Several Deshaun Watson accusers to have national interview with HBO's Bryant Gumbel


by - Assoc. Editor -

The Deshaun Watson saga continues.

Watson finished up his three days of questioning by NFL officials from Monday to Wednesday of this week.

However, according to his lawyer Rusty Hardin via Yahoo Sports, the NFL might ask for an additional day to interview him.

“Deshaun has and will continue to fully cooperate with the NFL in what is clearly a very detailed and aggressive investigation,” Hardin said. “He has voluntarily answered every single question over a long and tedious three days, and there may be another day as well in the near future. The investigators were very prepared, have obviously done a great deal of research and work on the case, and Deshaun has been incredibly forthcoming and honest with them.

“The NFL investigation continues, and the time frame for its conclusion is up to them. We in turn intend to continue to cooperate as we seek to show them and everyone else that Deshaun never acted inappropriate in any way, nor did he in any way violate the NFL code of conduct.”

Next week, several of his accusers are going public in a joint interview on HBO's "Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel."

"Several women who have accused Deshaun Watson of sexual misconduct sit down for their first ever national TV interview," the HBO press release read. "In the report, they detail the alleged abuse they suffered and share their reactions to Watson’s record-breaking $230 million contract with the Cleveland Browns. Soledad O’Brien reports."

The show will air Tuesday, May 24, at 10 pm ET.

Update: The Buzbee Law firm contacted TigerNet and released the following statement on the upcoming interview with HBO.

HBO approached us and asked if our clients would be willing to speak on the record for the Real Sports program. As was the case with speaking with law enforcement and the NFL, we left the decision whether to speak publicly up to the clients themselves. Two chose to do so. These women are the most brave and courageous I’ve ever met. This firm is extremely proud to represent them. During the filming process I was impressed with HBO’s diligence and insistence on fairness. Despite our requests, HBO refused to provide us before-hand the questions they intended to ask. And, I can tell you, hard questions were in fact asked—not only to our clients but to me as well. This firm has been trying and winning civil cases for twenty-five years; we are extremely confident in these cases. As each witness testifies in the pre-trial discovery process, the evidence against Deshaun Watson continues to mount. The walls, as they say, are closing in. We look forward to trying these cases in court as soon as practicable. We are very confident that, in the end, justice will be done.
