Deshaun Watson has his name trending in the news cycle once again, but this time, it is because of another player being moved on the team.

On Friday, JJ Watt released a video saying that he asked and was granted his release from the Houston Texans so he could move on with his career elsewhere.

“I have sat down with the McNair family and I have asked them for my release and we have mutually agreed to part ways at this time,” Watt said in a video posted to Twitter. “I came here 10 years ago as a kid from Wisconsin who’d never really been to Texas before. And now I can’t imagine my life without Texas in it. The way that you guys have treated me, besides draft night. I mean, you guys booed me on draft night. But every day after that, you treated me like family. And I truly feel like you’re my family.

“… I’m excited and looking forward to a new opportunity, and I’ve been working extremely hard. But at the same time, it is always tough to move on. And I just want you guys to know that I love you. I appreciate you. I appreciate the McNair family for drafting me and giving me my first opportunity in the NFL.”

Owner Cal McNair would soon speak out on the greatness of Watt, but also take some time to speak out on their disgruntled QB and how he wants out.

Deshaun Watson has done just about everything to show that he wants off the Texans, but so far, the team has been reluctant to move him and it may lead him to him possibly sitting out the 2021 season.

Watson just led the NFL in passing yards with 4,823. He completed a career-high 70.2-percent of his passes and 33 touchdowns with a passer rating of 112.4.
