Watson’s New Deal is Nothing Short of Despicable
The deal that sent Deshaun Watson to Cleveland sent shock waves throughout the NFL. The Browns doing Browns things, opened up their treasure trove of draft picks and said, “Here, take it!” to the Texans while simultaneously turning to Watson and forking over $230M GUARANTEED!
But it gets worse…
The Browns structured Watson’s new deal in a way that would mitigate the financial loss for Watson when he’s suspended as suspected. The optics just aren’t right. The structure of the new deal is a shrewd one by Watson’s agent, yet a despicable concession by the Browns.
