The lawsuit filed today alleges that the Houston Texans, “were aware of Watson’s alleged behavior during message therapy sessions and the individuals within the Texas organization knew or should have known of Watson’s conduct.”

The lawsuit also goes on to accuse the Texans of providing Watson with “rooms set up for him at the Houstonian Hotel, massage tables provided to him for private massage sessions, and an NDA provided to him from the head of Texans’ security.”
