The Texans know this isn't realistic, they're just blustering trying to play hardball with Watson and setting the trade bar high to cover their asses and make sure they don't lose leverage. They haven't shown anything that says they can get good compensation for their players, they let em all walk or traded them for nothing
Alabama insider Charlie Potter shared a story from Alabama safety Jared Mayden about Jones’ time on the Crimson Tide’s scout team. As the story goes, Jones wouldn’t stop “throwing bombs” to wide receiver Tyrell Shavers.
Nick Saban wasn’t happy about it and said to Jones, “Man, stop throwing it to him all the time.” Mac Jones quipped back, “Well, tell your defense to stop it.”
I love this swag. He was beating the Bama D deep in practice with the second teamers and (respectfully, he said afterwards) talked smack to Saban.
Rhule called him intelligent--very intelligent.
He may not be the answer, but if you give him a line, weapons, and a defense, he can throw for 4500 yards in a 13-game season, with 42 TDs vs 4 ints. Imagine what he can do if we build the OL and get him a TE?
