If the Texans wish to deal him away this year, they need to do it by the deadline date of Nov. 2. If Watson is still on the lineup after that, the Texans will not have the ability to trade him up until March. 

One individual who has actually kept peaceful on the concern of a possible trade is Texans owner Cal McNair. However, that altered today when he was inquired about the circumstance while going to an occasion in Houston.

If Watson was going to bet the Texans this year, it likely would have followed Tyrod Taylor went down with a rib injury, however rather, the Texans relied on novice Davis Mills. It was currently rather clear that Watson wasn’t going to bet them this year, however after that choice was made, it ended up being one hundred percent clear that Watson wasn’t going to take a single breeze for Houston in 2021. 

It will not be unexpected at all if Watson gets dealt prior to the trade due date. As a matter of reality, Jay Glazer of Fox Sports just recently reported that the Texans have “softened” their position about a possible trade. Basically, the Texans weren’t taking calls previously this season, today they are. 

One factor Watson hasn’t been traded yet is most likely since of the Texans’ asking cost, which is a minimum of 3 first-round choices. Most groups most likely think about that too high of a cost to spend for a quarterback who’s not just dealing with 22 civil suits declaring sexual misbehavior, however likewise dealing with a number of authorities grievances.

As one NFL source informed CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora in September, there’s simply excessive threat in making a trade for Watson since the group that obtains him does not even understand if he’ll be enabled to play this year. 

“We’ve checked with the league, and they have no idea when any of this will be cleared up. So what are you trading for? Give up all those picks and he isn’t playing anyway and he’s making $35M next year and he still might be on the exempt list or suspended then? Why would you do it now? What owner is taking that risk?”

The Dolphins continue to be the one trade partner who makes one of the most sense, and some members of the front workplace wish to see the group shoot, according to CBS Sports NFL Insider Josina Anderson, however if the Texans aren’t happy to decrease their asking cost, it may not be a danger the Dolphins want to take, which suggests Watson may be stuck in Houston up until the offseason.
