Deshaun Watson's Accusers to Sit Down with HBO's Real Sports
Share this

On Friday, HBO announced that several of NFL Quarterback Deshaun Watson’s accusers will be interviewed by Soledad O’Brien on the next episode of Real Sports.

The episode is set to air at 10 p.m. on Tuesday. Soledad O’Brien will conduct the interview.

Watson is facing 22 civil suits alleging various degrees of sexual misconduct from female massage therapists who worked on him while he was a member of the Houston Texans. In March, two grand juries declined to indict him on criminal charges.

The quarterback has steadfastly denied any allegations of wrongdoing. However, while the courts declined to bring criminal charges against him, the burden of proof for the NFL is far lower. The league has not meted out any discipline to Watson while the case has made its way through the courts. However, with Watson’s arrival in Cleveland and NFL the season fast approaching, the league will likely have to choose between suspending Watson, putting him on the Commissioner’s Exempt list (a provision that allows a player to still be paid but not participate in team activities), or publicly stating a reason why they will not take any of those actions.

It will be interesting to see what impact the appearance of Watson’s accusers on a widely-viewed cable network has on any decision regarding punishment by the league.
