Deshaun Watson lawsuits to add Texans as defendant, attorney said

The Houston Texans will soon be added as defendants to many of the lawsuits filed by women against Deshaun Watson, according to the women’s attorney – a move that will increase the stakes in these cases as legal thunderclouds continue to gather over the NFL quarterback.

The amended lawsuits will make the argument that the Texans, Watson’s former team, knew or should have known about his sexual misconduct during massage sessions and are therefore liable for what happened to these women, according to the attorney, Tony Buzbee.

Watson, 26, has denied wrongdoing. But he is now facing 24 lawsuits by women who generally have accused him of exposing himself and causing unwanted touching or in some cases coercing them or ejaculating on them during massages in 2020 and early 2021, when Watson played for that team.
