduct were interviewed for an episode of HBO's "Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel." According to a news release from the network, the women detailed the alleged abuse they suffered and shared their reactions to Watson’s record-breaking contract with the Browns.
