It has been fairly quiet on the Deshaun Watson legal front of late.

Many believed that both sides were reaching close to a settlement from the 22 women suing Watson, but it doesn't appear the case.

Attorney Tony Buzbee released a statement on Instagram updating the public on what his staff is doing.

“In response to the many queries we’ve received about the Deshaun Watson case,” Buzbee said. “I typically don’t respond to individual press calls because it’s easier for me to make one statement here. As I’ve said: There will not be a settlement, at least anytime soon. I have my best people on the case. That should tell you a lot about our intentions. Lawsuits are all about the work in the trenches. My 17 lawyers, under my supervision, are doing the legal grunt work it takes to prepare the cases for trial and another win. I’ve been doing this for many years, and, as the Texas Bar knows, I have rarely lost. And, these are very important cases — these women matter!! — and our team is doing what it takes in discovery and prep to try these cases to a jury. The press folks say we’ve gone ‘quiet,’ but the truth is we made clear early on that we wouldn’t try these cases in the press and now are doing the important work required for our clients to try these cases to a jury. It’s a lot of work! I would also point out that on a daily basis, our firm proudly handles cases for people who have lost loved ones, for people burned beyond recognition, for workers who have had their lives ruined, for people hurt, for people discriminated against, for people wronged, and for people defrauded. Our firm will keep doing that. Thanks for your interest! Stand by.”

Deshaun Watson's lawyer Rusty Hardin confirmed to KPPRC that there are no settlement talks ongoing and that the NFL has yet to interview his client.
