Former NFL player Shannon Sharpe took to ‘Undisputed’ and claimed his sources told him that not only does Watson want out, he is willing to play ‘hard ball’ and force the team to get him out of town.
The New York Jets have also been mentioned in acquiring Watson in a trade.
“He does not trust Cal McNair. He does not trust the front office.”
Watson wants out of Houston, and he’s ultimately going to get his way at some point. The Texans can’t just send him anywhere due to Watson having a no-trade clause and can stop any trade sending him to a team he simply does not want to play for.
Watson’s request came about 12 hours after the Texans hired a new head coach.
His unwillingness to speak with new Texans GM Nick Caserio or owner Cal McNair further lets you know how disconnected he is from the franchise. A divorce is imminent.
Both sides won’t be able to get anything done for almost two months as the new league year is March 17th and trades can’t happen until then.
