Deshaun Watson Officially Requests Trade

BUT WATSON DID NOT STATE THOSE REASONS. 

 

Those reasons are being stated by people who take his side, making up the notion that those were long standing issues with Watson.  He signed a contract extension with HOU 5 months ago.  HOU was bad before he signed the extension.  Heck, OBrien was the HC when he signed the extension.  By the twitter message in the link below, he seemed really happy about playing for HOU back in September, and thanked OBrien, Jack Easterby, and the McNair Family.

 

Its all a big lie.  He wants a trade because he's chosen to escalate a double downed stupid comment he made about HOU not interviewing Eric Bienemy and slandered the entire organization's hiring practices.  He can't apologize because he's too arrogant and righteous. I say let him bid with himself again and escalate it again by holding out if he wants too.  By rule, HOU can hold back game checks.

 

He looks like a fool, and some people are running to his defense...most likely because its bad optics if people who want to criticize hiring practices admit they were wrong, so they are pretending that Watson is now upset over something else more long standing.

Doug...  these anti-Watson rants have gone from bad to worse.   Other posters here have noted you make it sound personal.   You have mischaracterized most everything that has happened.   Watson has a lot of support around the NFL.   I’d say far more support than dont.   I don’t pretend to know how this is going to finish?   But I hope you can lower the temperature here...   I don’t think it’s helpful.   Just my two cents...

Good Grief this situation seems to have triggered some and is no longer any kind of a discussion Closing

I think he will sit out if Houston doesn't trade him. That team is a mess.

I see you are dug in on this and not listening to anyone else.  That was only one factor, not the end all be all.

 

I don't know why you are linking details of his contract.  Teams cut and trade those whenever they want, and players can request trades, sit out or retire.  Several other QBs were traded this offseason too.

 

He will probably never apologize because the team doesn't deserve one, they are horribly ran organization and other players are jumping ship too.

LOL.  You are dug in.  

 

He claimed that the HOU organization had flawed hiring practices because they did not interview Eric Bienemy.   

 

Do you think he should apologize for that?

At times, the line between politics and football are blurred and our rules against political posting require thoughtfulness by our posters.

 

That is the case with this topic.  Several posts were removed from this thread because they were anti social justice/political and others were just defamatory and demeaning toward this player

 

Thanks to everyone who kept their posts within the rules here

    • I knew you were going to pick him after the trade up and reading if you could pick now!  Good pick at 33!  
    • Didn't the Patriots extend Newton's contract for another year? It sounds like they intend to keep him as starter. 
    • I used TDN's Mock Draft Simulator and I tried to keep things as realistic as possible (not taking guys that oddly fall absurdly far). I double up on edge, but I think I hit needs without reaching.   Trade: Indy gave up picks 21 & 206 (6th) to Buffalo for picks 30, 93 (3rd), 161 (5th) - Buffalo traded up to take Azeez Ojulari.   30. Liam Eichenberg | OT, Notre Dame - I teetered between Eichenberg and Cosmi, but decided to go with the safer plug and play option. Next to Q, I think a guy with a high floor and and average ceiling will still do well.   58. Payton Turner | EDGE, Houston - Really good edge prospect that may not be an instant contributor, but has all of the physical attributes we look for (size, length, explosiveness) and has a solid foundation to build from. After seeing an interview with him on the PFF YT channel, I think he also has the right mindset.   93. Trill Williams | CB, Syracuse - A prototypical CB for our defense. He's got the size, length, and speed we look for in our CB's. He can play outside, as well as in the slot against smaller, shiftier WR's. He can also lay a hit and is known for his knack for stripping the ball (in HS, he literally ripped the ball out of the ball carrier's hands right before they crossed the goal line and took it the other way).   127. Chris Rumph II | EDGE, Duke - After taking a pass rusher that checks our usual boxes, I veered a bit and went for more of a designated pass rusher in Rumph. He's 6'3" 244lb (think Leonard Floyd) and actually played in the 220's last season (he cited lack of regular facilities due to Covid, but has since been putting in work at EXOS). He's got the length with 33.75" arms and is an explosive athlete with great bend/flexibility. His dad is also a long time HS, college, and now NFL coach (Bears). He has some technical pieces to nail down and needs to get stronger/put on some more weight, but I think he would be a perfect rotational piece initially to add some speed off the edge.   131. Josh Imatorbhebhe | WR, Illinois - One of my favorite later round WR's. He's a raw from a route running perspective, but has size, good speed, and can out jump literally any CB on the field. He could just be a RZ guy initially, but with good coaching & development, could be special. He reminds me a lot of AJ Brown, just not as polished.   165. Bobby Brown III |IDL, Texas A&M - Dude is a brick wall and actually moves really well for his size. He can play either DT spot on our line, can play both the run and rush the passer pretty will, and while he could go higher than this, his questionable motor has me thinking he'll fall a bit. I think playing with Buckner and Stewart should rub off on him and I'd be willing to take the gamble at this point in the draft.   248. Zach Davidson | TE, Central Missouri - A small school TE (6'6" 240) that is more of a move TE than anything. He reminds me a bit of Dan Arnold in that he doesn't offer much in the way of blocking ability, but he's athletic and gives you a TE that can help in the receiving game. He definitely needs to bulk up a bit and get stronger, but I have faith in our coaching staff's ability to develop TE's. He also gives you the bonus of doubling as your back-up punter, as he played both positions in college.
