Steve Young Predicts What a Blockbuster Trade For Deshaun Watson Could Look Like

Deshaun Watson has already showed his willingness of possibly suiting up for the 49ers with his comment about himself in their uniform.

Watson had an incredible season in 2020, throwing for 4,823 yards and 33 touchdowns, so naturally, 49ers fans would love to bring him aboard.

Steve Young would like to see that come to fruition as he shared his thoughts about a potential trade scenario during an appearance on KNBR’s Tolbert, Krueger & Brooks show.

“I would give two first-round picks for generational quarterbacks — these are potential Hall of Famers,” Young said, via 49ers Webzone. “Who are the generational quarterbacks playing right now? Patrick Mahomes, Deshaun Watson, probably Josh Allen. Like, young guys. Justin Herbert, very quickly. I would not trade Justin Herbert for less than that, even though he’s won four games or something like that. But there’s something about him that really gives me that sense.”

The hall of fame QB said that Watson is “one of the best quarterbacks in the league.”

At this point, we are just sitting and waiting for Watson to come out and say they he wants out, and it appears it may have happened behind closed doors already.
