Watson asked Houston Texans to trade in January; Watson has already received a $ 160 million four-year contract and will face $ 50,000 in fines daily if he misses training camp.
Deshawn Watson is set to report to the Houston Texans about the start of training camp on Sunday, but according to numerous reports, demand for the quarterback trade remains.
When he reports on Sunday, it will be his first face-to-face meeting with new coach David Callie. Callie was hired to replace Bill O’Brien with new general manager Nick Caserio.
The Texans released the core of the JJ Watt franchise, continuing a trend that started with O’Brien, who then served as general manager and head coach, sending DeAndre Hopkins to the Arizona Cardinals in a 2020 deal. The Cardinals made the All-Pro receiver the highest paid player in their position.
Watson has already received a $ 160 million four-year contract and will face $ 50,000 in fines daily if he misses training camp.
Watson formally requested the trade before Callie was hired, and through his agent shared his opinion that he believed his opinion and opinion would be sought before the team nominated O’Brien’s replacement.
While Texans said they were “not interested” in the Watson trade, Caserio called the accusations of attacking Watson by more than 20 women “troubling.”
Many civil lawsuits in Harris County involve women associated with Watson through massage.
The trial in these cases has been postponed for at least six months, according to the Houston Chronicle.
The NFL has launched its own investigation, and based on these findings, Watson could be fined or suspended.
