Well, when it rains, it pours. That's what must be going through Deshaun Watson's head right now, as it seems like he just can't catch a break. If anything, he's going through the worst year of his life, that's for sure.
Not so long after putting the NFL on notice because of his trade demand away from the Houston Texans, Watson was sued by not one, not two, but 21 different women claiming that he sexually harassed them.
And now, to make things even worst, it seems like Watson has lost his biggest endorsement, as Nike recently announced that they'll be parting ways with him amid the disturbing allegations against him.
Nike Cut Ties With Deshaun Watson
“We are deeply concerned by the disturbing allegations and have suspended Deshaun Watson. We will continue to closely monitor the situation,” the world-famous sports brand said via a statement.
NFL Says They Will Investigate Deshaun Watson's Situation
The National Football League also broke the silence once and for all and claimed that they will further investigate this matter, meaning that it could be just a matter of time before the league puts him in paid leave.
“The allegations are deeply disturbing and we take these issues very seriously. Immediately following news of the first allegations last month, and as has been reported, we initiated an investigation under the NFL’s Personal Conduct Policy. We are continuing to closely monitor all developments in the matter," the league told Pro Football Talk in a statement.
Things aren't looking well for the Clemson product right now and all these situations don't exactly make him look innocent. Hopefully, the truth will come to light soon and this case will be settled rather sooner than later.
