According to someone close to the star quarterback, him losing money is not enough to convince him to rock the jersey for the team ever again.
Peter King appeared on The Rich Eisen Show this week and revealed that he spoke to someone close to the quarterback.
“One of Deshaun Watson’s friends, somebody close to him, told me this week that the money is not going to mean anything to Deshaun,” King shared. “That if he says that he’s not playing for the Texans, he sad ‘I think you can take it to the bank.’”
“So my guess is, I assume it’s going to happen before the draft, but maybe it doesn’t. That the Texans will trade him. But again, it’s a wild guess, and that’s all I can do right now,” King continued.
The 25-year old had a spectaculer season in 2020 that saw him throw for 4,823 yards, 33 touchdowns, and just seven interceptions. His great play wasn’t enough as the Texans finished near the bottom of the AFC South.
