Report: Deshaun Watson open to trade with several teams

Estranged Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson would consider a trade to several teams with the trade deadline fast approaching, ESPN reported Monday.

Watson would be willing to waive his contractual no-trade clause for teams in addition to the Miami Dolphins, per the report. Watson and the Dolphins have been linked in trade talks since the beginning of the season. The Houston Chronicle reported that a Dolphins-Watson trade could be completed by the end of last week.

The Athletic reported the Carolina Panthers have interest in Watson, given Sam Darnold’s struggles.

The Houston Chronicle reported Watson has nixed a deal to the Philadelphia Eagles.

There are other teams in the mix, per reports, with talks are swirling for the 26-year-old ahead of the NFL trade deadline on Nov. 2 at 4 p.m. ET.

Per ESPN, the Denver Broncos are considered an option, but the team hasn’t yet entered the bidding according to the report.

If Watson is dealt to Miami, there is a chance he’s in uniform facing the Texans on Nov. 7.

Watson hasn’t played for the Texans this season. He stands accused of sexual assault by 22 women who have filed lawsuits. Police and the NFL have ongoing investigations.

Houston has reportedly sought three first-round selections and two second-round picks in any trade for Watson.

Though he is disgruntled with the Texans, Watson reported to training camp to avoid being fined $50,000 per day. He attends meetings but hasn’t played in any games.

Watson, a three-time Pro Bowl selection, has passed for 14,539 yards, 104 touchdowns and 36 interceptions in 54 games (53 starts) over four seasons. He established career highs of 4,823 yards and 33 touchdowns last season while throwing a career low seven interceptions.
