The Deshaun Watson saga is biggest topic of discussion this offseason as the superstar quarterback remains committed to never playing for the Houston Texans again and the organization remains committed to not trading him.
ESPN NFL Insider Jeremy Fowler believes that if Watson is going to be moved this year, it’s more likely to come right before the draft and even laid out a scenario where an NFL team could not only offer one entire draft class, but they might even offer two entire draft classes:
“I don’t expect free agency to move anything here,” Fowler said. “Speaking to several people around the league, it’s more the NFL Draft in late April that could move the Texans. I spoke to one GM that said he expects the team to throw its entire draft or two entire drafts at Houston in the late hours of the draft saying ‘here, you can have it all if I can have your quarterback.’ Perhaps that will finally move the Texans to do something.”
Throwing all of your draft picks at the Texans might seem great for the team, but one look at their recent history, and you’ll see they are just as terrible at drafting as they are with handling current players on the team:
Something’s gotta give here.
