The situation in Houston between QB Deshaun Watson and the Texans is starting to get real awkward as the two sides refuse to budge from their current stances.

For the past few months, Watson has insisted that he wants to be traded by the team but on Thursday, ESPN’s Dianni Russini revealed that the Texans are refusing to trade him and are avoiding having conversations with teams that are interested in acquiring the disgruntled QB.

Russini’s report comes just days after Watson met with the Texans’ new head coach David Culley for the first time and straight up told him he has no intention of playing another snap for the team.

Last month NFL insider Chris Simms reported that sources are telling him that Watson is willing to sit out the year if he’s not traded by the Texans

I’ve been led to believe this—that there’s no way that Deshaun Watson will play for the Houston Texans again,. “I have been told by somebody that I trust that says ‘Deshaun Watson will not play for the Houston Texans ever again, and he’s willing to sit out football for the year if he has to.’ That’s where I’ve been led to understand this situation and where it’s at right now, and like I said, it’s someone that I trust very much.”

If Watson does indeed follow through on his promise to sit out the season he would end up sacrificing $620k per game in forfeited salary.
