Former NFL GM: Deshaun Watson trades amid ‘suicide’ lawsuits

While the 25-year-old is a talented quarterback, former Miami Dolphins and New Orleans Saints general manager Randy Mueller told NJ Advance Media trading for Watson “would be suicidal.”

On paper, adding one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL would help many teams, but according to Mueller Watson, legal problems make it difficult to trade.

Statements for civil lawsuits will begin in September this year. Watson will not be relegated until after the NFL season in February 2022, based on an agreement between the two legal teams.

“I don’t know they can fully check it out,” Mueller said. “I don’t know that the league would deal with their investigation, and I think they deliberately slowed it down because they thought it would take legal course first.” There are just a lot of open questions that I don’t think are [capable of being vetted] at this point.”

“His arrival is a good business move for him,” Mueller said. “It also starts the hours of some of these events.” This starts the class: what is the league and what will the Texans do? If he didn’t come, it would stay in limbo. “

He was senior manager of the Chargers when Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was suspended in six games in 2010 for violating the league’s personal conduct. Although he was never charged, Roethlisberger was charged with sexual assault by a 20-year-old college teacher. student.

After meeting with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, Roethlisberger was reduced to six games and he returned to his NFL career. However, Watson’s case is different, considering how many women have signed up.

“This [situation] “There are several other cases and they may or may not be charged,” Mueller said. “I dont know if [Watson] plays at all this year. I don’t understand how he could. “
