“It had nothing to do with the contract, I didn’t know about the contract until I told my agent that I wanted to come and be a Cleveland Brown. That was secondary, that was after the fact that we spoke on the phone.”
NFL fans immediately called B.S. on Watson’s claim that he didn’t know about the $230 million contract before signing with the team.

So what drew you in Mr. Watson?? Was it the lack of wide receivers they have ?? Or is the the non existent offensive line
