The seventh and seventh-most likely teams to trade for Deshaun Watson:
The Giants are an unlikely destination based on the fact that they seem to be heavily invested in the future of Daniel “Danny Dimes” Jones. Jones has had some bursts of athleticism over the past three years but arguably hasn’t had much help until this season.
Acquiring Kenny Golladay in free agency and the on and off nature of Saquon Barkley has given the offense some life. Kadarius Toney has also contributed. The key thing here in this potential trade is the fact that the Giants have two first-round picks in this year’s draft (their own and Chicago’s).
This seems to be part of what Nick Caserio wants, and if next year’s first-rounder is added on, then this becomes a goldmine of a trade.
This could be the trade that sets Houston up for the long run.
Seattle had dealt with their disgruntled quarterback, with Russell Wilson being told to kick rocks after asking for some protection after being one of the most-sacked quarterbacks in the entire league. Wilson even went as far as to list the teams that he would love to be traded to, including the Chicago Bears taking the top spot.
Seattle doesn’t have a pick in the first round this year, but they do have first-rounders in 2023 and 2024. It’s not the greatest package for Caserio and the Texans, but maybe getting a swap of Russell Wilson for Deshaun Watson is a good consolation prize. While unrealistic, depending on how the behind-the-scenes gobetween Wilson and GM John Schneider, the Texans may pull off the rare swap.
Brandin Cooks gets added into the mix to help make this trade a done deal. Can you imagine that passing trio of D.K. Metcalf, Tyler Lockett, and Brandin Cooks?
