Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson is not scheduled to be deposed in the sexual assault lawsuit against him until after Super Bowl LVI.

According to Jeremy Fowler of ESPN, the case docket states that Watson cannot be deposed before Feb. 22, 2022, which is nine days after Super Bowl LVI in Inglewood, California, at SoFi Stadium.

Watson is currently being sued by 22 women with the plaintiffs alleging sexual assault. All 22 women are being represented by Tony Buzbee while Rusty Hardin is representing Watson.

According to Fowler, Hardin stated on Tuesday that the three-time Pro Bowler is not engaged in any discussions about settling with the women who are party to the lawsuit. A Sports Illustrated report stated that Texans chairman and CEO Cal McNair’s personal attorney attempted to broker mediation between the two sides.

Watson has no plans to report to Texans offseason workouts as he had requested a trade in January, two months before the filing of the first lawsuit against him.
