The Deshaun Watson trade rumors are heating up after the QB sent social media into a frenzy with a since-deleted cryptic tweet saying, “Some things never change,” right after Houston hired a new general manager.
Pro Football Talk then added fuel to the fire with a report that Watson has brought up the idea of asking for a trade on the heels of a disappointing 4-12 season. According to Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk, Watson has “quietly broached with teammates the possibility of requesting a trade.”
In such a scenario he demands a trade, his former teammate – Tyrann Mathieu – has a few teams he thinks that need to throw everything at the Texans to get him.
The 25-year-old Watson signed a four-year, $156 million contract extension with the Texans in September 2020, meaning he is under contract through the 2025 season.
