Report: Deshaun Watson has narrowed decision to 2 teams

A Deshaun Watson trade could be completed in the very near future, as the star quarterback is said to have narrowed his decision down to two teams.

Watson met with the New Orleans Saints a second time on Wednesday night, according to a report from Nick Underhill. Aaron Wilson of Pro Football Network notes that Saints general Mickey Loomis has been described as “determined” to land Watson. The three-time Pro Bowler is expected to choose either the Saints or Atlanta Falcons.

The Falcons entered the Watson sweepstakes later than some other teams, but the interest is clearly mutual. Watson grew up in Georgia and worked for the Falcons as a ball boy. He is said to have reached out to the team personally, though most believe the Saints are the favorite to trade for Watson.

Watson has a no-trade clause, so he essentially gets to choose where he ends up. There’s always a chance a surprise team could jump in late, and we know one other NFC team has been extremely aggressive in pursuing him.
