The connection between the Houston Texans and their star quarterback, Deshaun Watson, seems to have soured. The quarterback may have arrived at a breaking point and could contemplate a trade request if the circumstance doesn’t improve.
Obviously, that launched a flurry of speculation and trade situations via social media, generally by fans who believe their teams ought to be on the phones promptly attempting to strike a type of management the Texans. That incorporates San Francisco 49ers fans, who, as indicated by a recent poll, may be happy to forfeit the future for the possibility of adding a dynamic player like Watson.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter expressed that Watson’s annoyance level after a trade that sent wide beneficiary DeAndre Hopkins to the Arizona Cardinals last offseason was at a two. The quarterback’s disappointment is at an all-time high right now.
ESPN’s Chris Mortensen adds that Watson should think about a trade to the Miami Dolphins, with Tua Tagovailoa and extra draft compensation headed to the Texans.
CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora apparently had a few exchanges with NFL executives who feel a deal between the Texans and the 49ers could occur should the circumstance with Watson “go nuclear.” It would include quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo and “several high picks” going to Houston in return for Watson (h/t to Patrick Tulini for the find).
La Canfora takes note of that an exchange with the 49ers would get Watson out of the AFC and rejoin Garoppolo with new Texans head supervisor Nick Caserio, who was the overseer of player staff in New England when Garoppolo was drafted.
Obviously, Garoppolo has a no-exchange proviso his agreement and would have to consent to any exchange. The compensation cap hit for heading out in different directions with Garoppolo is insignificant contrasted with the quarterback’s normal compensation.
