Deshaun Watson could be out of Houston very, very soon.
On Sunday morning, Ian Rapoport gave the NFL world the newest developments in the Deshaun Watson saga. After it was ruled last Friday that Watson wouldn’t face any criminal charges, trade offers have been the top source of discussion in the NFL.
The Carolina Panthers and New Orleans Saints are the two teams that have made offers for Watson. New Orleans being the newcomers in their pursuit of Watson, and Carolina has been a destination ever since the beginning of Watson’s whole ordeal.
Watson would still have to waive his no-trade clause, something that he only did for the Miami Dolphins. Watson can evaluate each team and have the final say of if he wants to go there.
Deshaun Watson to the NFC would be the best thing for the Houston Texans
The mission should be to “get Watson out of Houston as fast as possible.” Whatever team that is, whatever they want with him, the deal should be struck with urgency. Texans fans have been waiting a very long time for this rebuild to truly happen. Waiting for the best offer may not be the greatest idea.
Whenever that trade happens, the Texans could finally shed the negative energy around the franchise for the past year and make 2021 seem like it was over in the blink of an eye if they could start winning.
Let the bidding games begin, and may the best team win. It’s time for the post-Deshaun Watson era to begin.
