It looks like the Houston Texans could open up to new offers for Deshaun Watson.
After Tua Tagovailoa fell for the Dolphins, Miami remained the most likely contender for struggling Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson. A report of ProFootballTalk.com relayed a report from Jay Glazer that “the Texans’ position has started to soften” regarding their demands for a potential trade.
The trade deadline is Nov. 2, and it’s so long to make a deal that Texans general manager Nick Caserio can close with Chris Grier and Dolphins owner Stephen Ross. Miami has a defense that can compete, but never gets help from the team led by Jacoby Brisset. Yes, they took the Raiders into overtime last week, but they still lost.
Of course, trading for someone and then playing them is going to incite the apocalyptic nightmares of a PR department. Are dolphins daring enough to do this?
Houston Texans must accept Miami’s offer for Deshaun Watson
I’ve written in previous Watson-related articles that with each passing day the price is going to drop less and less for Texans. Whatever the offer, take it. Take it and let someone else take care of the looming court decisions.
If JJ Watt, DeAndre Hopkins, and Jadeveon Clowney are all gone, Watson should be gone too. It is clear that he does not want to have anything to do with this organization for the rest of his life. First-round picks are pretty hard to come by, and getting two maybe three would put this team in a position to pull it off faster than the current plan.
The negativity around this franchise needs to be eradicated in order to have less pressure on the team and attract free agents to Houston once the team starts winning. When the phone rings, Mr. Caserio, pick up and take what you can get.
