Houston-area volleyball fell just short this season even with two teams in the Class 6A state tourney. Hebron knocked off The Woodlands and Seven Lakes in the state semis and finals, respectively, to win their third consecutive title.

Class 5A was led by Kingwood Park, which reached regional semis. In the private school ranks, Episcopal won the Southwest Prep Conference while Concordia Lutheran and The Woodlands Christian Academy reached their state tourney.

ProFootballTalk's Mike Florio talks with Chris Simms about the latest information regarding Deshaun Watson and the cases against him. Lawyer Tony Buzbee told Fox 26's Mark Berman that a settlement is not close to happening, and the women that spoke with the NFL did not feel respected.

So what do we make of this? Florio's opinion is that Buzbee is making these comments to put pressure on Deshaun Watson and the NFL, because stirring up this "hornet's nest" will blow back on Watson and the NFL, not Buzbee and his clients. Buzbee must believe that stirring the pot could help nudge the cases toward resolution in a more timely manner.

Finally, Florio spells out how the game is played with lawyers. Meaning, Rusty Hardin and his team are going to make this process as uncomfortable as possible for all the accusers. According to Florio, that's right out of the legal playbook if such a thing existed.

Check out the video to hear Florio's full take on the latest information.
