Being honest, I haven't read through all the threads on Watson and surprisingly I haven't really seen any comments about it in the sports media but... what are the chances we see huge conditionals on the trade based on Watson's legal issues? Houston is making all these major demands for what would be a really good young QB but IMO if they want all this I think they'd have to accept a fair bit of risk. It'd be hard to cancel once we traded players (Jackson/CMC) but conditions could be placed on draft picks for sure.
Good point, I’m no expert on salaries but it looks like we’d be picking up 10 million plus this year and 30 million plus thereafter. So the most obvious way to clear up the most cap space would be packaging CMC and a ton of picks for Watson and they take Darnolds contract.
