According to Kareem Jackson, the Texans’ former first round cornerback turned murderous safety, Deshaun Watson wants to become a Denver Bronco. Jackson was recently on Aqib Talib’s podcast and stated Denver is where Watson wants to be, as reported by ESPN.

“I’ve been talking to him the last couple of weeks, man, and like, all he’s been telling me is like, ‘Jack, just tell ‘em, like, that’s where I want to be.’ ... He’s like, ‘I want to be in Denver.’

“Listen, man, tell them I want to be in Denver.”

The Broncos recently parted with a late round draft pick for Teddy Bridgewater this past offseason. They have been in quarterback hell since they sold their soul for their defense to carry the purple tongued and terrible Peyton Manning to another title, where he of course name dropped a corporate beer sponsor and kissed the Papa, proving the NEW WORLD ORDER is real. Paxton Lynch, Drew Lock, Case Keenum, the return of [NAME REDACTED], Trevor Siemian, Brandon Allen...the Broncos have seen it all at the quarterback position, reminiscent of Houston’s quarterback carousel before they drafted Watson in 2017.

Denver is looking to stop the bleeding, and they have talent they can pass onto Houston. They recently drafted Patrick Surtain II. They still have Bradley Chubb, forever full of potential. There’s Dalton Risner, Jerry Jeudy, and Noah Fant. They have the best secondary in football once again, but still, they are a quarterback away from true contention.

Similar to Carolina, the Broncos could trade young talent for Watson to allow Houston to jump start their defensive rebuild. Add a couple of draft picks, and that may be enough for the Texans to send Watson to Colorado.

Nevertheless, the Texans reportedly continue to ignore any Watson trade discussion. Watson refused to show up for OTAs. He shouldn’t be traded until 2022, but if he’s moved sooner, Denver could be a destination. It wouldn’t be surprising, or outlandish for Watson to get his wish.
