The Cleveland Browns have officially announced the Deshaun Watson trade and plenty of people are not happy with the organization for the move. 

After so much speculation about his future, Deshaun Watson is now a member of the Cleveland Browns. The Browns and Houston Texans pulled off their blockbuster trade earlier in the week, with Watson signing a new monster contact as well.

The Browns just announced things on Twitter, but to say plenty of their fans are upset would be an understatement. Watson had more than 20 women come out and accuse him of sexual assault, though charges weren’t filed after a hearing from a grand jury.

What has people angry with the team is that they know there are still legal steps to be taken for Watson. Just because no charges were filed by the grand jury, this doesn’t mean that everything is just going to be put in the past for him.

Those tweets above are only a small sample of examples of the reactions that have come in. A few Browns supporters aren’t happy at all, while there’s some who are supportive of Watson and are happy he’s the new starter.

With Watson now in town, the Browns will look to trade former No. 1 overall pick Baker Mayfield. Mayfield had plenty of ups and downs with the team throughout his career, but he just couldn’t deliver the way fans were hoping he would. Both the Indianapolis Colts and Seattle Seahawks feel like potential landing spots for him. For Watson, he’ll have to work overtime to try and fix his image in Cleveland.
