Deshaun Watson: NFL officials plan to meet with former Houston Texans QB in Texas to conduct investigation into personal conduct

CLEVELAND, Ohio — Cleveland Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson will meet with NFL officials in Texas, a person familiar with the plans told The Associated Press on Monday.

Watson, who is facing 22 civil lawsuits from massage therapists accusing him of sexual misconduct, is scheduled to meet with league officials this week, said the person, who spoke on condition of anonymity due to the sensitivity of the situation.

Watson could be fined by the league, which is independently investigating whether the 26-year-old breached his personal conduct guidelines. Commissioner Roger Goodell said on April 28 there was no timeframe for a possible verdict on Watson.

Reporter Josina Anderson was the first to report on the meeting on Twitter.

“We have no update and will not be commenting on this tweet,” league spokesman Brian McCarthy said in an email to AP. “There is no timeline as the review is active and ongoing.”

watson signed a fully guaranteed $230 million deal in March with the Browns, who outbid several teams and signed as a three-time Pro Bowl QB despite his ongoing legal position. Two grand juries in Texas declined Watson to be charged over criminal charges filed by the women, but civil cases remain open.

Watson has testified on several of them, and so far he hasn’t missed any of Cleveland’s offseason programs. Watson has denied assaulting the women and said all sex was consensual.

With his future with the Browns remaining uncertain, Watson invites some of his new teammates over to the Bahamas for a weekend to socialize and do fieldwork. It is not yet known which players will embark on the upcoming journey with Watson.

Last month, cornerback Denzel Ward said Watson and All-Pro defensive end Myles Garrett were planning trips for the Browns offense and defense.
