Molly Qerim Says Deshaun Watson’s $230 Million Guaranteed Contract is a Slap in the Face of Women

It was a bit of a shocker but Deshaun Watson announced he was going to sign with the Browns and even more of a shocker, he signed a $230 million contract that’s fully guaranteed.

The news also made a lot of people, mostly women, and rightfully so, mad because he got that contract after 22 women accused him of sexual harassment/assault.

First Take’s Molly Qerim particularly criticized Watson’s contract and said it was a slap in the face to all women saying

“If he’s losing these cases, he should not be playing this entire season, maybe two seasons,” Qerim continued. “And that’s why he only loses a million dollars because they know a punishment might come down. A million dollars when you’re about to get $229 million? That’s a SLAP IN THE FACE to all women everywhere…they protected him so he gets all his money.”

Watson was cleared of any criminal charges but still has the civil cases to deal with and will have a possible suspension to deal with. This just shows that when you’re really good at something it rarely matters what you do wrong or are accused of doing wrong.

Here is what the Browns had to say about their investigation into Watson that didn’t include speaking to any of the women who have accused him. 

“We spent a tremendous amount of time exploring and investigating the opportunity to trade for Deshaun Watson. We are acutely aware and empathetic to the highly personal sentiments expressed about this decision. Our team’s comprehensive evaluation process was of utmost importance due to the sensitive nature of his situation and the complex factors involved. We also understand there are still some legal proceedings that are ongoing and we will respect due process. It was pivotal that we, along with Andrew Berry and Kevin Stefanski, meet with Deshaun to have a straightforward dialogue, discuss our priorities, and hear directly from him on how he wants to approach his career on and off the field. He was humble, sincere, and candid. In our conversations, Deshaun detailed his commitment to leading our team; he understands and embraces the hard work needed to build his name both in the community and on the field. Those in-depth conversations, the extensive evaluation process, his dedication to being a great teammate and devotion to helping others within the NFL, within the community, and through his charitable initiatives provided the foundation for us to pursue Deshaun. We are confident in Deshaun and excited about moving forward with him as our quarterback and supporting his genuine and determined efforts.”
