Jay Glazer hints that something is brewing on the Deshaun Watson front

On Sunday, Jay Glazer of Fox Sports reported that the Texans have softened their stance regarding the expectations for a Deshaun Watson trade. On Wednesday, Glazer dropped something far more vague — and far more intriguing — about the situation.

Keep your eyes on this situation,” Glazer tweeted in specific reference to the Texans and Watson.

The Dolphins want Watson. More specifically, Dolphins owner Stephen Ross wants Watson. The sticking point has been the compensation demanded by the Texans. If they’re softening, a deal could be done.

As recently suggested, other teams could get involved — especially if they sense that the Texans want less than they’ve demanded and that the Dolphins may be closing in on getting it done. In this regard, the Eagles make sense.

Watson has a no-trade clause, and he could be hell bent on going to Miami. That would make interest elsewhere irrelevant. What’s most relevant is the current trade deadline. November 2. Any deal for Watson that will happen before March 2022 needs to happen before November 2, 2021.

And if Glazer says to keep your eyes on the situation, it makes sense to do so.

  1. Compare this to the Shawn Oakman case and it’s pretty clear that Watson is getting preferential treatment because he’s a star quarterback

  2. Miami does not have a number 1 pick in 2022. That hampers the Phins’ ability to swing a trade for Watson.

  3. Watson will be traded and eventually play Week 7. When the investigation is over, league will say Watson missed the first 6 games of the year so punishment was already served.

  4. Matt Schaub is statistically, the greatest Texans quarterback in team history. With all of the hype surrounding Watson, he’ll end tied with Schaub for total division championships. Ha, how the world turns.

  5. Crazy to think a franchise would mortgage its future for Watson, an above average QB but one who likely is going to miss an extensive period while suspended.

  6. Any team that pays that much for Watson is foolish. He’s good, but not good enough to potentially give away the next ten years of development over one guy….

  7. You really have to have the owner on board to make a deal for Watson and his legal issues.

    I think it’s a good bet Watson heads to Miami. The question is what do the Texans get in return? Tua and 3 firsts? Do they even want Tua?

  8. He will be a Dolphin Player soon. However they had made the right choice in Herbert we woud not be having this conversation. You will probably get a second for Tua who will end up as a journeyman QB. Just as we said.

    Glazer doesnt know anything, /nobody is signing him with all of these cases pending.

    He’s already signed ! He has a contract.

    ——————–

    I believe they have San Fran’s number one pick in next year’s draft. They have two first round picks in 2023.

    The Dolphins own the 49ers’ 1st round pick in the next draft as well as the 2023 draft. How are they hampered?

  12. Miami has a 1st rounder next year and 2 the following year.
    They won’t for long when they trade for Watson though.

  13. The way this Season is going, I could see a few teams needing a qb upgrade:

    Steelers
    Giants
    Lions
    Colts

    If the Dolphins quit on Tua so quickly, he could easily be another Tannehill meaning that he goes to another team and becomes a winning playoff qb!

  14. The Dolphins traded there 2022 1st round pic to the Eagles, They still have the 49ers 1st in 22. In 2023 they have there own plus the 49ers. So most likely it will be a 2023 1st and maybe a player or two. You have to look at the other variables here … 1. Does Watson want to go to Philly? He has the final word straight up. 2. Does the team trading for Watson have enough cap space? Miami will be in the top 3 in cap space next year. Owner Ross will pay Watson out of his own pocket if need be. Kinda like Brady and kraft deals. He’s going to be a Dolphin! Thank god cause we could really use him about now.

  15. Houston screwed up on contracts. They will be lucky to get a nunmber 1 and a player. Otherwise you Houston can continue to pay 165 mil or what ever it was for a bench warmer. There will be some job performance tweaks on the deal like if they make the playoffs or he starts so many games etc etc..

  16. Just hold on folks! They will get him on the cheaper side then the expensive side . I promise you that much.

    ——————————-

    Let’s play a game of guess who

    Player A
    54 games, 17,000 total yards, 121 total td / 36 int / 28-25 record

    Player B
    155 games, 26,000 total yards, 140 total td / 91 int / 47-46 record

    Hint: Both Texans qb and player A is not Matt Schaub

    ———————–
    He hasn’t played because it’s the teams decision and prerogative not to play him. Has nothing to do with pending suspension or time served. You can best believe once a team trades for him the league will all of a sudden wake up and serve up justice. Probably why everybody interested is afraid to acquire him.

  19. The Fins could make this move but I’m not sure how it would play out on game day. You think Watson wants to be running for his life behind this line? Watson holds a better arm and athleticism to Tua and Brissett but I think we’d be getting more of the same. No commitment to the run game. What Miami needs is a 1000 yard rusher. We ain’t getting that behind this line.

  20. Here’s my Budweiser long shot, the Chicago Bears. The Monsters of the Midway send a 1st rounder in 2022 and 2023 along with Justin Fields and some cash. This is about as good a deal as your going to get if your Houston. If you do better than that, well kudos to Nick Caserio for getting a kings ransom.

  21. I’m just hoping that Watson doesn’t change his mind and agree to Philly. They’d go from a bad team with horrible coaching and alot of picks to a bad team with horrible coaching with no picks.

    That’s like thinking the Colts were one Carson Wentz from a deep playoff run.

  22. Jay Glazer’s relevance seems to be waning in recent years. This report has more to do with him than DeShaun Watson. Like a lot of you are saying, wake me up when something happens.

  23. No player is with 3 1st round picks….let alone 2 2nds as well. Texans management must be completely disassociated with reality if they believe they can get that. With Watson’s legal uncertainty, they will be lucky to get a 1st and 2 2nds

  24. So Glazer knows nothing. If a trade happens he says “See! I called it!”. If there’s no trade no one will remember this useless tweet.

  25. Either Stephen Ross knows something we don’t know or he really doesn’t understand the legal system.

  26. With rickety Roethlisberger on his last legs and with Mason Rudolph and The Duckman backing him up, Pittsburgh suddenly makes the most sense as a Deshaun Watson landing spot. With a sound defense, good receivers and a promising running back, the Steelers would be instantly transformed into a likely playoff team.

  27. “When the investigation is over, league will say Watson missed the first 6 games of the year so punishment was already served.”
    ____________

    He hasn’t played because A) He said he’d never play for the Texans again and B) The Texans are scared he’d be instantly suspended if they did try to play him which would even further tank his trade value. The league isn’t going to count that as part of any punishment and unless his legal situation changes for the better they probably are going to suspend him at some time. Plus, even if somebody does trade for him they’re likely not going to just throw him out there instantly as the starter with him having not played at all since last season. There’ll be enough PR issues without the worry he’d come out looking rusty like he’s not worth even half what they gave up in the trade.

  28. Has he been convicted? This country is quick to chop someone’s head off due to allegations.. granted it’s unusual to have so many allegations** but has anyone legitimately seen any proof? I’m just asking….

  29. Watson is going no place until the dust settles on possible criminal cases. He could be looking at multiple rape charges. If convicted, his playing days, if not over, are way in the future. His best bet is to pay off all the plaintiffs in the civil and criminal cases with the criminal plaintiffs agreeing not to press charges. Even if all that happened today, the League would suspend him for at least 8 games. More than likely he will not play this year.
