Rapoport: NFL teams calling about Deshaun Watson despite Texans saying nothing about trade

Jan 18, 2021 at 7:20 AM--


Deshaun Watson is not a happy quarterback. That is no secret and, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media, teams are reaching out to the Houston Texans to find out if the star player might become available.

While Rapoport doesn't specifically mention the San Francisco 49ers, oddsmakers have given the Bay Area squad the third-best chance to have Watson on its roster at the start of the 2021 season. Of course, the Texans remain the favorite to have Watson for Week 1.

Watson is not happy after the Texans asked for his involvement in the team's search for a new general manager and head coach. Then, members of the team's brass ignored the quarterback's suggestions and are now trying to find a way to mend the relationship with their disgruntled player.

"As these rumors have percolated, as more and more people have talked about what is going to happen with Deshaun Watson, teams have started calling, as you would expect, saying, 'Hey, is this guy actually available?'" Rapoport said on NFL Network's Good Morning Football. "'Could we actually trade for Deshaun Watson?'

"Now, a couple of things I want to say that are important. First of all, the owner, Cal McNair, and no one inside the Texans organization has actually said they would trade Deshaun Watson. He has also not asked for a trade. However, that has not stopped teams from calling, and it hasn't stopped people from speculating."

Rapoport mentioned the Jacksonville Jaguars, New York Jets, and Miami Dolphins as potential trade partners for the Texans, should the team eventually look to move on from Watson. He also suggests keeping an eye on the Carolina Panthers as a potential destination.

The Houston Texans have insisted they have no desire to trade quarterback Deshaun Watson, and that's the story they're sticking to. Watson, on the other hand, has grown frustrated with the organization and wants out of Houston. Until last week (see below), the young star quarterback had cut off all contact with the team as the two sides remain in deadlock. The Texans' refusal to give in to Watson's demands hasn't stopped teams from reaching out. Those inquiries continue to be ignored, according to ESPN's Dianna Russini (h/t to Patrick Tulini). Houston isn't



Report: 49ers among Deshaun Watson's list of teams he's 'intrigued by'

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



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

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
