Deshaun Watson is willing to make things very uncomfortable for the Houston Texans if he does not get what he wants.
During Friday’s edition of ESPN’s “Get Up,” Jeremy Fowler reported that the disgruntled QB is willing to hold out all the way into the 2021 regular season to show the team how serious he is about getting traded.
“I’m told there’s a very real possibility that he could not show up for the preseason and not show up for the regular season if he’s not traded,” Fowler said. “He could incur $3 million-plus in fines during that process, but he does not care. I’m told the relationship is simply too far gone right now.”
Making things difficult to trade Watson, besides the team refusing to do so, is the fact that he has a no-trade clause and can essentially choose what team he wants to go to. The Texans, however, don’t have to do anything and basically call his bluff.
Play the game or he can sit out and lose money….or….he can retire, which is unlikely.
