Deshaun Watson open to waiving no-trade clause for at least 2 teams?

The Deshaun Watson sweepstakes have heated up considerably since a grand jury declined to indict him on Friday, and the interest in the star quarterback appears to be mutual with at least two teams.

Watson is expected to meet with the New Orleans Saints and Carolina Panthers this week, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Other teams are also in the mix.

Watson has a full no-trade clause in his contract with the Houston Texans. The team has given him permission to meet with potential trade suitors. If Watson did not want to play in New Orleans or Carolina, he probably would not bother talking to either team.

A report over the weekend claimed the Saints and Panthers have both made formal trade offers for Watson. Carolina has been aggressively pursuing Watson for quite some time.

Watson wants out of Houston, but the no-trade clause gives him control over his future. There has been talk that he is not willing to play for at least one NFC team.
