Things could get a bit awkward in Houston between the Texans and Deshaun Watson.

Earlier in the week, it was revealed that Watson had requested a trade from the team after a falling out with Texans owner Cal McNair.

Apparently, Watson is willing to “play hardball” and is threatening to sit out if he doesn’t get traded.

My sources have told me that Deshaun Watson has requested a trade. He requested a trade several weeks ago. He’s made it abundantly clear, I do not want to play for this organization, and what I was told he said I am willing to play hardball in order to get my way out of here.

He does not trust Cal McNair, he does not trust the front office, he doesn’t like the culture they’ve cultivated

On Friday morning, Texans GM Nick Caserio responded to Watson’s trade demand by reiterating that the team had “zero interest” in trading their franchise QB this offseason.

If Watson refuses to play it could cost him $620k a week per game missed. It’s going to be real interesting to see who wins the staredown between the Texans and Watson this offseason.
