How latest NFL barbs aimed at Watson expose league-wide hypocrisy

Houston lawyer Tony Buzbee spoke at a press conference on Friday and reveled that currently there are seven lawsuits that have been filed against Deshaun Watson for misconduct. He also said that he's now representing 12 women and five more lawsuits will soon be filed.

Buzbee also mentioned his office has been in contact with more than 10 other women with similar accounts. One of the most surprising moments during the press conference was Buzbee claiming that one of the incidents occurred in the last month.

Finally, Buzbee said he's been in contact with HPD and will cooperate with their investigation and the NFL's. He also made sure to address a conspiracy theory that alleges the Texans somehow put Buzbee up to this based on him living in the same neighborhood as owner, Cal McNair.

Buzbee put that to bed saying, "I've had no contact with the Texans, none."

We will continue to update this story as more information becomes available. If you want more details on the first three lawsuits, you can read about them here.

Will the Texans be a Top 10 offense in 2024? Composite Getty Image.

Shannon Sharpe and Chad "Ochocinco" Johnson react to Bleacher Report's offensive power rankings, which have the Dallas Cowboys (9th) ranked ahead of the Houston Texans (12th).

Both Sharpe and Johnson believe Houston should be ranked ahead of Dallas, especially after the additions of Stefon Diggs and Joe Mixon. Outside of CD Lamb, the Cowboys don't have any playmakers on the level of Diggs, Nico Collins, and Tank Dell.

In fact, Sharpe goes as far as to rank the Texans in the Top 10 above the Bengals and Bills.

Finally, the guys react to comments from former Texans corner Steven Nelson, who was recently critical of Houston head coach DeMeco Ryans.

Be sure to watch the video above as the guys lay out why the Texans should be ranked higher on Bleacher Report's list, and much more!
