REPORT: Houston Texans Are ‘Prepared’ To Keep Deshaun Watson On Roster Past Trade Deadline

The Houston Texans are not budging.

It starting to look like Deshaun Watson will not get his wish of being traded this season after ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported on Sunday that the Houston Texans are prepared to keep Watson past the trade deadline, even though many in the organization want to move on from the quarterback.

“Houston Texans are prepared to keep Deshaun Watson past Tuesday’s NFL trade deadline, even as many in the organization would like to deal him and turn the page, per league sources,” Schefter reported on Sunday morning.

ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler reports that the Panthers were “scared off” their pursuit of the Pro Bowl quarterback:

The only other team that seems to be in hot pursuit of Watson are the Miami Dolphins.

It’s looking more and more likely that Watson will not play a single game in 2021 and will probably get moved much closer to the NFL Draft where teams might have a ton of more information regarding his lawsuits.

The NFL’s trade deadline is set for Tuesday at 4 p.m. E.T.
