Once again, Deshaun Watson found his name trending in the news this week as reports stated the Texans and Dolphins are working on a deal that would send the star quarterback to Miami, according to the Houston Chronicle. The reports say the deal could be completed by the end of the week.
NFL insider Josina Anderson gave an update on the situation that would essentially end all debate on whether Watson would touch the field for his new team if traded during 2021 season.
“An NFL league source said to me, that IF Texans QB Deshaun Watson is traded that they ‘don’t think that he’ll play right away because he’s still subject to the personal conduct policy…You don’t have to be put on the Commissioner’s Exempt List to be subject to the (P.C.P),’” Anderson said.

The Miami Dolphins are currently the frontrunners to trade for Watson. The NFL trade deadline is Nov. 2, so the two teams would need to complete a trade by then if it doesn’t work out this week.
Watson has been a healthy scratch for the first six weeks of the 2021 NFL season amid police and NFL investigations. The franchise QB is currently facing lawsuits from 22 women who say that he sexually assaulted them during massage sessions. Out of those women, 10 of them also filed criminal complaints against Watson.
If he does get traded, it would be interesting to see where Tua Tagovailoa ends up as reports have constantly stated that the Texans do not want him in a return package for Watson.
The former Alabama product may be traded to the Washington Football Team or the Denver Broncos.
During the offseason, Watson requested to be traded from the Texans, but he made his request before any of the lawsuits were filed against him.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
