Lawyer Tony Buzbee has said that Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson now has 14 lawsuits against him -- with a total of 24 women accusing him of sexual assault.

"Most of the cases allege the same, or similar, conduct," Buzbee said of the civil complaints alleging misconduct during massages.

The women accuse the football player of molesting them or of "inappropriate touching" during massage sessions. 

Watson has denied wrongdoing.

His attorney Rusty Hardin called allegations against him "meritless." 

Watson is accused of going too far while he was getting a massage from an unidentified woman.

"As a result of a social media post by a publicity-seeking plaintiff's lawyer, I recently became aware of a lawsuit that has apparently been filed against me," Watson wrote on Twitter. "I have not yet seen the complaint, but I know this: I Have never treated any woman with anything than the utmost respect. The plaintiff's lawyer claims that this isn't about money, but before filing suit he made a baseless six-figure settlement demand, which I quickly rejected."
