NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reports the Broncos were among the teams interested in the Texans quarterback and the Broncos may be open to trading away former All Pro cornerback Kyle Fuller.
“Multiple teams are still interested in trading for Deshaun Watson. I know there was a report earlier in the week about the Dolphins, they are not alone. Among the teams that have been discussed over the past several months, the Panthers, the Broncos, the Eagles and some others,” Rapoport said Sunday.
Rapoport continued: “His legal situation is still as of right now unsettled. Still of course the civil and criminal allegations of sexual misconduct. I’m told there are still teams interested in trading for him despite the fact that this is still unsettled. Watson also has a no trade clause. The belief is he would waive it for Miami, unclear as of now what he would do for the others.”
OutKick previously reported Watson would consider waiving his no-trade clause for teams other than the Dolphins to clear the way for a trade before the Nov. 2 deadline.
But just as trade talks approach, questions about Watson trade costs still linger. It’s clear the Texans plan to sit Watson all season, but that hasn’t stopped the team from lowering their trade demands for the quarterback. It appears the Texans are seeking three first round picks and two second round picks for the 3-time Pro Bowler.
