Six new complaints against Deshaun Watson

It is now 13. On Monday, six new civil proceedings were launched against Deshaun Watson (QB), again for sexual assault. This brings the total to thirteen.

The facts are still quite similar. Massage appointments, taken on Instagram or even directly in spas. Watson who would ask to be treated close to the genitals, before attempting to touch the masseuse with his penis. In one of the proceedings launched on Monday, he is notably accused of trying to force a woman to give him a fellatio. Two others accuse him of having ejaculated during a session, including one on his face. Watson is also accused of touching the buttocks and genitals of another woman and masturbating in front of her.

The most recent charges relate to facts that allegedly took place in early March 2021.

As a reminder, the NFL contacted the lawyer for the alleged victims to investigate.

Michael Brockers apologized to Jared Goff

He hailed the arrival of Matthew Stafford (QB) to the Rams as an “improvement” to the position of quarterback. But a few days later Michael Brockers (DL) reunited with Jared Goff (QB) at Lions after also being traded. The necessary adjustment has taken place, the two men have settled their differences and all is well in Detroit.

“I just wanted to go see him, like a man, and explain to him that I have enormous respect for him, that it wasn’t a personal attack, that I was just trying to motivate the Rams fan base,” he said. Brockers explained to TheAthletic.com.

Green Bay talks to Rodgers about his contract

We know that relations are still not looking good between the quarterback and his management. We’re going to have to walk on eggshells to satisfy Aaron Rodgers. He wants sporting and financial security. The franchise seeks to afford a financial margin below the salary cap. According to Mike Silver (NFL Network), Green Bay is working to restructure the league’s triple MVP contract. It remains to be seen whether this is a transformation of the base salary into a signing bonus or something more complex by adding cancellable years to spread the payroll of Aaron Rodgers’ contract. The issue of number 12 will still be talked about for a little while and the name of Jordan Love will be associated with the future of the franchise. Whether that will be in 2022 or later remains to be seen.

Baltimore recovers salary cap

The Ravens are reclaiming space in his salary cap by handling the contracts of Calais Campbell (DE) and Brandon Williams (DT). Field Yates (ESPN) announces that the two operations convert salary base into signing bonuses and recover $ 4.5 million: $ 3 million for Campbell and 1.5 million for Williams. Some money to continue strengthening the Ravens team in the weeks to come.

Video review: more power for officials in the stadium

According to NBC Sports, the owners of the league will vote in a few weeks to change the rules of the video review. The idea would be to give more power to the officials present in the stadium. They currently have prerogatives during the last two minutes of half-time, but their capacity would be extended to the whole match. They could thus comment on receptions / non-receptions, downs by contact or line edge calls. In addition, the coaches would retain their rights to review.

The desire to avoid controversy therefore seems to prevail over the fear of seeing the game slowed down by more regular replays.

Robert Kraft: « The spending madness has been exciting »

Rather known as a frugal club, New England gave in to a buying frenzy that the franchise hadn’t seen in the open market for a long time. With $ 130 million guaranteed in a matter of days, the Patriots have taken advantage of their large payroll during a meager year in the league. Robert Kraft (owner) confirmed to SI.com that this spending madness had been « exciting ».

“Look, we want to win. We used to win all the time. We were spoiled rotten. And that’s our goal… (The free walk) was a chance for us to recharge. We’ve never done that in all the years I’ve owned the team. While we were looking to recruit players, normally in the open market you would be competing with 10 or 12 teams. This year there were 2 or 3.

“Look, we won’t know until the fall. We always laugh at the people who make the headlines in March. But now, I think we really improved our team. «

“It was awesome. I told him I’ve been a fan for a very long time, ”Bourne told NESN and the Providence Journal. “I know he’s going to have a great year. I’m just excited to play with him. […] I believe in Cam Newton, he’s gonna rip. « 

Frank Reich: « Carson Wentz always has what it takes »

Before deciding to set up an exchange for Carson Wentz (QB), Frank Reich (HC, Colts) revised his videos on the young pitcher. His work has convinced him that Wentz still has what it takes to win in the NFL.

“All there was to do was go back to the 2019 videos. With four games to go, the Eagles had to take it all,” Reich told SI.com. “And not only did they get the card, but in every one of those games, if I remember the videos correctly, Carson had to play really well in the second half. He played a big role in this team’s victory in the second half. « 

“Now it’s team wins, team efforts, it wasn’t a one-man show. But Carson pulled off the actions a quarterback needs to pull off when you need four straight wins to get to the playoffs. He did, and it wasn’t in 2017. It was in 2019. So in my mind, that just confirmed to me that this guy still has what it takes. « 

Patrick Peterson: two hours, packed, it’s weighed!
