With yesterday’s surprising info that Deshaun Watson not only dodged (for the moment) the NFL Commissioner’s Exempt List, but he showed up for Houston Texans training camp, lots of people are talking Watson again.

Chris Mortensen dropped this one for all to see:

This comes hot on the heals of a comment from a major member of Watson’s camp, expecting the QB would have been traded by yesterday.

But wait, there’s more:

With rumors swirling that the Philadelphia Eagles and Miami Dolphins are still very interested in Watson, something could break at any time.

Any general manager interested would have to weight the most likely worst case scenario: you give up five key assets to acquire Watson knowing you may lose him for a full year or more.

As hard as it is to get a QB of Watson’s stature, surely there’s a few teams who think that potential tradeoff makes sense all day, every day.
