Texans reporter out of job after calling Deshaun Watson allegations 'a money grab' in radio interview

Aaron Wilson, the Houston Texans beat writer for the Houston Chronicle, is out of a job, according to Defector's Diana Moskovitz and Kalyn Kahler, just a few weeks after an eyebrow-raising interview with a Boston radio show.

During the interview with "The Greg Hill Show" on WEEI on March 19, Wilson repeatedly cast doubt on Watson's accusers, calling the allegations against the Texans quarterback a "money grab" and comparing negotiations between Watson's camp and Houston attorney Tony Buzbee, who is representing the plaintiffs, to a terrorist negotiation.

On the same day, Buzbee held a news conference announcing he was representing 12 accusers.
