Deshaun Watson situation ‘definitely stressful’ for Browns, says Kareem Hunt

Cleveland running back Kareem Hunt says the Deshaun Watson’s legal situation has the Browns in a precarious situation so close to training camp, Jenna Lemoncelli of the New York Post reports.

“Yeah, it’s definitely stressful for them,” Hunt said on Wednesday, per Cleveland.com. Wednesday also marked the second day of Watson’s  disciplinary hearing with the NFL over multiple sexual assault allegations against him.

“It’s tough because they’re trying to figure out what pieces they’ve got for the season and what plays they want to put in,” Hunt said. “There’s different plays for Deshaun and [backup] Jacoby [Brissett], different playbook, different things we can do at quarterback.”

Last week, Watson’s attorney announced that the former Texans quarterback agreed to settle 20 of the 24 civil lawsuits filed against him by massage therapists alleging sexual misconduct. Watson has maintained his innocence since the allegations were first made public in March 2021. The NFL, meanwhile, is seeking at least a one-year suspension, according to the Associated Press.

“I mean, I really don’t know too much about the whole situation,” said Hunt, adding that he’s focused on himself and feeling 100 percent after suffering calf and ankle injuries last season. “If he misses it, it’s a next-man-up mentality. I’m going to be ready to play, and I know the rest of the team is still going to be ready to play. We didn’t have Deshaun last year or the years before.

“We do [talk about it], but we’re more worried about ourselves. It’s a business, man, that’s the biggest thing. You’ve got to worry about yourself, because if you don’t you could not be here.”
