Deshaun Watson’s social media pages went dark after allegations of sexual assault from multiple women emerged in March.
It’s now May, and the Houston Texans quarterback has finally broken his social media silence, posting photos of his workout session to Instagram on Wednesday.
Watson’s Instagram photos come amid increased speculation that he may reach a settlement in his legal battle against the women who made the allegations. Rusty Hardin, the lawyer representing Watson, said his legal team has not initiated settlement talks, adding the plaintiffs’ representation, attorney Tony Buzbee, is the one pushing for a settlement.
Watson’s trade value is expected to rise if his situation is settled ahead of the 2021 season, which has led many to believe his latest Instagram photos were put up to entice potential suitors.
According to FanSided’s Matt Lombardo, the Washington Football Team, Las Vegas Raiders and Miami Dolphins are still considered top destinations for Watson.
