Texans star quarterback Deshaun Watson reportedly met with newly hired head coach David Culley last Friday. Apparently it didn’t matter much because Watson still wants out.
Tough year for Houston.
Per sources, Texans QB Deshaun Watson met with new Texans head coach David Culley last Friday. In that meeting Watson reiterated that he wants to be traded and told Culley he has no intention of playing for the Texans again. No change from Watson’s end. He remains dug in.— Dan Graziano (@DanGrazianoESPN) February 25, 2021
This report has to be accurate since Watson tweeted this just three hours ago:
Loyalty is everything. Don’t you EVER forget it.— Deshaun Watson (@deshaunwatson) February 25, 2021
We don’t want to put words in his mouth, but the timing here is impeccable. It’s likely that Watson has no intentions of repairing this relationship and is inadvertently telling the organization they’re wasting their time holding on. Texans GM Nick Caserio has, of course, stated multiple times that he has no desire to trade his quarterback. How ’bout now?
This dumpster fire of a situation probably ends with him being traded. No way he makes it to training camp, right? Guess we’ll see.
