On the same day that the NFL and its players’ union reached a settlement agreement that would include an 11-game suspension and a $5 million fine for Brown’s quarterback Deshaun Watson, the attorney representing the plaintiffs who filed lawsuits against Watson for sexual harassment and assault brought a damning statement detailing the actions of the league and commissioner Roger Goodell.

“By solving this case as he has done, Roger Goodell has proved one of two things: either his recent rhetoric was utter nonsense, or his bark is far worse than his bite,” attorney Tony Buzbee wrote. “My belief is that he is nothing more than a paper tiger. Today’s message to all victims is clear: If you think you have been sexually abused by a powerful person, shut up and leave. The NFL has certainly shown that it doesn’t care about its property and the organization.”
