On the same day that the NFL and the players union reached a settlement agreement regarding 11 suspension games and a $5 million fine For Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson, the attorney representing the plaintiffs who have filed lawsuits against Watson for sexual harassment and assault issued a scathing statement condemning the actions of league and commissioner Roger Goodell.

“By settling this matter the way he did, Roger Goodell proved one of two things: either his last speech was utter nonsense, or his bark was far worse than his sting,” attorney Tony Busby Wrote. “I think it’s nothing more than a paper tiger. The message today to all the victims is clear, if you think you’ve been sexually assaulted by a powerful person, keep quiet and walk away. The NFL has definitely proven their ownership and the organization doesn’t care.”
