HOUSTON — In his first news conference as the initial lawsuit was filed from Deshaun Watson, Houston Texans general director Nick Caserio reported the team is”respectful of the legal procedure” and that he does not have”any remark” on the circumstance.
In the last month, 23 lawsuits alleging sexual attack and improper behavior have been registered against Watson.
“I understand [Texans CEO] Cal [McNair] and possession set a letter out a couple of weeks ago simply relative to the company’s position, relative to where we are,” Caserio explained. “So I really don’t have anything to add other than it is a legal procedure. We are respectful of the legal procedure and where this really is. So we are focused on now. We are focused on getting ready for the offseason program and getting prepared for the draft, so that is where our attention is.”
“While we anticipate the conclusion of the investigations, we state our strong stance against any kind of sexual assault,” the letter reads. “Our loved ones and the whole Houston Texans company are profoundly troubled by any kind of misuse and we all know this kind of behaviour”
When Caserio was asked Friday about possible contingency programs , he explained he was not likely to believe that way down the street.
“We are not going to truly get into a great deal of hypotheticals and also a great deal of speculation,” Caserio explained. “I am not really very good at that. Maybe someone else is better at this than me. If you would like to speculate, you should probably purchase Bitcoin and concentrate on that. So we are going to concentrate on the things we could control, which is sort of getting prepared for the draft and attempting to make the most of their chances to improve our group and construct our roster.”
McCarthy reported the league started an evaluation under its private conduct policy every month following the initial allegations and the NFL is”continuing to carefully monitor all developments in the topic.”
