Texans | New HC not a factor for Deshaun Watson (Sun Jan 24, 01:04 PM) - Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson is still expected to seek a trade no matter who the Texans hire has their next head coach, sources told ESPN's Chris Mortensen.

Our View: The Dolphins and Jets are the most likely teams to land Watson as the biggest story of the offseason continues to unfold.

Jets | Deshaun Watson reportedly prefers NYJ (Sat Jan 23, 01:51 PM) - Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson reportedly said earlier this week that the New York Jets are his top preference among the teams he'd like to be traded to because of their recent hiring of head coach Robert Saleh, according to a report Saturday, Jan. 23, from the Miami Herald.

Our View: Saleh was considered by some to be the 'gem' of the potential head-coaching candidates that were out there. Watson has a no-trade clause so he will get to choose the team he wants to be traded to. We'll see if the Jets in fact put together a blockbuster deal, likely to include Sam Darnold, for Watson at some point this offseason.

Texans | Deshaun Watson has not asked for trade yet (Sun Jan 17, 12:29 PM) - Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson has not asked the Texans for a trade at this point, according to a source.

Our View: The key term in the headline is 'yet.' Watson's relationship with the Texans seems to be done and done. He has a no-trade clause in his contract which means the Texans cannot just send him to the highest bidder. We'll see if Watson requests the trade in the near future and picks his destination.

Texans | Deshaun Watson 'just wants out' (Sat Jan 16, 02:33 PM) - Houston Texas QB Deshaun Watson remains unhappy with the direction of the franchise, and 'just wants out,' a source close to Watson told Sports Illustrated in an online article posted Saturday, Jan. 16.

Our View: Most reports indicate that Watson's relationship with the franchise is past the point of no return. There have been some team-friendly reports saying things can get worked out but we're not so sure. Watson has a no-trade clause in his contract, meaning he gets to call his shot where he wants to go. The Dolphins is a team that some speculate Watson could have as his destination of choice.

Texans | Deshaun Watson unlikely to demand trade (Tue Jan 12, 11:01 PM) - Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson's 'displeasure with the way the organization has been run of late is indeed real, but it will not lead to his asking out,' according to 'someone familiar with his thinking' via Jerome Solomon of the Houston Chronicle.

Our View: Will he or won't he? That's the biggest question around the Texans right now. Watson has a no-trade clause in his contract so it's not like the Texans can shop him. He'd have to sign off on whatever team is to trade for his services, and some have speculated that could be the Dolphins. Watson's relationship with the Texans in fractured, so the answer to 'will he or won't he' is a wait-and-see at the moment.
