Deshaun Watson trade hype started this weekend when Jay Glazer on Fox NFL Sunday said that the Texans have softened their asking price for former Clemson quarterback Deshaun Watson. The Texans were looking for a king’s ransom at one point, I am not sure how much they are willing to lower their price, but it sounds like there are several teams interested.
One team that seems to have the green light so to speak is the Philadelphia Eagles. According to Chris Simms, Jeffrey Lurie has given the green light to Howie Roseman to pursue a deal for Watson.
It is hard to find a franchise quarterback, and maybe the Eagles are not sold on Jalen Hurts, but shoot the Dolphins should not be sold on Tua either. That is another team that have to be looking into the Watson trade. I mean Watson really wants to play in Miami. I cannot blame him, no state taxes and the beaches. It makes sense, but what would the Dolphins have to give up?
The Texans no longer have leverage, and they should be considering every trade at this point. Watson costs a lot of money and is basically getting paid to sit on the bench. The Texans have to make a move, but I would not be shocked if another team is in the mix. There are several teams who will be losing a quarterback next year, one sleeper team could be the Minnesota Vikings. I mean could you imagine the Vikings pulling off a trade for Watson to replace Cousins? I mean it is something to consider…..
