Watson Changes Mind, Picks Browns
ESPN’s Adam Schefter and other NFL reporters and writers are reporting that Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson, who originally told the Browns that he would not waive his no trade clause to play in Cleveland, has changed his mind and wants to play for the Browns.
Schefter broke the news on social media and Watson seemed to confirm it on his Instagram account by posting a picture of himself in a#4 Browns jersey and saying “Letssss Goooo”!
Internet reports say the Browns will give Houston (3) first round picks, (1) third round pick and (1) fourth round pick in the trade.
Besides Watson, the Browns will reportedly will get (1) fifth round pick.
The Browns are also reportedly reworking Watson’s contract to guarantee him $230 million dollars over 5 years.
Watson, who is 26, still has 22 civil lawsuits against him for inappropriate conduct and alleged sexual assault during massages he received. He did not play last season.
Watson’s last full season in the NFL was in 2020 when he threw for 4,823 yars with 33 td’s and 7 int’s. He also rushed for 444 yards and 3 scores.
