Texans now indicate Deshaun Watson is available for trade

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. 

As much as I want a Star QB, this is the soundest post in this thread.

That was somebody "playing hardball" with Watson. His reputation was fine until this sort of class action round up of "accusers" before his public statements of not returning wanting a trade not showing for camp.

He was an outstanding guy before he got out of line. He's back in line now. Isn't he?

Everyone has his day in court to face the charges . We should wait and see how Darnald plays before looking at another QB .  Watson needs to redeem his image and we need to look at all of our options before paying a high price that would hamper our chances later .

His public image was "outstanding".  This often bears no relation to the actual person.

We still lack a significant amount of overall experience. That is an issue, IMO. That applies to the coaches and players, really.

Even if you were to drop Watson into our roster for zero cost, I think we are a little bit away from being a SB caliber team.

If this draft class turns out to be a big hit, I think that will change.

Honestly, I do too. But if you put an MVP caliber QB on this roster we'd make some serious noise as long as our OL proved serviceable.

Yeah, this stuff coming out about Watson was a straight up shocker. I mean, if it happened to someone like Big Ben it wouldn't have been surprising.

Yeah, aside from the QB, that OL is just such a glaring roster weakness. It's stark. 

And this is under the assumption that the rest of our offseason moves were mostly successful. It is entirely possible that we might not be a successful team even with Watson just yet.

Ideally, we know a LOT more about our overall direction after 2021. As bad as it seemed in 2020, we left that season being pretty positive overall. I want that to continue in 2021, regardless of the win totals. Although a big jump there would go a long way towards getting the fanbase much more excited.

What exactly has changed with Watson since his career became a dumpster fire (even if it may be a temporary one)?

Nothing except he reported to training camp. 

The situation hasn't gotten better. The price hasn't come down. We've moved on and rolled our dice. Let's keep moving forward and quit rubber-necking that accident scene.
