Folks, the NFL offseason hasn’t even fully arrived yet for all of the teams and it’s already off to a hot start. The quarterback carousel this offseason is set to be incredible with many big names potentially on the move. This past week has shown that the biggest fish in the quarterback carousel may be someone that nobody saw coming, Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson.
That’s right folks, I’m here to tell you something that will make Texans fans feel sick and fans of other NFL teams excited: The Houston Texans are going to trade Deshaun Watson this offseason. It’s inevitable. Their relationship is fractured beyond repair and more importantly, he doesn’t believe in the team’s vision moving forward.
ESPN NFL Insider Chris Mortensen went on to drop this bomb about Deshaun Watson this morning.
It sounds as if there’s some really deep-seated unhappiness there. In Watson’s defense, who could blame him for being unhappy with the Texans organization? It’s one of the worst run, if not the worst run, franchise in the NFL. Ownership has a horrible track record of hiring head coaches and general managers. The Bill O’Brien debacle is still fresh in everybody’s mind. It’s not a good organization.
Watson likely wants to go somewhere where he can win. The Dolphins would be a perfect spot for him and he’d complete their rebuild as the Dolphins would be getting a top five quarterback. He would have a chance to win Super Bowls there. Plural.
When is Houston going to be a Super Bowl contender again? It could be years before that happens. Watson likely doesn’t want to waste his prime playing for an organization that butt fumbles every single opportunity they have at being successful.
So at the end of the day it’s inevitable: Deshaun Watson is going to be traded this offseason. It may not be today, it may not be tomorrow, but he has played his last game as a Houston Texan.
