If there are any teams any in the national Football League that needs help at quarterback, it’s the New Yrk Jets, Chicago Bears, and carolina Panthers.
On Thursday, Ian Rapoport of NFL network mentioned that the Texans have already fielded numerous calls from teams regarding a potential trade for Deshaun Watson.
According to Rapoport, the Jets, Bears and Panthers are expected to be among the teams to make a “strong push” to acquire Watson. The Panthers are a shocking team, seeing as how they signed Teddy Bridgewater to a three-year, $63 million deal with $30 million guaranteed back in March 2020. Rapoport says not to sleep on Carolina being aggressive in the market for Watson.
On Thursday, ESPN’s Adam Schefter dropped the news that Watson had made a trade demand weeks ago, so it came well before the team hired David Culley as their next head coach.
The upset QB has reportedly not taken the time to speak to new GM Nick Caserio or EVP Jack Easterby, but the team has remained steadfast in not wanting to trade him.
Just before the start of the 2020 season, Watson inked a four-year deal worth as much as $177 million with the franchise.
