Tony Buzbee isn’t a happy camper. Despite their being 22 active lawsuits filed against Deshaun Watson, there are “no restrictions” from the NFL on the quarterback’s participation in club activities, the league said in a statement Tuesday.

Attorney Tony Buzbee, who represents 22 women suing Watson, doesn’t buy it.
“To suggest the NFL hasn’t got enough information or has not been provided access, that’s just demonstrably false,” Buzbee told Mark Berman of FOX 26 in Houston. “I think if you ask the NFL directly they would have to admit that.”

Buzbee addressed the notion that the NFL doesn’t have enough information, acknowledging that in some respects there may be deficiencies but insisting that when it comes to the persons making complaints against Watson, the NFL has what it needs.
“I don’t control the corroborating witnesses,” he said. “Maybe they reached out to witnesses who do not want to cooperate. I don’t know. Obviously, the NFL has no subpoena power and everybody’s doing this voluntarily. I don’t know who the sources are or what they’re saying, but I do know my staff has spent many, many, many hours voluntarily, because the NFL asked us to, and these women have went out of their way to provide information. . . . My question would be how many times do you need to hear the same thing over and over until you draw a conclusion? That’s my problem with this whole thing and I don’t [care] if Deshaun Watson plays or not. That’s not my issue. That has nothing to do with this case. . . .
“It seems like most people are spending their time guessing whether Watson will play and with whom he will play and ignore the big elephant in the room, which is what about the 22, 25, 26, whatever the number is women, who had contact with him who are making some incredibly serious allegations?”

Does the league really know enough or do they maybe not want to know so they don’t have to make a decision just yet?
The NFL can put Watson on paid leave at any time, so we’ll have to wait and see how this plays out.
