Deshaun Watson Injury Fallout: Browns Contract Issues and Future Prospects Revealed

Deshaun Watson’s first season with the Cleveland Browns began late due to a personal conduct policy ban. His second season was cut short due to a shoulder injury, the club reported Wednesday. So far, the Browns’ purchase of Watson has not gone as planned. To recap: In March 2022, the Browns surrendered six draught selections, including three first-rounders, to the Houston Texans for Watson. To get him to waive his no-trade clause and come to Cleveland, the Browns pledged to rip up his contract and replace it with a new one for $230 million over five years, with every cent completely guaranteed.
