Deshaun Watson reportedly still wants to get out of Houston.

According to Tom Pelissero, the star dual-threat quarterback still wants to be traded as he faces more than 20 lawsuits alleging sexual assault and misconduct. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

Watson also won’t attend OTAs with the Texans.

Watson might want to be traded, but he shouldn’t get his hopes too high. His value has to be in the basement right now as he fights against multiple accusers.

With no guarantee that he’ll be able to suit up in 2020, it’s hard to see a team give up a lot for him. How many draft picks is a GM going to risk for a guy with such an uncertain future?

The answer isn’t many at all.

The Texans know how much value Watson had before everything fell apart with the franchise. They might as well hang onto him for a bit and see how everything shakes out.

If the situation with the lawsuits gets cleared up his value, might bounce back. That’s a much better place for the Texans to be in than dumping him for cheap.
