Deshaun Watson Trade: This NFC Team Reportedly Will Make ‘Strong Push’

Could Watson land in the NFC?


January 28, 2021

The Deshaun Watson trade rumors are heating up, to say the least.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter on Thursday reported that Watson recently submitted an official trade request to the Houston Texans. The 25-year-old quarterback, reportedly unhappy with the franchise’s leadership, holds a no-trade clause and, ultimately, control of his own destiny.

But where will Watson land?

NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport offered some insight, including one team, the Carolina Panthers, that could make a “strong push” for a Watson trade.

“Where could he go? A lot of places,” Rapoport said Thursday afternoon on NFL Network. “I would say the New York Jets would be theoretically a possibility. The Dolphins of course would be right up there. Don’t sleep on the Carolina Panthers. They are a team I’m told that is going to be aggressive in potentially acquiring Deshaun Watson. You also have the Bears. Hard to imagine the Colts will get him because they’re in the same division.”

Obviously, this is a major story, and one that could change the balance of power in the NFL.

Watson is coming off perhaps his best season as a pro.
