The Houston Texans’ top-ranked Deshaun Watson destination: Carolina

After Miami formally shut the door on Watson coming to town, Carolina becomes the top destination for him to go to. The Panthers have been through some recent quarterback play that has been not very good at all. Imagine a potential Watson-led Panthers offense with Cam Newton as a goal-line/wildcat QB.

Matt Rhule has been feeling the pressure of the lack of offensive production (that’s going to happen when your first draft is all defensive players). As for the trade, here it is:

Houston gets Jaycee Horn, one of the 2022 Draft’s most coveted corners. Shaq Thompson will anchor the defense, and Taylor Moton can help the offense stay on the field. Carolina has about $8M for the cap hits after a Watson restructure. Houston has just under $15M.
