Deshaun Watson's future in the NFL is very much up in the air right now due to the troubling allegations that have emerged this offseason. On Monday, Houston Texans general manager Nick Caserio tried to shed some light on that situation.

Watson has been dealing with 22 lawsuits for the past few months due to his alleged behavior with several massage therapists. As of this moment, there's still no telling what will come out of those lawsuits.

Although the Texans have remained pretty quiet throughout this process, Caserio decided to reveal the team's mindset during an appearance on Sports Radio 610.

"We’re taking it one day at a time and really control the things we can control,” Caserio said, via John McClain of the Houston Chronicle. “The players have been focused on their attitude and their approach in the building, and they’ve handled everything very well.”

Caserio then said that Houston's front office will try to make a decision on Watson as the team gets closer to training camp.

"The most important thing is for all of us, the coaches and players and myself included, is to focus on the things we can control. As we get more information, as we get closer to training camp, we’ll try to make the best decision for the Houston Texans, whatever that entails."

Despite this troubling situation, Watson still wants out of Houston. Of course, he doesn't have much leverage as long as he's dealing with these lawsuits.

In the event that Watson can't play football this season, the Texans will most likely start Tyrod Taylor at quarterback.

We'll provide more updates on Watson's situation when they're available.
