It’s been an exciting week for San Francisco 49ers, and it just got much better.
With the NFL’s free-agency signing period set to officially open Wednesday, the 49ers already made a big splash by bringing back Kyle Juszczyk on a record-setting five-year deal.
The Athletic’s NFL Insider Michael Lombardi gave something for the fan base to think about when he reported that Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson would prefer to play in either Denver or San Francisco.
“The rumor is he doesn’t want to play in New York. The rumor is he doesn’t want to play in Miami. He wants to play in Denver or San Francisco.”
“So, say [Watson] says, ‘I only want to go to San Francisco,'” Lombardi said. “Well now, San Francisco has all the leverage in the trade.”
The Texans repeatedly have said Watson isn’t going anywhere and he will be Houston’s quarterback next season. Reports have suggested that Watson could take it to the next level and actually sit out the season to get what he wants.
We can only wait and see if anything actually happens.
