REPORT: Texans Owner Privately Apologizes To Deshaun Watson Amid Trade Rumors
Over the past few weeks, there have been non-stop talk of a possible trade of Deshaun Watson as he reportedly upset with the front office, most notably, owner Cal McNair for saying one thing and doing something completely different.
Houston Texans owner Cal McNair has reportedly personally apologized to the franchise QB, per Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle. McNair privately extended his apologies amid organizational dysfunction for the Texans.
“McNair has apologized privately to Watson while publicly acknowledging the need for better communication,” Wilson writes. “Watson became upset at not being involved in the hiring process for a general manager and coach after McNair assured him he would. The Texans hired Nick Caserio as GM and are still searching for a coach.”
The 25-year-old led the NFL in passing yards in 2020-21 while the Texans ended the campaign with a disappointing 4-12 record.
The discontent with the franchise started when fired head coach Bill O’Brien was allowed to trade star wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins—Watson’s top pass-catching target.
The AFC South club is still searching to fill their head-coaching vacancy, but the job is viewed as being a very unattractive spot due to the Deshaun Watson drama.
