Well, this isn’t going to make Matt Rhule feel any better.
The Carolina Panthers really want Deshaun Watson, so much so, that they are rumored to have made a trade offer for him and are likely to meet him soon.
NFL Insider Benjamin Allbright added even more to the story when he stated the Panthers owner wants Watson so bad that he would actually let him pick the new head coach of the team.
“Tepper told people close to Deshaun Watson: I will let him name the next head coach.”
Ellis would delete that tweet and post it over again:
On Friday, a Harris County (Texas) grand jury did not find enough evidence to charge Watson with a crime following allegations of sexual misconduct stemming from massage therapy sessions.
The 26-year-old is also facing 22 civil lawsuits, but Friday’s news paved the way for accelerated trade discussions for Watson, who remains under NFL investigation and is subject to potential discipline under the league’s personal-conduct policy.
Watson requested to be traded from the Texans prior to the allegations, so the Texans had him inactive in 2021.
