This past weekend, Deshaun Watson went to a Tuscaloosa bar and got a rude welcome when some Alabama fans - clearly still stinging from the Tides loss to Clemson - badly treated the quarterback.
Here's what happened:


Some social media reports claim that former Alabama linebacker Ryan Anderson and Wallace Gilberry, a former Alabama defensive end now with the Cincinnati Bengals, asked Watson to leave.

Now, as per TMZ, Anderson has stepped forward and claimed that's not what happened.

His publicist, Bob Broderick, said Anderson suggested Watson leave because patrons were getting hostile, and Anderson even offered to pick up his tab.
CBS Sports has Anderson as a projected third-round pick in the upcoming NFL draft.
