Three team deal:
Panthers get: Deshaun Watson
Texans get: #8, # 39, 2022 1st, 2022 2nd, 2023 1st Jimmy G
Niners get: Teddy Bridgewater
So...the Niners get TB for literally nothing. A guy they apparently have interest in acquiring. They get rid of Jimmy G (and his contract) in the process.
The Texans get a massive draft haul (three 1st round picks, multiple 2nd round picks) AND a QB who is definitely good enough to get them through until they find a replacement. Maybe they draft the future at #8 and put him on the bench behind JG for a year.
Panthers get Watson AND get to keep some of their established players to make a run immediately.
I think most of us agree that if the Texans decide to trade Watson they would like it to be with the Jets or Dolphins so they would have a chance at one of the top 3 QBs in the draft, but we actually seem like the team most likely to go “all in”.
Unfortunately I don’t think Teddy solves their QB dilemma but what if we trade with Miami, let’s say the 8th pick plus CMC for the third pick. Then we package the 3rd pick plus next years first, plus a few 2nds, plus a few young players for Watson.
I know that is a lot to give up for one player, but it’s starting to really feel like we are going to do anything we can to make this happen.
if anything we could make the trade with Miami and even if we don’t trade again for Watson we would be in better position to take a QB on the draft.
