Texans now indicate Deshaun Watson is available for trade

They know they're still holding this bad hand because they didn't honor his initial trade request. Had they done so, some other team (quite possibly us) would be sitting there with a franchise QB potentially facing serious legal issues, a possibly irreparable public image, and a probably lengthy suspension (if the potential legal issues don't land him in prison). They would be HUGE winners. Instead, by playing hardball they're currently holding a bad hand and so they have two choices: 

1. Cut bait, trade him for whatever they could get (IF the league would even approve a trade right now) with the trade haul confirming what a bad call they made playing hardball.

2. Continue to play hardball and hope the situation improves creating a better trade scenario for them.

We'll see how it plays out, but all indications are they're gonna go #2. Pun fully intended.

I thought of Kenny Rogers' song The Gambler when reading your post. 

I can see Tepper singing that tune.

There is no way in hell I would offer a trade package like that...for anybody

Sure as sh-t not for a guy with major red flags. 

You might not but seeing what the hypotheticals were before this lines up. Obviously I went overboard and don’t see it happening but there has been worse. If he is not in jail, same as Trevor Bauer anything we hear or read about the situation is manufactured “red flags” until the truth comes out. Men lie, women lie, numbers don’t and in this case we will see in time what the closest version of the truth is.

No chance this is coming from or being "signaled" by the Texans...

...these "leaks" are straight outta Watson's camp LOL.

The Texans have an ironclad contract with Watson and I believe they intend to force him to honor his side if he wants to ever collect another NFL paycheck.

I'm curious, why did Watson report?  

How does that help his negotiating position?

Thought he was already really rich and doesn't need the money?

3.  Force him to make the decision between honoring the terms of his contract, or, retire.

"If I'm Scott Fitterer, I'm keeping my draft picks, I'm keeping my young stars, and I'm letting Sam Darnold have a chance to prove he can be the starting quarterback in Carolina for years to come. If he fails, so be it. At least you keep your future in tact by not trading an absurd amount of picks or special talents like Brian Burns, Christian McCaffrey, Jeremy Chinn, or others."

He's gotta keep that settlement money coming in.

yep.  and things have gotten super duper quiet in regards to the Watson saga.   Which is odd given who the attorney involved is.

We are one of the teams that consistently keep popping back up in all this.  

Where there is smoke, there is fire.  All I know is that if they do somehow swing this, I hope we somehow manager to keep Brown, Burns, Chinn, Moore and CMC.  Can't neuter the core of this young team to land Watson.  Although I guess 3 1sts and whatever else it takes will do that by itself.  

Since we now have Sam, I am of the mind to just hold tight this year and see what we have with him.  He only cost a 2nd.
