Deshaun Watson’s lawyer Rusty Hardin provided an update this week on the NFL’s ongoing investigation into the Browns quarterback regarding acts of alleged sexual harassment and assault.

Appearing on the latest episode of the Audacy podcast Payne & Pendergast alongside Leah Graham, a fellow attorney representing the quarterback, Hardin revealed Watson’s meetings with the league’s investigative team have concluded after fielding a question concerning the nature of the proceedings.

“I think now that it’s over, I can say that he subjected himself to four days of questioning by very professional, polite, intense, prepared former sexual assault prosecutors and it’s just like an interview,” he said. “There are no rules. They were free to ask any question, and we didn’t refuse to answer any questions.”
