Deshaun Watson’s Personal Coach Ponders Why QB Can’t Get Traded After Watching Wentz Get Sent To Colts (TWEET)
Deshaun Watson wants out and everybody around him knows it.
On Thursday, the Houston Texans QB heard the big news of the day that Carson Wentz was being traded to the Indianapolis Colts after he also requested a trade from the Eagles.
Matthew Stafford is another QB who also asked for and was granted being traded as well this offseason.
Shortly after the news, Watson’s personal QB coach had something to say:
“What’s the criteria for a quarterback asking to get traded, then actually getting traded? Asking for a friend.”
The Houston Texans have stated publicly numerous times that they have no intentions of trading him, despite how he feels right now.
Deshaun Watson led the NFL with 4,823 yards passing this season, landed third in completion percentage and threw 33 touchdowns to only seven interceptions.
Despite Watson’s best efforts, the Texans finished 4-12, tied for the third-worst record in the league.
