The Deshaun Watson and Houston Texans trade rumors are at it again, and this time one of the biggest national media outlets is talking about a possible trade looming.

When it comes to any talk involving Deshaun Watson trade rumors, one had to take it with a grain of salt so to speak because so much of it is opinion, though some is vague reporting with sources that may or may not be giving correct information.

This most recent talk about Watson eventually being traded by the Houston Texans comes from Jay Glazer of Fox Sports, who usually is a wealth of football information and one of the very best insiders in the NFL.

Glazer tweeted the following this week about Watson and a Texans trade:

Again, it seems like the Miami Dolphins continue to be the front runners, and if you are a fan of the Houston Texans, either Miami or the Philadelphia Eagles could bring the most return as both at this moment aren’t the best in their division, which means a possible high Top 5 draft pick if the two teams continue on their downward trend.

Philadelphia is 1-2 overall after three games, as they are third in the NFC East. The Eagles trail the Dallas Cowboys, who are 2-1 overall, and for the Eagles, they’ve lost their past two games entering Week 4.

The Dolphins are also 1-2 overall, though they are second place in the AFC East, even after losing past two games. The Buffalo Bills – who happen to be the Week 4 opponent for the Texans – lead that division at 2-1 overall.

Adding Deshaun Watson would improve either one of those rosters, and for the Texans both teams have draft capital available, that would make a sweet deal for Houston to finally make a trade for Watson, which would close that chapter of Houston history.

Deshaun Watson: More rumors about a Texans trade of Watson

Josina Anderson of CBS Sports has sources, and she’s reporting the following on Thursday about a Watson trade in a video tweeted by CBS Sports HQ:

Pro Football Talk has reported that Dolphins owner Stephen Ross wants his franchise to trade for Watson, as they tweeted the following:

Again, the Houston Texans and general manager Nick Caserio need to stand pat on making sure the franchise receives the most they possibly can for Deshaun Watson, no matter how long it takes. They don’t need to lessen their asking price, and they are fools if they do so.

The Texans aren’t trading just any quarterback, they are trading a QB under 30 years old who was one of the very best in the league in 2020 and basically since he joined the NFL.

Next. 4 QBs to replace Deshaun Watson on roster if he’s traded. dark

Now as everyone continues to wait, these current Deshaun Watson rumors seem to be heating up, and the Texans should get a very good return … or at least, that is the the hope once this is all said and done.
