Rapoport: Panthers expected to be in the mix for Watson.

I'd trade a fifth rounder for #3 overall too but somehow I don't see it happening.

As to Watson, I'd absolutely consider a deal in a heartbeat if it wasn't a Gift of the Magi type transaction. Most of what I see people offering here is exactly that.

And do you really think if say, the Dolphins offered a better deal than us, they'd take a worse deal just because of that?

(not even mentioning the relationship between Caserio and Flores)

The Texans are gonna get hammered and look like fools if they trade him anyway. You're asking them to accept looking even worse.

I don't think they would take a hugely lesser offer, but they might take a slightly lesser offer. Assuming Watson would sign off on the destination. That's the thing here, he has a no trade clause. They have to sell him on the destination or it's a no go.

just search the forum man. It was a link someone led with on a thread. I shouldn't have to disprove your disbelief. I am sure someone else here knows what I am talking about bc it was posted last week. There was a screenshot and a link.

so the concern here is that he goes to a place like NYJ or atlanta that is on the fence about drafting a QB, and Houston takes their spot and is guaranteed to take a QB

 

ideally he goes somewhere behind us if anything

Watson wanted the Texans to look at Robert Saleh as a head coach, plus the Jets have the #2 pick as well as a young WB to offer in return.

I'd definitely call them a real possibility.

Jets could easily put together a package for Watson if thats where he wanted to go.  The panthers not so much

You think he's going to come here and exchange for us trading away one of his best weapons or one of our best defenders?

The Dolphins and Jets have way more capital than we do.

Any team that makes this trade, turns his remaining contract into a long term deal. The reason he didnt sign a long term deal with the Texans is because he didnt want to stay there if they didnt prove things were changing. His current is purely a watson friendly deal to keep him in HOU. Now that he would be leaving, that new team (should be smart here) and re-write the deal in form of an extension.

If I were him I wouldn't mention renegotiating the deal. Some fool wanting to make a big impression will drop a bundle on him and ride that out. Or no one will and DeShaun will stay in Houston and make them pay it until they can finally cut him after 2023 for the smaller cap hit. 

He's a marvelous player and could make a huge impact for a team like ours. The sticker shock and already openly wanting to leave his first team, make him an unattractive partner with us, in my opinion... especially when we can take one of the upper tier QBs in the first round on a much, much more attractive rookie deal.
