The Houston Texans don’t appear to plan on playing Deshaun Watson this season. The superstar quarterback continues to want out.
Will we actually get a trade?
A trade is complicated, of course, considering Watson’s situation. He’s been accused of sexual misconduct by more than 20 women. While Watson remains eligible to play, it’s possible – likely, even – that teams are hesitant to make a move for him.
However, FOX NFL insider Jay Glazer reported on Sunday morning that the Texans’ asking price for Watson has lessened.
The Texans were previously offered three 1st round picks and three 2nd round picks and they declined it.

There seems to be one real suitor for Watson right now: the Miami Dolphins.
Tua Tagovailoa has been inconsistent at best so far and he’s currently dealing with a leg injury. The Dolphins could look to make a move for the superstar quarterback.
“Miami is now the only “real” suitor now. Texans trying to drum market back up, could trade by trade deadline,” Benjamin Allbright reports.

The Dolphins are 1-1 on the season. They’re set to take on the Raiders on Sunday afternoon.
Will we see a Watson trade before the trade deadline gets here?
