If they keep him locked up in contractual purgatory, his refusal to play for them, or, worse, play under contentious circumstances that affect and effect the desired results, will bring them to their knees, and they're already pretty low!

Nope, just 2021 contractual law. 

You should look into how many NFL players go broke. 

Not necessarily. 

I already know that most go broke, but that's because they're either ignorant or stupid. Watson is neither!

Ask the Rockets. They saw the writing on the wall and did the sensible thing. You think that paying top dollar for a backup QB won't affect the Texans' bottom line. How many games did they win last season, much less pre-Watson?

It’s amazing how people can’t seem to grasp this.

If DW doesn’t want to play there he won’t. Simple as that. 

It does no favors to either side having him sit out or him showing up disgruntled. 

Just saw something similar happen in the NHL this week with Pierre-Luc Dubois.

Not only that, but Fitterer has earned his lunch money scouting mid to later round players and UDFAs! You can't be a scared motherfuger, and the Seahawks, as well as other successful franchises, aren't timid about trades or trading back and somehow still continue to compete year in and out!

Yeah that’s because they have one of the best QBs in the league! Having that makes everything else so much easier!!

Exactly!  The Texans have their backs against the wall here. If they refuse to work with DW4, they stand to lose the most.

Their 1st and 2nd round picks belong to Miami. They have no cap space. Looking at these two facts, they cannot really improve their team at this point. Watson not playing, and no way to improve and that team is a complete dumpster fire. 

Trading Watson even getting a little less than desired in the trade, gives them so much more in other areas. They can actually have draft picks to start a rebuild, including a chance to draft their next QB. Jersey sales from a rookie QB will far outperform sales of a QB that will eventually be out. No lingering drama, move on to the next chapter with your new GM, and hope he can build something like you hired him to do. Let him start drafting talent while some salary clears the books. Let your new GM start over and build a foundation for long term success.

The team would be crazy to give up so much capital for DeShaun Watson. He isn't worth CMC, Burns, or DJ! IMO The most that any team should give up for Watson is maybe 2021 Round 1, 2021 maybe 4th or 5th round, 2022 1st Round, and maybe a pick maybe 4th or 5th round! Because whoever signs him is facing a huge salary and dead cap!

According to Fitterer, we will be in on all conversations. He also believes the SB success in Seattle had a lot to do with RW on a rookie contract. 

I also feel like the year they drafted Wilson, they signed Flynn to a HUGE contract to be their starter.

The 'Hawks were always aggressive in pursuits of targets as well as moving around the draft, so IDK what direction the braintrust is leaning. It would appear that DW would both go for, as well as against Fitterer's vision and mantra.

I could see Tepper wanting DW at all costs. I could see Rhule wanting to draft a QB and bring this process along slowly without gutting the team of draft and player capital. 

In Fitterer We Trust.

I think a lot of folks here have an inflated sense of how valuable draft picks are vs. an elite franchise QB.

Draft picks are only as valuable as the players you pick with them. Short of hitting on a franchise QB with one of the 1st rounders we'd be giving to Houston, Watson's value far exceeds the players we'd get with those picks, save for some kind of miracle run of drafting that rarely ever happens in the NFL.

I, for one, don't think it'll take quite as much to acquire Watson as many seem to. The 3 1st rounders thing seems to be assumed, but is just speculation. Watson's desire to get out does reduce the leverage the Texans have in trading him, as does his no-trade clause and the fact that he has to agree to the team he's traded to.

It wouldn't surprise me if the eventual trade - by us or another team - looks a lot more like the Khalil Mack trade to Chicago than something that includes 3 1st rounders and a big name player.

    • We don't have a clear picture on which positions will be premium, which middle of the road, and which scrubs. We don't know Rhule's/Fittere's blueprint, so we can't anticipate what we'll will do in the draft and FA. I do know some thing about Fitterer and Rhule. They both love fast roster churning at the bottom. So our scrubs will likely be pushed hard to overachieve, and when they don't they be sent packing quickly for the next scrub. Churning the hell out of the bottom of the roster is way of trying to find overachieving gems asap. The drawback is that the burden is placed on the coaches to always be dealing with inexperienced new guys, and more so than the typical NFL team. We also know that Rhule loves balance, so he wants to be able to run and pass very well. He places a premium on being able to run in cold weather late in the season and during playoffs. In the past things were simple. We knew our scrub position on defense were the safeties. We had a system that didn't require the safeties to be high quality. Now we really don't know what is going on yet. The defense is still up in the air, so who knows what we're going to do in the future.
    • Darnold always reminded me of the villian from the Incredibles  
    • You sold me on Tremble. As sexy as a those elite strictly pass-catching TEs are, I would love to have one that can block. Think of how much it would help CMC to have a real TE for once. LB - I’m big on Cam McGrone. He’s probably there in the third. He looks like a prototypical MLB to me. CB - Ambry Thomas and Camryn Bynum. I like them both. I doubt Djax or Bouye get resigned so I’m betting we take at least one corner in these middle rounds. S - Damar Hamlin - Seems like he could be a rich man’s Tre Boston. OLine - D’ante Smith looked really strong in the senior bowl.   Aaron Banks and David Moore at guard are both guys I’d target. Both are mean and nasty. Banks is a big mf that pushes people around. Moore, isn’t quite as tall - more of a freezer chest that is surprisingly athletic.  DL - Jaylen Twyman - quick DT that looks like he could make a splash as a 3-tech beside Brown or maybe line up as a DE in a 3-man front.
