Deshaun Watson may want a mulligan on this one.
The former Houston Texans Quarterback had his introductory press conference with the Cleveland Browns, where he was asked about all the allegations.
At one point, a reporter asked Watson about why he needed to seek out 40 massage therapists, because pretty much everyone thinks it’s highly unusual for an athlete to have so many different massage therapists. Watson was a little uncomfortable answering the question, although he noted it was because of scheduling conflicts and networking.
“Well, I never – as far as the team, and when I say team, I’m not saying the Cleveland Browns, but my agency and things like that,” Watson began. “Forty is just over time. It’s not in one period of time. I’ve been in Houston for five years, so you to different people and that’s just how – like I said before, I can’t go into the details, but as businesses work and you move and meet different people and people have different schedules and block, you kind of meet people over time.”

He also credited Social Media for all his massages therapists.
#Browns QB Deshaun Watson said he can't get too far into detail about why he used so many massage therapists, but with this day and age, social media is a big business that goes into to it, so that's a factor in it

Of course Watson had a team masseuse he could have used.
Blaming it on Social Media is comical, whatever he’s trying to say.
This reporter just asked DeShaun Watson why he used so many massage therapists and he was like, "I can't really get into that for legal reasons, but I will say that nowadays there is social media." pic.twitter.com/zqzhFLJ17U
