Texans QB Deshaun Watson’s latest trade partners with status in doubt
The situation around Houston Texans star quarterback Deshaun Watson is still murky amid the ongoing allegations. With training camps kicking off in just a few days, there is still no decision on whether or not Watson will be suiting up for the Texans in 2021.
Well, according to Mike Garofolo and Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, there are still teams interested in the young star if he does end up being available for a blockbuster trade. Those four teams are the Miami Dolphins, Carolina Panthers, and Denver Broncos who have interest in Watson.
Another surprise team is the Philadelphia Eagles, as reported by Adam Schefter of ESPN earlier in July.
“There is no team out there, no team out there, better positioned and better armed to go trade for Deshaun Watson than the Philadelphia Eagles.”
So, with the situation regarding Watson extremely up in the air, nobody really knows what’s going to happen. The Texans reportedly want to wait as long as possible to get the most return on investment, but that is a slippery slope if Watson is suspended for 2021 or longer.
Training camp is close, and the investigations are still ongoing. Could Watson end up suiting up for Houston in 2021? Or could the talented star quarterback be headed elsewhere?
