Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson watched his organization strangely ship off All-Pro receiver DeAndre Hopkins this offseason.
It seems, however, the signal-caller has an idea for another All-Pro he wouldn’t mind seeing fill in: Antonio Brown.

Brown, of course, remains a free agent after an 11-day stint with the New England Patriots in September.

Brown also posted a video of him working out with Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson earlier this week.
