Deshaun Watson will consider waiving his no-trade clause for teams other than the Miami Dolphins to clear the way for a trade before the Nov. 2 deadline, a source told ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler.
“Multiple teams are interested in Watson, and although his interest in joining the Dolphins has become a worst-kept secret of sorts in league circles, the source disputed the notion that it’s simply Miami or bust,” Fowler reports. “Watson will consider potential options as they come, according to the source.”
That brings us to the Carolina Panthers. ESPN says Carolina has emerged as a possible landing spot for Watson. Carolina — finally — benched Sam Darnold on Sunday. Darnold is clearly not the answer in Carolina.
The Panthers had an interest in trading for Watson early in the offseason before sexual assault allegations against Watson surfaced. However, Houston general manager Nick Caserio wasn’t engaging with teams at the time.
According to Fowler, the Broncos are also a wild card contender for Watson. Still, the Broncos may avoid trading for Watson, knowing the Packers could move off Aaron Rodgers after the season.
The Panthers and Broncos both sit at 3-4, while the Dolphins hold a 1-6 record. All three teams have talented rosters in need of a QB.
