- More lawsuits alleging sexual assault and inappropriate conduct against Deshaun Watson, now totaling 16 lawsuits in all. And we're hearing more from his attorney about the allegations. One of the latest lawsuits is by a woman who says, she believes the Houston Texans quarterback is a quote, "serial predator."

The lawsuit was filed today, Monday night, and appeared in the Harris County District Clerk's website this morning, alleges that Watson, quote, "assaulted and harassed the plaintiff by exposing himself to her." The incident allegedly took place in California. So, it's the second of the 14 allegations to take place outside the Houston area.

And just moments ago, Watson's attorney, Rusty Hardin, sent out a statement saying, "the tactic of refusing our request to confidentiality provided the names-- provide the names of the plaintiffs so we can fully investigate their claims makes uncovering the truth extremely difficult. Anonymity is often necessary as a shield for victims, but opposing counsel has used it as a sword to publicly humiliate Deshaun before the truth-seeking process can even begin," end quote.
