Deshaun Watson had been waiting for this process to be over for well over a year. On Friday, a year’s worth of developments happened in a matter of hours. First, Watson pleaded the fifth to avoid any incrimination. Then just a few hours later, a grand jury that was just less than a mile away declared that Watson wouldn’t face any charges.
Earlier this week, Watson reportedly had ten teams interested in trading for him, but only four of them were revealed. With Watson seemingly back in the NFL, where he goes and when is only a matter of time.
What should happen to the quarterback behind him in Davis Mills? What if Watson doesn’t get traded? All aspects have to be considered as the NFL has been known to throw some of the wildest curveballs in the blink of an eye.
Watson still has to face the civil lawsuits, but it’s safe to say that Watson was waiting for this day.
