2 NFC teams reportedly have strongest interest in Deshaun Watson
Deshaun Watson’s legal situation is still up in the air, but at least two teams still have interest in trading for the Houston Texans quarterback.
The Carolina Panthers and Washington Commanders have maintained interest in Watson, according to Aaron Wilson of Pro Football Network. The Philadelphia Eagles have also done extensive research into Watson, but the quarterback is not interested in waiving his no-trade clause to go to the Eagles.
The Panthers have consistently been linked to Watson, and reportedly made a serious effort to acquire him last season. Washington’s interest is also logical considering how desperate they are for quarterback help.
Watson’s most prominent suitor for much of the last year appears to be out of the picture. That could make for a very interesting trade market as the offseason unfolds.
