Deebo Samuel doesn’t like anyone suggesting Nick Bosa be part of a potential Watson-to-49ers trade

Jan 14, 2021 at 8:07 AM--


It's the offseason. So why not speculate on what it might take for the San Francisco 49ers to land disgruntled Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson? One suggestion by former NFL player Ross Tucker, during an interview on 95.7 The Game, was a little too wild for a 49ers wide receiver's liking.

Tucker mentioned the 49ers' young pass-rushing star after being asked if anyone is untouchable in creating a tempting enough package to acquire Watson.

"I would say Nick Bosa, but if you can get Deshaun Watson, I think even Bosa is touchable," Tucker said. "I'm sure they don't want to do it, and I'm sure they'd even rather give up picks, but as great as Nick is, if you get a chance to get a top-five quarterback in the NFL, you have to do it.

"So I would say they would fight like the dickens to not have Nick Bosa be part of it, but ultimately, if that's what it took, that's what they would do."


It is an idea so crazy that our own podcast hosts, Al Sacco and Zain Naqvi, didn't even want to address the topic in their latest episode.

Deebo Samuel also doesn't like Bosa's name being floated out there as part of a potential trade and made his feelings clear on an Instagram story, shared below by @OurSF49ers. Samuel calls his defensive teammate "untouchable."


Of course, this is all speculation and gossip at this point, and there is no evidence that Bosa's name is even being considered as part of a trade or that any trade is even in the works. A deal to acquire a player like Watson would require significant compensation, with many believing that any discussions might start at two — maybe three — first-round picks.

At the same time, many feel that a marriage between Watson and head coach Kyle Shanahan would instantly make the 49ers Super Bowl contenders for years to come.

Watson led the league with a career-high 4,823 passing yards through 16 games in 2020, completing 70.2 percent of his passes while throwing 33 touchdowns and seven interceptions. The Texans made him the No. 12 overall pick out of Clemson in 2017.

Peter King weighs in on what it might cost for 49ers to trade for Deshaun Watson

Would the 49ers be willing to trade one of their top two young defensive stars, a slew of draft picks, and more if it meant getting Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson in return? It's possible that's the type of package they might have to ship in Houston's direction if they ever have the chance. And it's one that NBC Sports NFL writer Peter King proposes in his latest Football Morning In America column, in which he comes up with his own deals for teams that could be interested in bringing the three-time Pro Bowl quarterback into the fold. King starts this discussion with an important disclaimer, which is the Texans have yet to give any sign whatsoever that they are actually interested in trading Watson, even though Watson (4,823 passing yards, 33



Simms can't envision a 49ers trade scenario involving Nick Bosa

Chris Simms conducted an ask-me-anything version of his podcast, Chris Simms Unbuttoned, and spent a good deal of time discussing quarterback Deshaun Watson and his situation with the Houston Texans. Watson wants out, but the Texans want to repair the estranged relationship. There would be high demand if Watson were actually able to force a trade. His no-trade clause means that he would have a lot of say in any potential destination. It's not a stretch to believe that San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan might be intrigued by the possibility of adding a talent like Watson to his offense. Of course, there is no urgency on the part of the 49ers, as they have made it clear they are pleased to move forward with Jimmy Garoppolo. San Francisco has

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler is reporting that the San Francisco 49ers are among quarterback Deshaun Watson's list of teams that he is "intrigued by." "I checked in with a source that says Deshaun Watson has a list of teams that he's intrigued by," said Fowler on ESPN's Get Up. "He's not pigeonholing anything, but he's got a list. I didn't get all the teams, but I was told that the Denver Broncos, the San Francisco 49ers are two of them. "I also asked the source about the Jets and the Dolphins because they have the most draft capital this year and the next few years. I was told the Jets, 'Eh, probably not.' Maybe more so the Dolphins as far as viability." Watson has expressed frustration with the Texans organization and has requested a trade. The

One sportsbook, however, has San Francisco with much better odds. That would be DraftKings, who have the 49ers with the second-best odds to have Watson on the roster for Week 1 of the 2021 season (h/t to Patrick Tulini). Below are the teams with the five best odds to acquire Watson, per DraftKings. It's a significant jump from the +1100 odds San Francisco held with the sportsbook just days ago. Texans +200 49ers
