Folks across the NFL had gave the Browns somewhat little bit of the side-eye when the team selected to deal for Deshaun Watson.
They gave them much more of 1 once they paid him $230 million guaranteed.
Now, former Packers executive Andrew Brandt is weighing-in on the Browns decision that appears worse by the day. Calling it “comical.”
“To think [the] Browns are reports and considering ‘Omg, we gotta get out of this Watson contract!’ is comical,” Brandt tweeted. “Reports of his behavior are not any different than what’s been on the market for a yr. Knowing this, they gave up 3 firsts and essentially the most player-friendly contract in history.”
Deshaun Watson is now facing 24 civil lawsuits for his alleged behavior. He reportedly booked appointments with not less than 66 different female masseuses over a 17-month period.
It’s a fairly stunning fall from grace for the three-time Pro Bowler, who was lauded for his leadership and character coming out of Clemson.
The legal side still has to work itself out. But immediately, things aren’t looking great for the Browns’ $230 million man.
