During Tuesday’s press conference, attorney Tony Buzbee shared a variety of information regarding the Deshaun Watson situation. Among other things, Buzbee took aim at one of the 18 massage therapists who spoke out in support of Watson last week.

Although Buzbee didn’t name the therapist, he read from the statement provided by Jas Brooks, who said this in the broader statement provided last week by Watson’s lawyers: “I began providing massage therapy to Deshaun in 2018 and have massaged him at least 40 times since then. I worked with him once or twice a week during the season and as needed during the off season. Early on, he said he wanted me to focus on his hamstrings (he had a trainer that worked on his upper body) and just to work the lactic acid out of his legs. This included the groin, glutes and feet. He never asked me any questions and hardly ever spoke at all. In all that time, I never had a single uncomfortable or inappropriate experience with Deshaun.”

Buzbee claims that the massage therapist he generally identified sent a direct message that reads as follows: “I told you I stopped working with [Deshaun Watson]. Because I was hearing too much stuff about him messing with other people. . . . He’s been doing a lot in the last three or four months. I even told his ass he needed to be careful because his names getting around. I just hope don’t nobody call me to question me.”

Someone definitely will be calling Jas Brooks and the other 17 massage therapists to question them now. With two of the alleged victims disclosing their names and one of them appearing at a press conference and reading a statement publicly regarding her experience with Watson.

  1. Sad thing is this will blow over and in a year after the civil suit he will be starting in the league again making millions.

  2. This doesn’t end well for Watson. Even if he escapes criminal liability with so many accusers he’ll be tied up in civil proceedings for years to come, and what team would want to make this guy the face of their franchise

  3. When you put the names, faces and voices to some of these allegations it’s heartbreaking. Multiple criminal complaints now as well and possibly more coming. The league nor Deshaun can afford another damaging presser like today.
