The Deshaun Watson rumors have only grown louder over the past two weeks and they don’t seem ready to stop.
On Tuesday night, a new column from John McClain of the Houston Chronicle, suggested the Houston Texans and Miami Dolphins agreed to the framework of a trade.
“The compensation has been agreed to, according to sources familiar with the situation,” McClain wrote. “The Texans should get the three first-round picks they’ve been asking for, but Caserio might have to accept lesser picks than the second-round selections he’s demanded.”
The latest news hit social media and caused quite a firestorm among NFL fans. Here’s some of the reaction from around the sports landscape.
“This is a disaster,” said a Miami sports based Twitter account.

Other fans think the news suggests Watson won’t be playing for any team this season.
“Tell me Deshaun Watson won’t play a single snap this season without telling me he won’t play a single snap this season,” one person on social media said.

The Texans and Dolphins don’t have long to come to an agreement – if they even decide to do so.
The NFL’s trade deadline expires on November 2, which gives the Texans just a week to find a trade partner.
Will Watson be traded?
