Over the past few weeks, there has been constant chatter about a possible trade of Deshaun Watson has he reportedly is very upset with the Texans organization, in particular with Cal McNair, the owner.
Houston Texans owner Cal McNair has reportedly personally apologized to the franchise QB, per Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle. McNair privately extended his apologies amid organizational dysfunction for the Texans:
“McNair has apologized privately to Watson while publicly acknowledging the need for better communication,” Wilson writes. “Watson became upset at not being involved in the hiring process for a general manager and coach after McNair assured him he would. The Texans hired Nick Caserio as GM and are still searching for a coach.”
The 25-year-old superstar quarterback led the NFL in passing yards this past season despite the Texans finishing the season with a 4-12 record. The frustration with the franchise started when fired head coach Bill O’Brien was allowed to trade star wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins—Watson’s top pass-catching target.
The Texans remain the only team to not have hired their head coach yet, as the job is viewed as being a “very unattractive” job due to the Deshaun Watson drama.
