WATSON WATCH

Here's the biggest point of curiosity with criminal complaint against Watson

Monday on NBC Sports, Mike Florio and Chris Simms react to the criminal complaint against Deshaun Watson that was reported on Friday. We still don't know if the person bringing a criminal complaint against Watson is also involved in the civil lawsuit, or if it's a different person all together. Florio believes this is the biggest point of curiosity with this case. Lawyer Tony Buzbee stated last week that he would not be involving the Houston Police Department, so if he had a change of heart he would have most likely said something.

If the person filing a criminal complaint against Watson isn't involved in the civil lawsuit, Florio believes that would be worse for Deshaun, assuming the person's story seems credible. The thought would be that this person isn't looking to gain anything financially, and is just out for justice. Florio also mentions that very often these cases don't go very far if the prosecutor doesn't believe they have a good chance of winning the case. Check out the video to learn more.

With news coming down this week regarding the Houston Texans and their alleged role in the Deshaun Watson situation, ProFootballTalk founder and former lawyer Mike Florio shares his thoughts on the Texans being sued by Tony Buzbee and how he sees the legal proceedings playing out.

Also, Florio believes that the outcome of these cases will come down to "legal duty," and the Texans will argue they had no idea what Watson was doing, and it wasn't their responsibility to protect these individuals that have no ties to the organization.
