- Deshaun Watson is now responding to a reported lawsuit by Houston attorney Tony Buzbee.

The message was posted on the Texans quarterback's social media page saying, quote, "As a result of a social media post by a publicity seeking plaintiff's lawyer, I recently became aware of a lawsuit that has apparently been filed against me. I haven't yet seen the complaint, but I know this, I have never treated any woman with anything other than the utmost respect. The plaintiff's lawyer claims this isn't about money, but before filing the suit, he made a baseless six figure settlement demand, which I quickly rejected. Unlike him, this isn't about money for me. It's about clearing my name, and I look forward to doing that."

The post Watson was referring to is on Buzbee's social media pages, and it says, in part, quote, "I am extremely proud to represent those who have no perceived power against those who have perceived power. Too many times, women have put up with behavior that we all know no one should put up with. The case we just filed against Watson isn't about money, it's about dignity. But Buzbee did not give any specifics of the lawsuit in his post. We have reached out to both sides, and we are trying to get a copy of the lawsuit, which we could not find online.
