There have been multiple reports out there saying Deshaun Watson already played his last down for the Houston Texans. The organization is just waiting for the smoke to clear on the civil lawsuits surrounding the Pro-Bowl quarterback. The assumption is he’ll get a short suspension and maybe a fine.
As soon as that happens, Watson will be on the next flight out of Space City. But where will the 25-year-old be landing? The Philadelphia Eagles keep getting mentioned as one potential destination if Jalen Hurts doesn’t work out.
SportsRadio 94WIP’s Howard Eskin said there’s a “90-percent chance” that Watson ends up in midnight green. The team’s official sideline reporter indicated it’s a three-team race to acquire Watson: Eagles, Miami Dolphins, Denver Broncos. That’s it.
Brandon Lee Gowton of Bleeding Green Nation was the first to relay Eskin’s report:
There’s only three teams, in talking to people around the league, that I know of, that really have the strong desire. That would be Denver, Miami — who, they gave away their first-round pick to the Eagles, so that really weakens their position, because I think they’re starting to realize that Tua [Tagovailoa] is a stiff.
But the Eagles have the three first-round picks, and that’s what they’re gonna have, and this is the prediction I’m going to make: based on the information that I got, when — and I’ll say WHEN — he is traded, I think there is a 90% chance that he will be with the Philadelphia Eagles. And just based on all the information that I’ve gotten, that’s what I’ve come down to.
