Deshaun Watson’s NFL return to be attended by women who accused him

Houston attorney Tony Buzbee hasn’t been to a Houston Texans game in more than 10 years but has arranged to get a suite at Sunday’s game against the Cleveland Browns for one big reason:

Some of his clients asked to attend the game.

They are the same clients who sued Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson and accused him of sexual misconduct during massage sessions.

And even though almost all of those cases have resolved with confidential settlements, they still want to make their presence known as Watson returns to Houston to face his old team after serving an 11-game suspension for violating the NFL’s personal conduct policy.

“They thought it important to make clear that they are still here and that they matter,” Buzbee told USA TODAY Sports on Tuesday. “I was proud of them for that. I have made that opportunity available to them.  I haven’t been to a Texans game in over 10 years. But, because they are going I will go as well.”

Browns QB Deshaun Watson is set to make his Cleveland regular-season debut Sunday.

Buzbee said he expects 10 or fewer of the women to attend.

“I think it’s important to note each of these women is different,” Buzbee said in an email. “You can’t paint them with a broad brush. I would never encourage any of them to attend. Some never want to hear WATSON’s name again. Others have put it in the past. Some are still angry. Others are defiant. Makes me proud they want to stand up and be counted rather than quietly go away. Good on them!”
