Watson was directly informed in December of 2020 that a lawsuit was coming.Wait
Wait. If I’m reading these posts correctly (and admittedly I haven’t been following them lately) DW knew of pending lawsuits before he asked for a trade? You want to blame the Texans for not identifying his “mental” health issue? It seems DW should apologize to the Texans and the NFL for being so selfish and manipulative for trying to screw them and the team he may have been traded to. that’s selfish immaturity.
In mid-January one MT and her boyfriend both contacted Watson's agency/lawyer at the time trying to get a settlement for NDA. Watson declined.
In February Tony Buzbee contacted Watson's lawyer/agent to discuss settlement of a pending lawsuit, which eventually became the first formal filing. Buzbee was disregarded.
Watson continued trolling Instagram throughout. With full knowledge of the above, he booked his final (that resulted in a lawsuit) massage therapist/victim appointment for March 5, 2021(!). Which begs the question: Why didn't/couldn't he stop when he knew of coming legal consequences for months, at least?
Texans training staff members had 'heard rumors' of Watson's bad behavior off & on for some time but nothing ever came of it formally. These complaints to NFL teams are not uncommon. They were directly informed in December 2020 of an incident, and security began looking into that.
But talk of Watson's bad behavior had been circulating through the MT community for incidences dating back to 2018. He had by the end of 2018 garnered a bad enough reputation among a number of MTs that was labeled an 'avoid', 'problem' client.
