Quarterback DeShaun Watson is unhappy with the Houston Texans, and if Watson demands a trade, could he be headed to the Jets? And was Watson scouting places to live in New Jersey?

Watson posted a picture on Snapchat on Thursday. On the photo, a location sticker showed he was in Edgewater, which is approximately 50 minutes from the Jets practice facility. Let the speculation begin!

Watson has been critical of the Texans about the team’s process to hire a new coach. He reportedly wanted the Texans to interview Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy, and the Texans, who did not initially request to speak to Bieniemy, scrambled to add Bieniemy to their list when Watson let his displeasure be known.

Friday, when Texans owner Cal McNair said vice president of football operations Jack Easterby would remain with the team, Watson tweeted that his level of frustration with the franchise was skyrocketing -- and not limited to the coaching search. McNair admitted: “It’s no secret he’s disappointed in the (lack of) communication during the hiring process” of general manager Nick Caserio, too.

 

Watson’s tweet came after ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that Watson’s anger level has reached “a 10″ -- rising from “a 2” after the team traded All-Pro receiver DeAndre Hopkins to the Cardinals last offseason..

 

The Texans will not be able to talk to Bieniemy until the Chiefs are eliminated from the playoffs, or during the bye week before the Super Bowl.

 

The Jets own the second overall pick in the draft and hired 49ers defensive coordinator Robert Saleh to become their new head coach. If the Jets were curious about acquiring Watson, they have the ammunition to do so. Could they dangle quarterback Sam Darnold and the second overall pick? Most Jets fans would like to see that.

So it was Watson hiding in the bushes outside of the facility?! What a twist. 

If the Jets can get a motivated Watson, you MUST say bye to Sam Darnold; give up the #2 pick................... and get Watson Now!!!!

I have no interest because of the cost it would take to get him here. We'd essentially turn into the east coast Texans. Sure we have a franchise QB, but we have little to no talent around him and

Watson has a no trade clause which he would rescind for his chosen team ie he’d pick where he would go if that org had enough assets to trade for him.

99% chance he just stays in Houston- the owner would be strung up if he traded him. I don’t think Watson Jamal’s his way out but that’s just about his only way out

No way we get him.  If he leaves houston he will go to Miami.  They have a lot to offer in a trade 

Key is Watson has a veto provision in his contract that he can in part force where he goes.....

Not all... It's never a good idea when a player gets pissed off publicly that he wasn't involved with the GM and HC search or decision.

NO, NO, and again NO, even though he's better than Sam.

Charlie, don't do this to yourself.  This is a silly article by a writter who is just trying to get some hits.  What would Watson's being in NJ have to do with him playing for the Jets?

If the Jets even smile at him they will lose the #2 pick in the draft, let alone talk to him in their complex.  I doubt very strongly the Texans are going to let Waton walk.  if they do as @jbt said, it very well might be Miami.   They have the draft capital, and can kick Tua in.

That would be a lot of fun for Jets fans, Allen and Watson in the Jets division, while the Jets are marching Darnold out there.

GOOD GRIEF that would be horrible.  :)

IDK do you really want a guy who is willing to sabotage his whole team so one coach gets a opportunity that he apparently isn’t gonna get anywhere else for not demonstrating the ability to do the job?

The team was already sabotaged by Bill O'Brian and ownership

There's absolutely no chance whatsoever of this happening.

With that said, if they seriously would take Darnold and the #2 for Watson, I'd do that in freakin' heartbeat.  Yeah, I get that it seems like he might be a bit of a pain in the ass, but it's hardly like he'd be anywhere close to the first, and when you're talking about franchise QB, then you friggin' deal with it and make it work.  Of course, it's for that exact reason the Texans would never make this deal.

Do what you have to do to get him to QB the Jets. Please!!!!
