Is this the end?

After months of rumors, reports, disgruntlement, trade discussions, hypothetical trade packages, and discussions about who Houston’s new head coach will be, it’s official, according to Adam Schefter. Deshaun Watson has asked for a trade from the Houston Texans and does not want to play football here anymore.

From the looks of it, it looks like Cal McNair’s decision to not include Watson on the general manager or head coaching search, after promising him to do so, and then quickly signing Nick Caserio out of the blue, was the end of all this. This singular decision, negotiated by Jack Easterby, may have been the last straw for Watson.

During this time, we’ve waited for some official response from Watson, something substantiating the rumors, the cryptic tweets, but not hearing anything from Watson directly. Well, here it is. Deshaun Watson wants out of Houston. The core has collapsed. The supernova is set to begin.
