49ers’ Richard Sherman suggests Deshaun Watson leaves Texans for this team

Jan 20, 2021 at 6:41 AM--


Everyone has an opinion on what quarterback Deshaun Watson should do. He doesn't seem to want to be with the Houston Texans after feeling disrespected by the team's brass and not seeing eye-to-eye on several organizational decisions.

It has been a recipe for some compelling offseason discussion, with fanbases across the league wondering what their team's offense might look like with Watson at the helm.

During The Cris Collinsworth Podcast, cornerback Richard Sherman, who co-hosts the show, shared his opinion on what Watson should do, and it isn't joining the San Francisco 49ers.

"If I was Deshaun, I would get out of there as quickly as possible. I'd head to New York," Sherman told Collinsworth and George Chahrouri. "... The Jets. It would be the most beautiful (situation). A decent offensive line. They'd have to find threats. They'd have to find some offensive weapons. But I think there would be a lot more people excited to be there.

"I think the free agency market this year is going to be oversaturated because of the salary cap, but that's what I would do."

The suggestion is an interesting one, given that Sherman is scheduled to become a free agent himself and has made it clear that he doesn't expect to return to San Francisco due to the team's salary-cap situation.

Sherman's former defensive coordinator with the 49ers, Robert Saleh, is now the Jets head coach, so that has naturally led to some speculation that the All-Pro cornerback might be New York-bound. He may not be the only impending 49ers free agent eying the Jets either.

"They're going to be able to put a team together, and if [Watson is] at the helm, they immediately become a contender in not only that division but the AFC in general," Sherman added.

The sooner everyone moves on from the 49ers' dreadful 11-10 loss to the Denver Broncos on Sunday night the better. But first, let's tie up some loose ends to come from Sunday's postgame interviews. Much of the postgame discussion surrounded the performance of the 49ers' offense, which was poor enough to squander a defensive effort that held the Broncos' offense to just nine points. But there was also some honesty regarding the loss of left tackle Trent Williams, some insight from head coach Kyle Shanahan on why he declined an important first half penalty, and much more. Let's get into a roundup of some of Sunday's postgame comments in this edition of 49ers Notebook. George Kittle's honesty on the loss of Trent Williams and the performance of the
