Report: Tony Buzbee Says He Spoke With FBI About Deshaun Watson

Tony Buzbee, the attorney representing the women in the 22 active civil lawsuits alleging sexual misconduct against Deshaun Watson, said he has spoken to the FBI multiple times about the Texans quarterback. 

In an exclusive interview with League of Justice founder, CBS Sports Radio and Fox Sports Radio’s Amy Dash, the attorney revealed that FBI agents from the Houston field division allegedly also "met with several of the plaintiffs in the case" and said to Buzbee that there's jurisdiction for the FBI in part because "most of the reachouts occurred via the internet."

To Mark Berman of Fox26 KRIV in Houston, Buzbee said, in part, he does not "know what their focus is on other than I know what I was asked." 

Last week, Berman tweeted that a Harris County grand jury investigation is being used to determine if there is enough evidence to bring criminal charges against Watson. Additionally, a source told Berman that the Human Trafficking Section Chief for the Harris County District Attorney’s office was sending out subpoenas for the investigation. 

In response to Buzbee's comments concerning Watson and the FBI, Rusty Hardin's office (the quarterback's attorney) announced a press conference at 10:00 a.m. CT on Wednesday. 

“Mr. Hardin will address Mr. Buzbee’s latest antics regarding the FBI in his continued attempts to ruin Deshaun Watson in order to force a settlement of his civil cases and promote himself.”

Meanwhile, Watson did not practice again on Tuesday, but head coach David Culley said the quarterback was there. 

"Again, every day he's here, he comes in, and he works. He does what we ask him to do and he's here every day and he's doing fine."

Watson requested a trade in January, long before the first lawsuit was filed, and practiced the first five days of training camp. He was not on the field the next five days, per ESPN's Sarah Barshop, but did return all four days of the third week.
