REPORT: Deshaun Watson ‘Has No Plans to Be with the Houston Texans Anytime Soon’
The saga between Deshaun Watson and the Houston Texans does not appear like it will be resolved anytime soon.
Adam Schefter noted Watson “is one unhappy camper and has no plans to be with the Houston Texans anytime soon—if ever” on ESPN’s NFL Countdown. (h/t Garrett Stepien of 247Sports)
Also on NFL Countdown, Chris Mortensen noted a source said “that unless [Texans CEO] Cal McNair can fire himself, Deshaun Watson is not about to change his mind that he does not want anything to do with the Texans going forward.”
There has been no indication Houston will even entertain trading its franchise quarterback.
In fact, it was just last September when Watson signed a four-year, $160 million contract extension that runs through the 2025 season. Even after the team traded DeAndre Hopkins, the three-time Pro Bowler had arguably his best year in 2020 with an NFL-high 4,823 passing yards to go with 33 touchdowns, just seven interceptions and a 70.2 completion percentage.
