It appears that the Houston Texans could be opening up to new offers for Deshaun Watson.

After Tua Tagovailoa went down for the Dolphins, Miami has remained the most likely suitor for the Texans troubled quarterback Deshaun Watson. A report from relayed a report from Jay Glazer that ” Texans’ “stance started to soften” in regards to their demands pertaining to a potential trade.

The trade deadline is November 2nd, and that’s such a long time to nail out a deal that Texans General Manager Nick Caserio can hammer out with Chris Grier and Dolphins owner Stephen Ross. Miami has a defense that can compete, but never gets any help from the Jacoby Brisset-led squad. Yes, they took the Raiders to overtime this past week, but they lost anyway.

Of course, trading for someone and then playing him is going to incite a public relations department’s apocalyptic nightmares. Are Dolphins bold enough to do it?

The Houston Texans need to accept Miami’s offer for Deshaun Watson

I’ve written in past Watson-related articles that with each passing the day the price is going to get less and less for the Texans. Whatever the offer is, take it. Take it and let someone else deal with the impending legal decisions.

If J.J. Watt, DeAndre Hopkins, and Jadeveon Clowney are all gone then Watson should go as well. It’s clear that he doesn’t want anything to do with this organization for the rest of his life. First-round picks are hard enough to come by, and getting two maybe three of them would put this team in a position to succeed faster than the current plan.

The negativity around this franchise must be eradicated in order to have less pressure on the team and to attract free agents back to Houston once the team starts winning. When the phone rings Mr. Caserio, pick up and take what you can get.
