For the first time in more than 2 months, Deshaun Watson has posted on social media to remind everyone he’s still an elite NFL quarterback.
… and yeah, he looks good.

The last time we heard from DW was on Twitter back on March 16 — when he posted a statement to try and get ahead of the sexual misconduct allegations that were coming down the pike.
Watson denied wrongdoing and proclaimed his innocence — saying, “I have never treated any woman with anything other than the utmost respect.”
He added, “This isn’t about money for me — it’s about clearing my name, and I look forward to doing that.”
After that, the Houston Texans QB went radio silent — and his attorney, Rusty Hardin, has been doing all the talking ever since.
But, as the NFL season draws closer, Watson is clearly trying to remind teams — including the Texans — that he’s still focused on football and ready to play.
There are a few issues … the NFL is still investigating the sexual misconduct allegations against Watson from more than 20 accusers who say the QB crossed a line during what were supposed to be routine massage therapy sessions.
If the league finds he violated the NFL’s Personal Conduct Policy, he could be suspended — which could make teams nervous about trading for him.
Bottom line … no one knows for sure what’s going to happen with Watson’s NFL career at this point — but he’s obviously hopeful he’ll get back on the field sometime soon.
