Deshaun Watson was one of the most coveted quarterbacks on the market in recent memory when he was made available during the 2022 offseason. The Cleveland Browns were the ones who stepped up with the biggest contract offer, breaking records by giving Watson $230 million in guaranteed money, the largest guaranteed deal in the history of the NFL. Now, well fewer than 2 years into the partnership, and it looks as though the Browns could have some serious regrets.

Watson’s time in Cleveland began with an 11-game suspension. It stemmed from highly-publicized sexual assault allegations that led the Pro Bowl quarterback into becoming one of the most polarizing players in the league, and some Browns fans distanced themselves from the team, emotionally and morally.
He played in the final six games of the 2022 season, and didn’t perform all that well. He finished with 7 touchdowns and 5 interceptions and a sub-60 completion percentage, often looking lost in the offense. But it was thought to perhaps be a case of rust from being away from the game for so long, and there were high hopes and expectations for the 2023 season.
The Browns themselves are 6-3 and in the thick of both the playoff race and the push for the AFC North crown. But the success had been due largely to their #1 ranked defense, as their offense is ranked #17, specifically with their pass offense being #25. Watson has nearly mirrored his 2022 campaign, playing in the same amount of games this far, and his numbers across the board are essentially the same as they were last year.
