A Plan to Save the Houston Texans

  A Plan to Save the Houston Texans How to save the Houston Texans.While enough ink has been spilled to fill the Pacific Ocean writing about all those missteps and more, it's time to look ahead at how the Texans can salvage the situation. It may appear bleak on paper, but the reality rosier. Houston can put together a competitive roster. It's just going to take trade creativity and draft acumen to make it happen.

The Giants are not going to be in on Deshaun Watson or any other quarterback. As SNY's Ralph Vacchiano has previously reported, even if the Giants wanted to trade for Watson , they don' t have the same type of draft capital or young, inexpensive talent — like the Jets have — to send to the Texans that other teams have. Acquiring Watson would also decimate the Giants ' salary cap, considering they already will likely need to cut a couple of players in order to have some space for the upcoming offseason.

Deshaun Watson takes step in breaking up with Texans. What Matthew Stafford trade means for Deshaun Watson asking price. With numerous organizations expected to throw their hats in the ring for the Deshaun Watson sweepstakes, Orlovsky says the Giants should be the team to go all-in. “If I was Dave Gettleman of the New York Giants , I would take Daniel Jones, I would take Saquon Barkley and I would take three first-round picks, and I would call Houston and not allow them to get off the phone with me,” the retired Lions quarterback turned NFL analyst said on ESPN’s “Get Up” on Friday.

Many believe the New York Giants could be a legitimate quarterback away from NFC contention in 2021. In an offseason where Deshaun Watson could be traded, though, the Giants seem uninterested in upgrading at the quarterback position.

As teams like the San Francisco 49ers, Indianapolis Colts, New York Jets and Washington Football team explore the trade market, the Giants rumors are silent. In a unique offseason with some franchise-changing talent available at the most important position in the NFL, New York is prepared to stand by Daniel Jones in 2021.

While a trade won't be able to be completed until the new league year in March, plenty believe a separation is more likely than not.

Watson has a full no- trade clause, and he is reportedly very open to playing in Miami . If the Texans could get Tagovailoa and several high draft picks in a potential Watson deal, they might be interested. It’s still unlikely that he’s traded , and he needs to prepare as though he’s Miami’s starter going into 2021. Subscribe to Yardbarker's Morning Bark, the most comprehensive newsletter in sports.

A day after Deshaun Watson requested a trade , Texans GM Nick Caserio made it clear he hasn’ t given up on keeping the franchise QB in the fold. “Organizationally, we want to reiterate our commitment to Deshaun Watson ,” he said at Friday’s press conference to introduce head coach David Culley. “We have zero interest in trading the player. “We have a great plan, a great vision for him and for this team and his role on our team.

According to ESPN’s Jordan Raanan, the Giants won’t be among the plethora of teams attempting to convince the Texans to trade Deshaun Watson. Instead, general manager Dave Gettleman and head coach Joe Judge are more committed than ever to Jones.

“This isn’t just my opinion anymore — this is confirmed,” Jordan Raanan said, via the "Breaking Big Blue Podcast." “The Giants are not going to be in on Deshaun Watson or any other quarterback. Daniel Jones is their guy. Book that.”

On the one hand, there’s some understanding for New York’s perspective. Houston’s asking price even to consider a trade is through the roof, and the organization still believes it can repair its relationship with Watson. Given the 25-year-old’s frustrations are tied to ownership and team executives, it seems unlikely the damage can be fixed. But for now, the Texans are refusing trade discussions.

Around the NFL's wild QB carousel: Projecting the starting quarterbacks for all 32 teams in 2021

  Around the NFL's wild QB carousel: Projecting the starting quarterbacks for all 32 teams in 2021 It is not a stretch to say half of the NFL's 32 teams could have a different starting quarterback next season. Here's a breakdown of how the league's QB landscape might look after free agency, trades and the 2021 NFL Draft.Kansas City's Patrick Mahomes, who led the Chiefs to their second straight Super Bowl appearance, is one of the few locks to return.

