Deshaun Watson reportedly wants out of Houston. Multiple reports have confirmed that the star quarterback no longer wants to play for the Texans.

But where does Watson want to play?

The superstar quarterback has a no-trade clause in his contract, so he will be able to dictate where he lands. One report suggested that Watson wants to land in New York.

Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reported on Saturday that Watson prefers to be traded to the New York Jets, where he would play for Robert Saleh.

The Miami Dolphins are reportedly the other preferred trade destination for Watson.

However, NFL Draft insider Matt Miller is hearing differently. He reported late on Saturday night that the Jets are not Watson's preferred destination. "Spent today talking to a few sources on the Deshaun Watson story. No disrespect to other reporters, but I’ve been told the Jets are NOT his preferred destination should a trade take place. His no trade clause makes this very important," he reported.

There's a lot of speculation with Watson right now.

For now, we simply know that Watson wants out of Houston. Where he ends up is anyone's guess at the moment.
