NFL World Reacts To New Deshaun Watson Speculation

  NFL World Reacts To New Deshaun Watson Speculation Where will Deshaun Watson play football in 2021 (if at all)? The Houston Texans quarterback remains with the team that drafted him – for now, anyway. Trade rumors have been swirling for Watson for months. However, due to his legal situation – Watson has been accused by more than 20 women of sexual misconduct – […] The post NFL World Reacts To New Deshaun Watson Speculation appeared first on The Spun.

With the NFL trade deadline roughly a week away, Deshaun Watson is suddenly weighing "multiple options" with regard to where he will "play next."

According to ESPN, the embattled quarterback is receiving more offers from teams ahead of the deadline. Watson, 26, has a no-trade clause in his contract that he is reportedly willing to waive for a move to a team he sees as a fit.

The Clemson product continues to be tied to the Miami Dolphins, who are 1-6 with Tua Tagovailoa under center.

The Athletic added that the Panthers, who have been dismal with Sam Darnold as their QB1, have also become involved in the Deshaun Watson sweepstakes.

On one hand, a big trade seems like a long time coming since Watson first requested a release from the Texans back in January.

It is concerning, however, that multiple teams are interested in a player facing the allegations Watson is up against right now. Watson is still facing 22 counts of sexual misconduct and, per The Athletic, has yet to meet with the NFL as the FBI continues to investigate the allegations.

The Texans are willing to make that happen, though they’re asking for a lot in return. Texans GM Nick Caserio reportedly wants a combination of five high draft picks plus quality players in exchange for the embattled quarterback.For his part, Caserio doesn’t seem to be in any rush.
