J.J. Watt’s extrication from the Houston Texans was a little easier than it has been for Deshaun Watson.
He wants Watson to be happy.
âI love Deshaun. I love Deshaun,â Watt said Tuesday during his introductory press conference, via ProFootballTalk. âWe speak often. Heâs an incredible player, but heâs an incredible person. Heâs a special human being and heâs obviously unbelievably talented as an athlete, but he is also just a great person. And I tell him, the one thing I want for Deshaun Watson is for him to be happy. He deserves it and I want him to be happy. So whatever that looks like for him, thatâs what I want for him.â
Certainly not an unfair ask.
Of course, it seems like any shot of Watson being happy won’t come to pass if he’s still in Houston. He is adamant that he wants to get traded somewhere, but thus far the Texans reportedly aren’t budging.
We’ve got a long way to go until training camp — or even OTAs, for that matter — so there’s plenty of time for the Texans to grant the 25-year-old’s request.
