‘Ex-Texan’ Deshaun Watson’s future, according to Jalen Ramsey, DeAndre Hopkins
DeAndre Hopkins and Jalen Ramsey just went off on their predictions for Deshaun Watson’s future in Houston. The disgruntled Houston Texans QB’s name was dragged into the two Pro Bowlers’ appearance on Verzuz as both the Arizona Cardinals WR and the Los Angeles Rams cornerback each put out their own take on Watson’s messy situation in Houston.
Hopkins was the first one to drag Watson’s name into the conversation. The five-time Pro Bowler referred to Watson as an ‘Ex-Texan’ when he referred to the QB. Of course, Ramsey had to respond. The Rams’ star corner made things interesting by unofficially inviting Watson to come and join him in LA.
“Ya’ll know where he’s going to be next year…LA!” Ramsey said.

The interesting exchange between the two only makes things interesting as teams send in their trade offers to the Texans for the 25-year-old Watson. On Thursday, Watson has officially requested to be shipped out of the Texans this offseason.
After signing a huge $177.5 million four-year extension last offseason, things haven’t been smooth sailing for the Texans’ main playmaker. Amid all the controversy surrounding him and his franchise, Watson was still able to perform and showcase arguably his best season in the NFL so far.
Deshaun Watson finished the regular season with a career-high of 33 passing touchdowns for 4,823 yards – which made his this season’s NFL passing yards leader. He tallied a 112.4 passer rating which was good enough for him to be selected to the Pro Bowl for the third consecutive season. All these yards and touchdowns though were put to waste as Houston ended with a lowly 4-12 record at the end of the regular season.
