What the Stafford trade means for Texans

This trade has reminded front offices and free agents alike about the value that the quarterback positions have and will definitely make a potential trade for Deshaun Watson much more difficult.  In comparison to Matthew Stafford, Deshaun Watson is on a different stratum of importance and value.

Watson is not only the face of the Houston Texans, but a budding superstar that is not even close to his prime. He is a top-three quarterback in the league and has franchise-altering potential. As the face of the new generation of players and a poster boy for the NFL, Watson would bring in significantly more than what Matthew Stafford’s trade brought in.

The Texans should not entertain any offers of less than four first-round picks along with a haul of second and third-rounders and some starters as well.  Watson brings exponentially more value than Stafford and it would have to require a king’s ransom for the Texans to even think about trading Watson.

His value and worth to an organization are immense and it is unfathomable that Caserio and the Texans organization would pull anything close to the “DeAndre Hopkins” debacle in relation to the Watson situation. So, for all of you Dolphins and Jets fans out there, don’t think that your franchise can acquire Watson for just two first-rounders and a bench player!
