He's gotta keep that settlement money coming in. 

Yep and the endorsement income has dried up.  

An entourage can 🔥 a pile of cash real fast...

...not to mention the legal feels, Rusty Hardin requires a $1,000,000 retainer just to get started.  

The pressure is on...

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

That's the same as #2. 

Sidenote... it's weird how much you get off on the wealthy man trying to force his will on the less wealthy man.

Not even remotely similar...#3 doesn't make any provisions for a "trade".

So now we're supposed to feel sorry for a guy who is set to have career earnings approaching $200,000,000 by 2025... 🤣😂🤪🤙🍻

BTW, nobody is "forcing their will" on anyone else, stop with the virtue signaling phony talk...

...both sides agreed to a detailed and legally enforceable contract, a contract that does not contain a "my feelings are hurt clause"...

...I expect the Texans to hold him to the contract, as they should.

So... you're getting off on that. Just like you would if a player is released (in which case the team would be failing to uphold the contract they entered into).

Anytime you see the "strong man" winning you get off on it. It's weird.

the hypothetical Watson that existed pre-scandal was worth selling the farm for.  

the actual Watson that exists now carries too much risk to acquire IMO

I expect a payoff is coming for his current situation.  But that won't actually close the door on that chapter.  Could easily get re-opened after this group is paid off.

Not interested. They want big compensation and no indication when or if Watson plays again. Plus the negative message it sends to the community that it's ok to violate women, allegedly, as long as you can throw a ball, that's going to be a PR nightmare. 

The more negative message (for anyone) is a sense that you can never be more than the worst thing you’ve ever done … or allegedly done in this case.

Do people forget we have Sam Darnold? Let the man play and see what he can do. It would be a dick move to trade for him and have him be our QB, only to throw him to the side and trade for Watson.

The the Texans asking  price will be some combination of 5 high draft picks and starting caliber players, per two league executives for Deshaun Watson, so that would rule me as out as a bidder if I am a NFL team owner..

It's not 1 case. It's 22 separate unresolved cases. He could be more, a whole lot more, and he may be.  But right now, from a  business standpoint, you can't give up 3 years of number 1s and some 2s, starting caliber players, 50m in salary cap and dedicate a roster spot on the hope that this isn't true. I don't think for 1 second Watson is ignorant. Bringing in dozens of massage therapists and going as far as to fly them in, if nothing crazy is going on, record that poo.

I’ve never had a problem with a player letting a team know he wants a trade. If I owned a team I wouldn’t want to be paying out millions of dollars towards a player that doesn’t want to be there, especially when I can get some assets in return.

It’s more of a panic out of being wrong. The guy was convinced Julio wouldn’t be traded and Watson would be forced to play. Julio didn’t pan out as he wanted and now the Texans are willing to trade Watson. He is lucky Watson got into legal trouble or he would have already been traded by now. Oh yeah he also didn’t think we would unload Teddy…
