NFL training camps are in full swing across the country and the Hall of Fame Game is tonight, which means we're just a few short weeks away from the actual regular season. If you were going to make a big move, you would want to do it as soon as possible because the clock is ticking and players are already going down with injuries. So it's no surprise that there are rumors out there. What should be surprising is that. even though there isno way a team would actually trade for Deshaun Watson with dozens of sexual assault allegations hanging over his head, there's a Deshaun Watson trade rumor. Specifically, involving the Philadelphia Eagles.
CBS Sports' Chris Trapasso tweeted that a source told him that "talks are heating up" between the Eagles and Texans. He does mention some "hurdles," but insists both teams are trying to get it done. I'm sure the Texans would love to get a deal done, but the idea that the Eagles - or any team - would trade for Watson right now remains absurd, even if Adam Schefter did originally float this trade a few weeks ago.
