Deshaun Watson is still trying to navigate his way through some serious legal troubles, so there’s still no certainty as to whether or not he’ll even play in the 2021 NFL season. But if he does — or whenever he returns — there will be one team in particular who should be ready to pounce.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the one team that is in better position than anyone else to make a move for Deshaun Watson is the Philadelphia Eagles. And it would make sense for them to make a move for a controversial quarterback, after they were able to make it work with Michael Vick a decade earlier.
Schefter joined the John Kincade Show on 97.5 The Fanatic in Philadelphia. And when he was asked about the possibility of a Deshaun Watson trade, here’s what he had to say:
“The Eagles are more equipped to make a run at DeShaun Watson than any other team out there,” Schefter told the morning show. “And if you put DeShaun Watson on the Philadelphia Eagles they become a Super Bowl contender right away.”
With regards to his current legal issues, Schefter said, “Im operating under the assumption this will be settled. And when he is deemed able to play, the Philadelphia Eagles will be waiting.”
