Texans: 5 players not named Deshaun Watson who could be traded
By Cory Kinnan
3. S Justin Reid
Outside of Watson, safety Justin Reid might just be the most valuable asset on the roster for the Texans. Still on his rookie deal, eligible for a new deal this offseason, and far outplaying his standing of a second round pick, the Texans can get a high priced return for Reid that could be in the form of even a late first round pick.
A top-50 pick is more valuable to a rebuilding team than a highly productive safety, so it is a deal Caserio will be willing to make if a roster deconstruction is underway. Entering the season with five interceptions and 15 passes defended, Reid played closer to the line of scrimmage this season. While his ball production numbers went up, his tackles for loss and hits on the quarterback skyrocketed.
Of all the players to lose outside of Watson, Reid would prove most detrimental to gameday success, however if a team is truly rebuilding the way the Miami Dolphins and Cleveland Browns have done, then they will not necessarily be looking for checks in the win column anyway. Keep a close eye on number 20, as he is a sleeper to be moved this offseason by Caserio and his team.
