Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson is reportedly willing to waive his no-trade clause for interested teams other than the Miami Dolphins. Josina Anderson reported Tuesday that Watson, who’s been accused of sexual assault and misconduct in 22 civil lawsuits and 10 criminal complaints, is for the “most part” willing to accept any deal ahead of the Nov. 2 NFL trade deadline.
However, the longtime NFL insider agreed that while he has only waived it for the Dolphins thus far, Miami’s offer is still not good enough for the Texans to send the QB over.
“..I’m also told Miami’s offer still does not meet the threshold to get a deal done. The price will not bend for MIA, or any other team!”

When it comes to the sexual allegations against Watson — Josina added this:
Although Watson remains available to play—he isn’t on the commissioner’s exempt list—but the Texans haven’t had him dress to play in any games in 2021. The team opted to start rookie Davis Mills after starter Tyrod Taylor suffered a hamstring injury in Week 2.
Head coach David Culley previously stated Taylor will return to the starting role once healthy.
On the field, Watson was one of the NFL’s best quarterbacks across his first four NFL seasons. The 26-year-old Clemson product has 104 touchdowns and 36 interceptions in 54 games. His 104.5 career passer rating ranks second among active QBs behind only the Kansas City Chiefs’ Patrick Mahomes.
When he isn’t throwing the ball with accuracy, he’s using his feet to ass 1,677 rushing yards and 17 scores on the ground.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
