Texans QB Deshaun Watson caught training Aaron Rodgers’ replacement
Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson may not even play in 2021, but he’s still keeping in shape no matter what. It’s been a while since we’ve heard any updates on his situation, but he was recently seen training with Green Bay Packers QB Jordan Love and Chicago Bears rookie Justin Fields.

In case you were wondering, all three share the same agent in David Mulugheta, who is one of the most successful in the business. Watson publically made it known that he didn’t want to play for the Texans anymore, but after the numerous sexual assault allegations against him, no organization has shown much of an interest in trading for the former Clemson star.
For Love and Fields, it’s a great learning experience for them to be able to train with Watson. Both guys are young and hungry to succeed in the NFL and Love might even get the starting nod this season in Green Bay if Aaron Rodgers continues to hold out. As for Fields, he is currently the backup to Andy Dalton in Chicago but could take over the reins if he shows well early on in the season.
The Texans meanwhile are likely preparing to be without Deshaun Watson because it seems as his off-field drama won’t be dealt with any time soon.
