Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson didn’t play at all last year and isn’t expected to play in Houston ever again. But Texans coach Lovie Smith thinks Watson will be playing somewhere, and he hopes that gets resolved soon.

Smith said today that he can be patient, but he’s hoping for a prompt resolution.

“I know Deshaun is an excellent football player. Excellent football players need to be playing somewhere in the NFL. Hopefully that’ll happen, and if it’s not with us, somewhere else. As I see it, both of us, eventually, are going to benefit from the situation, I just can’t wait for that to speed up a little bit,” Smith said.

Watson is accused of sexual misconduct with 22 different female massage therapists, and those accusations could put Watson in legal jeopardy as well as getting him suspended by the NFL. But there are still some teams willing to trade for Watson when trades become possible at the start of the league year in two weeks. And that may be when the Texans send Watson elsewhere.

  1. Keep pushing coach. If you don’t apply pressure Caserio and Deshaun’s lawyers will keep stalling.

  2. Speedy resolution. Well been almost a year and they have not resolved even one of them much less 22.

  3. He’s done. Damaged goods. The coach has no control over any aspect of the situation but even if he did and even if watson is exonerated no other organization will want to answer questions about him on a daily basis.
