The Cleveland Browns‘ new starting quarterback Deshaun Watson is scheduled to meet with the NFL this week — before taking the Browns’ offense on a trip to the Bahamas as a team-building exercise, according to CBS Sports’ Josina Anderson.
Watson is facing 22 civil lawsuits from women who have accused him of sexual misconduct during massage sessions. Although two grand juries in Texas have declined to indict Watson on criminal charges, the NFL now has to determine whether Watson violated the league’s code of conduct policy.
The belief now is that the NFL is wrapping up its investigation of Watson because a meeting has been scheduled.
The Browns acquired the embattled QB from the Houston Texans this offseason and signed him to a multi-year deal worth $230 million, even as potential discipline from the league looms large.
It has not been made public which players from Cleveland’s offense will be joining Watson on the Bahamas trip.
