It would appear that the interest in Deshaun Watson is gaining more and more steam as the offseason moves on. Watson is not only expected to be trade by the Texans, but able to take the field with his new team.
After it was reported on Super Bowl Sunday that the Buccaneers have done extensive homework on Watson, the disgruntled Houston Texans quarterback who is currently facing over 20 civil lawsuits for sexual misconduct, ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler shared that Tampa Bay is a team on Watson’s radar.
The Bucs have a Tom Brady-size hole to fill at quarterback, and adding Watson could help matters tremendously.
Bleacher Report’s Ian Wharton put together a list of trade proposals that could “prevent a Rams Super Bowl repeat.”
One of Wharton’s ideas has the Buccaneers acquiring quarterback Deshaun Watson from the Houston Texans and send back their 2022 first-rounder (No. 27), 2023 first-round pick (protected in case of a suspension), 2022 fourth-round selection (No 131 overall) and 2023 second-rounder.
The Texans are unlikely to consider doing such a proposed trade, even with Watson facing a potential suspension. There have been reports that they are seeking at least three first-round picks.
Even if Watson settles each case before a trial, there would be a level of discomfort among the Buccaneers’ fanbase in bringing Watson into the fold.
Watson still has four seasons remaining on his four-year, $156 million contract.
