Yep.

Deshaun Watson trade rumors: 'More than half the teams' have called about Texans quarterback, per report
It's more than just the quarterback-needy teams that are interested in Watson

The fact that 1/2 the teams are interested means a team will have to give up way too much to get him.

Perhaps.  But what is too much for a franchise QB that would make a team a Super Bowl contender?

He didn't make Houston a Super Bowl contender.

This.
And if you already have a good team, without a QB, you propably do not have the cap space for Watson.

No QB in the NFL would have made this year's Houston team a Super Bowl contender.  The issue is whether a team that already has the pieces to compete for a Super Bowl is just missing a QB.

What about last year and the year before that?  Tom Brady turned a losing team into an NFC champion in 1 year.  Houston bent over backwards making trades to satisfy Watson and it put them in a hole.  No smart team is giving what Houston is asking for Watson.

I hope Houston doesn't lose this battle because if he gets what he wants you will see QB's doing this every year when they aren't happy.  Houston has all the leverage on him.  If he doesn't play he doesn't get paid.

Houston hasn't had the pieces.  And for sure, the reason they didn't win was NOT because of Watson. 

How did they bend over backwards for Watson by trading away his best player?  Do you know how good DeAndre Hopkins is?  They essentially gave him to Arizona last year.  In spite of that, Watson had his best year ever. 

Brady went to a team with a good defense and some of the best skill position players in the NFL.  That's exactly what I'm talking about:  a team that is only missing a QB.  The Niners stunk this year because of injuries.  If they are healthy and you add a stud QB, they are definitely competing for a Super Bowl.   

I don't have a problem with NFL players using whatever leverage they have.  Most of their contracts are pretty worthless.  Lots of non-guaranteed money.  They get hosed all the time. 

I doubt my Niners will pull the trigger based on what I'm hearing the asking price is:  "2 ones, 2 twos and 2 young defensive starters, at the least."  If was in SF, I would give up the draft picks in a heartbeat, but not the two defensive starters, if those starters are named Nick Bosa and Fred Warner.

Houston made a stupid trade with Miami to get their left tackle.  There are a lot of teams with more problems than Houston.  It really doesn't matter, Watson isn't going anywhere unless some stupid team is willing to give a bunch of players and picks for him.  He will command more than Stafford and the Rams gave up 2 1st's and a 3rd for him.

There are a lot of lousy and mediocre teams in the NFL. 

Watson will definitely command more than Stafford because Watson is better and younger.  We shall see.  I hope whatever is going to happen (or not happen) is over soon, because I hate it when entitled, privileged 20-something-year-old kids consume so much space in my head.  lol

If you think they are consuming too much time in your head go to some college football team sites.  These guys spend hours watching film of high school teams and argue who is actually a real 5* player and who isn't.

It's 12 now.  He is either a perv or he REALLY pissed off the Texan's owner by demanding a trade.

The list keeps growing, but I am very suspicious about all of this.  All of the women are "Jane Doe," but their lawyer is all over the media trashing Watson.  That is grossly unfair to him. 

I don't know if he is a perv, but the way they are handling this (and frankly all similar kinds of allegations) is just wrong. 

I'm not a big believer in conspiracy theories, but there is no question these allegations have all but eliminated the possibility of any team giving up a king's ransom for him until this is resolved. 

In any event, here is a statement from his lawyer.  https://sports.yahoo.com/deshaun-watsons-lawyer-just-showcased-part-of-his-legal-defense-000124398.html

I read that the lawyer representing the women lives on the same street as the Texans owner. :D  It would be a huge ballsy move for the owner though because if just one woman came forward and said she was coaxed by the owner into this he would lose his team.

Yeah I heard they were neighbors.   

Will be interesting to see how this plays out.

Not surprised.  All unnamed.  There has essentially been a national call for women to come forward.  I wonder why none of them went to the police?

On snap.   ;D

If all of the mocks are correct and the Jets take Justin Fields (EDIT:  I meant Zach Wilson), I hope the Niners draft Trey Lance.

Niners are definitely going QB.  Look for a trade sending Garoppolo to the Patriots soon.

I don't think they will trade Jimmy G unless NE or someone else offers a 1st round pick.  Not sure if that will happen. 

This is likely to be similar to what happened in KC with Alex Smith and Mahomes and Green Bay with Rodgers and Jordan Love.

Pretty sure NE will offer 1st rounder.  It's like dumping your ex girlfriend and being desperate to get her back.

I hope so.  Not sure Cam Newton is the answer.  But they did sign some good skill position players. 

I think NE likes Mac Jones, which is probably why both Shanahan and Lynch are both in Alabama tomorrow to watch Mac Jones throw.  Jedi mind trick trying to make NE think they will draft Mac Jones, leaving NE with all of the top 4 QBs gone by the time they draft at 15.
