Doug Gottlieb posits that the Browns' trade for Deshaun Watson may be the riskiest trade in the history of sports. They are paying guaranteed money to a guy who is facing 22 civil lawsuits and a suspension from the NFL, has had two ACL reconstructions, and didn’t even play last season. The chances this all works out in Cleveland are slim and Doug questions whether it was worth the risk.

Doug Gottlieb: “Deshaun Watson: that, to me, is the riskiest move in the history of sports... The Cleveland Browns have traded for a quarterback who has torn his ACL twice, didn’t play last season, and has 22 pending civil cases against him.”
