very little we discuss on this message board is concrete. You take what you are given and you have a conversation about it. 

Yeah but I am just stating that this conversation is about 98% theoretical at this point. If we had half a dozen sports media outlets reporting this rumor, it would be a different situation entirely.

Sure, Houston, the Jets and Dolphins may be offering you a boatload of draft picks. But draft picks are a gamble and can end up netting you nothing but headache. Don't fall victim to such a rookie mistake.

We, on the other hand, have something that nobody else can offer. Let me introduce you to the very hard working, fan favorite, up-and-coming superstar Teddy Bridgewater.

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.

I dont think he will have a choice unless there is desperation by the trading partner. You'd be led by an incompetent FO if they keep the contract as is. Its a bad contract for a franchise.

This has Saints written all over it, they know how to trade for people with negative cap. We have no idea how to make trades like this lol

Like I posted in another thread... Saints are almost $100M over the cap. They literally would have to trade away about 8 top paid players to the Texans then negotiate Watson's salary before even going under the cap.

Precisely.  Anyone with a brain can look at our draft capital and roster and see this is a pipe dream.

Lol y’all think we giving up CMC in a trade, what y’all smoking?

Hell yes. Look I love CMC but with as physical as the game is today. CMC will not be playing in 5 years. S h i t  dude was out the majority of this season.

Imagine him going to atlanta

The falcons get deshaun Watson and the Texans get our rookie franchise QB

Way less likely than him coming here. The Falcons are already in cap trouble as it is and trading or cutting Matt Ryan puts them in dire straits even WITHOUT Watson's cap figure.

Yeah they are always over the cap and still get people, please tell me how they do that.

With 3 entirely separate injuries.  Riverboat ran that dude into the ground in 3 short seasons

To be fair... there were a dozen outlets stating that the Watson trade was just a rumor. News isnt news until happens. I'd rather spin my wheels here on something that has a chance of happening and franchise changing, then talk about Brees retiring or Brady sucks. Hahah

You can keep dreaming then, just like everyone thinks this trade for Watson is happening.

I can't agree it is a pipe dream. We are a possible destination but a lot of dominos have to fall to make that happen. The first of which being him actually wanting to come here.
