Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson was not indicted on Thursday after a grand jury in Brazoria County, Texas heard a single criminal complaint from a woman who alleged Watson committed sexual misconduct.

“After a careful and thorough review of the facts and evidence documented in the reports prepared by the Brazoria County Sheriff’s Office and the Houston Police Department, as well as hearing testimony from witnesses, the Grand Jury for Brazoria County has declined to charge Deshaun Watson with any crimes,” Brazoria County District Attorney Tom Selleck said in a statement, via the Houston Chronicle. “Accordingly, this matter is closed.”

Watson was previously not indicted on nine criminal complaints in Harris County. Once that happened, NFL teams began in earnest to present their trade offers to the Texans and Watson.

“We continue to closely monitor all developments in the matter which remains under review of the personal conduct policy,” the NFL said in a statement.

The Brazoria County grand jury was considering a criminal complaint from a woman who claimed that Watson ejaculated on her during a massage therapy session in November 2020.

The Browns had Watson in for a physical on Thursday and he is expected to have an introductory press conference with the organization on Friday.

  1. Just when you think the Browns might not be the Browns anymore, they prove that they are still the Browns. This will not end well.

  2. Credit to the Browns for improving their team. They finally realized Baker’s erratic play was a liability.

  3. The grand jury decided having to play for the Browns was enough punishment….

    Shame we the public can’t see the evidence.
    it doesn’t matter as people have found him guilty in the court of public opinion. Isn’t that enough?

  5. In this day and age, if there was one ounce of proof he’d be awaiting trial. Probably in prison with no bail. There is obviously absolutely nothing to go on. This is in the news because Buzbee wants to get paid. If I’m DeShaun I’m not settling anything. Especially now. And in these days of texts, emails, camera phones, security cameras, and all the tech tools there is nothing on record of him doing anything wrong anywhere? I get 22 complaints is hard to overlook, but I’m a show me the proof guy because everybody (even pro athletes) are innocent until PROVEN guilty.

    Considering two grand juries have now declined to charge Watson with a crime clearly the grand jury also wished they could see the evidence because clearly they weren’t shown it either.
