Houston will let Watson rot

His stance was that the coach wasn't going to change his mind... and it didn't.  Meeting with the coach isn't caving, lol.  In fact it demonstrates that he's doing this right and showing the Texans he is serious. They're not going to convince him to stay with their coach hire.

There have been no reports that Watson is willing to play with the Texans under any circumstances.  So it is the same as it has been.  While Houston hasn't made a trade yet, there's still lots of time for them to do so.  Or, I suppose, for Watson to change his mind - but that, to me, seems less likely given his current stance.

Rapoport explained that he met with Culley out of respect for him as someone who's worked really hard to get to where he is.

It's not a huge stretch to see it as a baby step, but you can't definitively say anything has changed either.

Texans are already in a PR nightmare. Watson literally can’t play for another team if he isn’t traded and will forfeit his income + be fined on top of that for multiple years. If the Texans owner doesn’t care about the PR nightmare, Watson will 100% cave. He can’t holdout forever.

I have a very hard time believing that a GM told Fowler what they plan to do in any capacity much less regarding a blockbuster trade. This sounds like a misquote of what was likely a discussion that was using speculative exaggeration for emphasis.

A millionaire player vs a billionaire owner.

Not to say this is the case, however, if the owner is truly stubborn and refuses to budge they can just outwait Watson.  He's gonna run out of money long before the owner does.
