After a sixteenth civil suit, Deshaun Watson’s career may be over
We’ve bided our time before bringing up the situation with Deshaun Watson. But after a sixteenth civil suit, we decided we can’t wait any longer.
Watson, one of the most highly-respected players in the NFL, faces 16 civil suits alleging he’s a serial predator. In the suits, women massage therapists allege Watson forced them to do things that either border on sexual assault or were sexual assault.
We won’t go into detail. But we will write that everything the women describe points to a pattern. The latest suit alleges an incident occurred this month on March 5.
The problem for the prosecution, of course, is that everything is a he said – she said situation. The problem for Watson? Lawyers for the women say they’ve got digital paper trails for, we’re assuming, every alleged incident.
That’s not a good thing if you’re Watson or the Texans. Also, the sheer number of women alleging improper action on Watson’s part is mind-boggling. It’s tough to believe that all 16 are lying.
The Houston Texans are beside themselves. They have no idea what to do. The Texans may have to cut Watson over the allegations. Roger Goodell must at least consider suspending Watson.
Goodell sent Adrian Peterson to the bench for a year for hitting his kid with a switch. If Goodell is willing to get involved with how NFL players raise their kids, why wouldn’t he get involved with something like this?
Are the Jets seriously considering sticking with Sam Darnold for the 2021 season?
The Jets were one of the teams willing to trade for Deshaun Watson. In hindsight, the Texans flubbed by not at least considering a trade.
Now, NYJ is thinking of sticking with Sam Darnold. So far, NYJ has had a great offseason. They hired a terrific coach in former San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator Robert Saleh.
New GM Joe Douglas has already acquired DT Sheldon Rankins, TE Tyler Kroft, S LaMarcus Joyner, OL Dan Feeney, WR Keenan Cole, DB Justin Hardee, LB Jarrad Davis, WR Corey Davis, and DE Carl Lawson.
Already, New York is a much better team this season than they were last season. Also, teams are hot for the second-pick. The Carolina Panthers, Chicago Bears, Detroit Lions, New England Patriots, and Washington Football Team covet the skills quarterbacks Zach Wilson and Justin Fields bring to the football field. NYJ could trade the second pick and for a king’s ransom.
Sam Darnold has shown flashes in the past. He deserves a shot to play for an organization that wants to win. So far, Douglas’ and Saleh’s moves have shown both want to win.
Even after defections, New Orleans may be top overlay to win Super Bowl 56
The odds on the New Orleans Saints make them a co-seventh choice with the Cleveland Browns to win the Super Bowl. The Saints have seen defections since the start of free agency, but at +1800, New Orleans may be the best overlay choice on the board.
Resigning Jameis Winston is huge. Winston should start at quarterback, which means Sean Payton could use Taysom Hill the way he likes, in the wildcat and spelling Winston on certain plays.
One of the best offensive lines remains in tact and most of the starters are back on defense. The Saints lost DE Trey Hendrickson to the Cincinnati Bengals, but as well as Hendrickson played last season, Marcus Davenport is the starter.
Who knows? Maybe, Winston at quarterback makes the Saints’ offense more potent than it was with Drew Brees under center. Brees’ skills had diminished considerably the past couple of seasons and in 2019, Winston’s last as a starter, Jameis threw 33 TD passes and for over 5,000 yards.
If Winston returns to that form, and protects the football by not throwing interceptions, he could have an all-pro season in Payton’s system. It’s early, but at +1800 New Orleans looks like a great play to win Super Bowl 56.
