Once he gets traded somewhere else or the unlikely scenario that he stays with the Texans. 

I think we can be in the running but this situation is so insanely wild I am just sort of enjoying the ride.

If it's not done by the week of the draft, it ain't happening.

If the deal involves Burns or Chinn, it (hopefully) ain't happening. 

 

I wouldn't expect anything to happen until AT LEAST early April if Houston plans on taking a QB this year in the draft. They'll scout/vet the prospects, talk, talk some more, decide.  Expecting a Watson trade now, or in March, or even very early April isn't realistic.

Never cared enough to develop a breaking point

Same, I just hope they don’t trade away a half decade worth of first round picks for a player that might not even be relevant by the time the team has a first round pick again. Deshaun has already torn an ACL and we saw how fast injuries can end a promising young QBs career.

If we acquire a different quarterback or he's traded somewhere else, that'll be the end of the story. Until then, anything's possible.

That said, I don't know that he's going to get traded at all. Based on what I've read, doesn't seem likely. And if the Texans do change their mind, we're not in a good position to make the best offer.

Also, yeah the possibility of the Texans hanging on to him through a holdout does exist. As unlikely as it may sound, it is possible that they manage to reconcile with him on some level, or at least get him to agree to play even if he's not particularly happy..

I feel the likelihood of that last scenario is pretty small though.

    • Would it have to be either/or? If Pitts and either Sewell or Slater were there at #8, everybody here is voicing opinions as to why one is better than the other. Why not have our cake, and then go ahead and eat it, too. Take Pitts at #8, then trade our 2nd round pick, plus our #1 in 2022, to Denver, and get the OT we need with their #9.  (If you experts in swap values think that's not enough, add to it until it is.) Balls to the wall, boys.  If you all think Sewell/Slater are #1 picks this year (and they are), then they're equally worth next year's #1.
    • Well, that was kind of dumb since the scenarios are completely different. You don't need a mediocre vet to mentor another vet. Likely means probably, odds on or possibly. Since you didn't link the article, likely because it makes no sense after the Darnold threa, I have to make an assumption which is very plausible since there was a ton of discussion about us drafting a QB at 8 or trading up until SF made their trade. Time to read. I said worst case was that we would only save $8M by releasing him. $18M new cap hit minus $10M guaranteed that we'd have to pay on release equals $8M. Again, worst case is we only save $8M by releasing him and having to pay the guarantee. Way more than a zero chance of the last scenario. If we can trade Teddy, that scenario happens, period, simple as that. Amazing that you think there is no chance that Teddy gets release or traded after we made a trade for Darnold and committed to paying him in 2022.
