Deshaun watson : Wiki | Massage therapist | 20 suits
After having a productive rookie season cut short by injury, Watson guided the Texans to consecutive division titles in 2018 and 2019 and led the league in passing yards in 2020.
He also received Pro Bowl honors in each of his three seasons as Houston’s primary starter. He has the highest career completion percentage of all time (minimum 1,500 attempts), and is second in all-time career passer rating.
Beginning in 2021, Watson has been sued by more than two dozen female massage therapists accusing him of sexual harassment and sexual assault. Watson has denied any wrongdoing despite settling 20 claims of sexual misconduct.
Disagreements with the Texans’ front office and multiple sexual-misconduct lawsuits kept Watson out for the entire 2021 season and eventually led to a trade to the Cleveland Browns.
In March 2022, Watson signed a five year contract worth $230 million, one of the most expensive contracts in NFL history.
