Deshaun Watson is one of the more polarizing figures in the NFL in large part because he was accused by over 20 woman of sexual misconduct.
There’s no doubt that Watson’s image has taken a major, major hit to the point that there are a lot of people that actively root against the Cleveland Browns against him.
Clearly, Cleveland’s new offensive coordinator Ken Dorsey has been living under a rock.
When meeting with the Cleveland media for the first time as the team’s new offensive coordinator, Ken Dorsey didn’t hold back on his feelings about Watson, calling him a “quality human being”, based on everything he’s heard about him.
“He’s one of the premier quarterbacks in this league,” Dorsey said. “And from everything I’ve heard about him, a really quality human being. So, I’m just excited about that opportunity.”
Dorsey had spent the last two years serving as offensive coordinator for the Buffalo Bills.
The Browns are hoping Dorsey can unlock Watson, who’s tenure with Cleveland has not gone well after the team acquired him in a blockbuster trade with the Houston Texans back in March 2022 and handed him a five-year, $230 million fully-guaranteed contract.
Watson played in just six games in his first year following an 11-game suspension due to the sexual misconduct lawsuits. During the time he was on the field, he threw for 1,102 yards, seven touchdowns and five interceptions while completing 58.2 percent of his passes and posting a passer rating of 79.1.
This past year, Watson was limited one again to just six games, but this time due to a shoulder injury that ended his year. He posted similar numbers to 2022, finishing with 1,115 yards, seven touchdowns and four picks while completing 61.4 percent of his throws and registering a passer rating of 84.3.
