REPORT: Panthers Would Have To Trade McCaffrey, Bridgewater, Robbie Anderson, & 4-Draft Picks To Get Deshaun Watson
The Houston Texans continue to show they have no interest in trading Deshaun Watson as we move closer and closer to the 2021 NFL Draft. The disgruntled QB could make it very uncomfortable for the team and force their hands eventually.
While Watson has requested being traded, he did sign a massive extension just last year. After the terrible DeAndre Hopkins trade, things have only gotten worse after the owner did not consult with him on the hiring process of the new coach and GM after he was initially told that they would.
The mere presence of controversial figure Jack Easterby is certainly not helping things either.
NBC Sports NFL insider Peter King thinks he knows what it would take for the Texans to finally listen to trade offers.
Peter King Proposal:
“A 7-for-1 deal. Running back Christian McCaffrey, quarterback Teddy Bridgewater, receiver Robbie Anderson and first-round and second-round picks in 2021 (eighth and 39th overall), a first-round pick in 2022 and third-round pick in 2023 in exchange for Watson. Houston might push for the inclusion of 22-year-old pass-rusher Brian Burns as a vital part of any deal, which would be a tough giveaway for coach Matt Rhule. Of course, McCaffrey would be tough too.”
A trade like that hasn’t been seen since the Dallas Cowboys traded Herschel Walker to the Vikings and received five players and six draft picks.
