Deshaun Watson is still extremely unhappy with the Houston Texans and it appears that he’s serious about possibly requesting a trade.

On Sunday, ESPN’s Adam Schefter revealed that Watson’s anger with Texans owner Cal McNair is at a 10 after McNair changed course and decided to hire New England Patriots director of player personnel Nick Caserio


Had the Houston Texans stayed the course and followed the recommendation of the search firm Korn Ferry, they likely would have hired Pittsburgh Steelers vice president of football and business administration Omar Khan as their next general manager, league sources told ESPN.

Khan and ESPN Monday Night Football analyst Louis Riddick were the two finalists before Texans owner Cal McNair changed his mind, ignored the recommendation of the search firm he paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to do weeks of work and hired former New England Patriots director of player personnel Nick Caserio, sources said.

Multiple people in the Texans organization, including quarterback Deshaun Watson, were upset with how Houston’s search took a sudden and unexpected turn, hiring a man that Korn Ferry did not include on its list of candidates.

NFL insider Chris Mortensen is now reporting that Watson would consider lifting his no-trade clause if traded to the Miami Dolphins in a package that would include Tua Tagovailoa.

The Miami Dolphins, who own the third and eighteenth pick in the upcoming NFL draft have plenty of assets to make a trade work but we’ll have to wait and see what happens when Watson meets with Cal McNair.