Deshaun Watson officially wants out of Houston. The Pro Bowl quarterback has requested to be traded by the Texans, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported. Watson also owns a no- trade clause that he can use to his benefit to decide which destinations he would favor. That power is massive and shouldn' t be understated. Rapoport noted that Watson must sign off in writing on any trade before it can be consummated. The 25-year-old is a magic maker, carrying a hapless Texans team.

Watson — who has a no- trade clause in his contract — reportedly prefers the New York Jets as a destination over the Miami Dolphins — or any other team. According to the Miami Herald, Watson likes the idea of playing for new head coach Robert Saleh, whom the Texans r eportedly did not consider in their coaching search. The Texans' asking price for a potential trade involving star quarterback Deshaun Watson has been revealed.

With that said, it’s difficult to justify New York’s confidence in Daniel Jones. Ever since the team reached for him with the No. 6 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, he has let this franchise down.

Jones threw 12 interceptions and lost 11 fumbles across 13 games in his rookie season. He vowed to correct the alarming issues, but things didn’t get much better last season. In 14 games, he threw 11 interceptions and lost six fumbles, which doesn’t include the fortunate times he coughed the ball up and got it back.

It’s not like he is doing incredible things when he protects the football, either. According to Pro Football Reference, Jones had a 17.6% bad-throw rate and ranked 27th in on-target throws (75.2%) this past season. Even when operating in a clean pocket, per Pro Football Focus, Jones ranked 26th in quarterback rating (92.8) and 21st in completion rate (69.9%).

The Giants have a great defense, and Saquon Barkley will be back next season, which should complement the offensive line’s improvements. But an 8-18 record at quarterback, along with his other stats, shows very little reason to believe Jones is the long-term solution for New York.

Baker Mayfield had a fiery response to Browns fans calling for a Deshaun Watson trade

  Baker Mayfield had a fiery response to Browns fans calling for a Deshaun Watson trade Some athletes talk about how they avoid social media and haters and trolls and such. Baker Mayfield is not one of those athletes (just ask Colin Cowherd. Or JuJu Smith-Schuster). The Cleveland Browns quarterback might have seen some fans of the franc hise calling for the team to trade for unhappy Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson, who has reportedly asked to be dealt. On Thursday, he quote-tweeted a blog post on the subject along with a message: a (sarcastic, I think) “OK” emoji, along with, “Some of y’all ‘browns’ are funny.” I’m assuming he means Browns fans here.

Why Adawale Ogunleye wouldn't trade for Deshaun Watson originally appeared on NBC Sports Chicago. If you pull 100 Bears fans off the street and ask them the No. 1 position the team needs to address, and you’ll likely get 100 people that say “quarterback.” “We know in Chicago we like to play great defense, so we’re going to have good defenses. But have a quarterback that can get the ball down the field a little bit, have somebody that’s serviceable, won ’ t turn the ball over, and put points up on the board when we have to.

Go ahead, Jets fans. Dream big — Deshaun Watson big. The disgruntled Pro Bowl quarterback reportedly has the Jets atop his wish list followed by the Watson , a 25-year-old star, has grown disenchanted with the Texans and owns a no- trade clause, which gives him power over his next stop. The Miami Herald reported Watson is enamored with new Jets coach Robert Saleh, and wanted the Texans to target the former 49ers defensive coordinator for their vacant head-coaching position.

Trading three consecutive years of first-round picks, plus more Day 2 picks, is a lot to give up for one player. But the difference between this team with Watson vs. Daniel Jones is staggering. Unfortunately for this fan base, it seems the Giants can’t quit their faith in Jones.

Report: Texans telling teams they're not trading Deshaun Watson .
The football world is waiting to see if the Houston Texans will trade their star quarterback, Deshaun Watson. After the Texans’ recent 4-12 season that saw head coach and GM Bill O’Brien get the boot, paired with owner Cal McNair apparently ignoring Watson’s opinions on who should be the new GM, Watson has reportedly been unhappy and asked the team to trade him somewhere else. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Texans have been getting a lot of interest from teams who may want to acquire Watson, but they’ve been telling all of them that they have no plans to trade him. Some of them they’re not even bothering to tell.
