Cant paste the article from Schefter.
Really, what option does Houston have? The horses are out of the barn and Houston has no idea of how to get them back in. The incoming coach(no matter who he is) will have a disaster on his hands even if Mngmt. refuses to trade Watson. Only winning can change things and Texans play in a tough division with no 1st or 2nd rd. picks.
Frazier, Biennemy, Bowles or McCown have a decision. Lose the next 2 years with Watson and a depleted roster or trade him, restock with a new Qb, and additional pieces moving forward. Fans upset but at management. You have 2 seasons to show positive progress with two 1st rd. picks in ‘22 & ‘23. This is a no brainer.
That’s a good situation for any coach to walk into. You’re choice of Qb and the ability to build around him. You may say that’s what the Jets should do...... but you have a much better situation for Watson here in NY. We still have 1st rd. picks this year and next plus 4 additional top 100 picks plus two 5th (130, 138) & pick 162 and 215. We also have over $70 m in cap space and a few key pieces in place.
Add to this a complete coaching staff headed up by a passionate leader of men with great communication skills and an understanding of what it takes to win! I would get my Watson jersey tomorrow if it were available. Beef up the OL and Edge in FA, draft another top WR and CB in draft and fill in the pieces. 8-8 or better next year.
