Cleveland Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson, who was suspended by the National Football League for 11 games last season after he was accused of alleged sexual misconduct and assault by over 20 woman, believes that it's the media's "narrative" that played into his ruined his reputation.
And, you know, not the over 20 woman accusing him of sexual misconduct.
Here's the clip:
Speaking to reporters over the weekend, Watson said that "his story" has been "overshadowed" due to the "media directing and narrating."
"Things that people don't really get to hear about. Especially last year, it's been the media directing and narrating something else. [My story] has been kind of overshadowed. I had an opportunity to tell that story in front of those guys," Watson said.
Watson was investigated and never indicted on any criminal charges. He did settle with 23 of the 24 woman who filed civil cases against him out of civil court.
Despite the insane amount of allegations against him, the Cleveland Browns still went forward to trade for him and hand him a fully-guaranteed five-year, $230 million contract.
When he was reinstated by the NFL and after serving his suspension, Watson played in six games, completing just 58% of his passes for 1,102 yards, seven touchdowns and five interceptions. The Browns went 3-3 during that span and finished with an overall record of 7-10.
Entering his second season with the Cleveland Browns and after ample amounts of therapy and self-improvement measures, Watson remains tone deaf on the situation.
