Attorney: Watson now free to answer deposition questions


Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson will be deposed again today in two civil lawsuits alleging sexual misconduct or sexual assault during massage sessions.

Since winning in criminal court last week, Watson's attorney Rusty Hardin says his client is now free to answer questions for the first time and share his side of the story under oath.

In a deposition on Friday, Hardin advised Watson to invoke the Fifth Ammendment and decline answering questions. Then, a Harris County grand jury decided not to criminally charge Watson after listening to evidence and testimony from some of his alleged victims.

Watson is still facing 22 civil lawsuits alleging a range of sexual misconduct.

Watson is also reportedly set to meet with several NFL teams interested in trading for him with the Texans.
