With new lawsuit filed, Kevin Stefanski points to research Browns did on Deshaun Watson

Jun 1, 2022

BEREA — Myles Garrett loves rushing the quarterback, but he's not rushing to judgment about new Browns teammate Deshaun Watson.

Watson led the Browns offense on the field Wednesday less than 24 hours after the off-field controversy surrounding him escalated.

Another woman filed a civil lawsuit against Watson on Tuesday, becoming the 23rd accusing the quarterback of sexual misconduct during massage appointments. The first 22 lawsuits were filed in March and April of 2021 when Watson was a member of the Houston Texans.

An All-Pro end and the face of Cleveland's defense, Garrett said character matters to him, yet he's keeping an open mind about Watson as the three-time Pro Bowl selection maintains his innocence.

“I don’t know what happened. You don’t know what happened. No one in this room really knows what happened, other than the people that were involved," Garrett said after Wednesday's organized team activity practice. "I can’t move one way or the other based on hearsay, so I just have to move with the character of the man that I know from day to day, and it’s a good guy from what I’ve seen, from what I’ve played against and from what I’ve see in the building.
