DeShaun Watson's Texans departure seems inevitable

I want Watson, and I'm willing to trade 3 1sts.

That said, in your scenario, it's Darnold + Sewell + at least one more first rounder, if not two. 

I can understand those who balk at three firsts. Myself I'm not crazy about 3 1sts for any player - but a situation like this has to be the exception. 25 y/o FQB and we just netted 2 1sts and a 3rd for a SS. It lines up fairly perfectly. 

The problem is Sam Darnold being bad. Objectively.

Yikes

I watched and this is not true and the splits back me up.  He threw for more yards in the 1st half of games then he did in the 2nd, he had 15 TDs in the first half vs 21 in the 2nd.  He had 700 more y

From the Texans perspective I think they would prefer the Jets because with Miami they would be trading back for their own number three overall pick- egg on your face, it’s just too much. You also justify it by saying the Jets have a higher pick at 2 overall.

Agree there. Watson has a no trade clause though. On the small these reports are true will be very interesting.

We finally shrug off the yolk of the Evil Empire and we get two stud QBs in our division to fill the void. Would be very Jetsy.

The two people I'd be the most unhappy with would be Mac for missing out on Watson in the first place, and my Dad for making me a fan of this team.

Relax. Didn't happen yet. Maybe Watson ends up somewhere else.. and maybe Josh Allen keeps going to Failure Palmer brothers camp and turns back into a pumpkin. Ya never know.

No I’m not blind to ALL the circumstances around Watson, you fans are just salivating at his fantasy production the kid hasn’t won a ******* thing in the NFL and you will all say well he had no help blah blah blah, well yeah so let’s trade every ******* pick to pay this guy 40 million a year with the worst roster by far in football and expect him to be our savior.

SHUT THE **** UP you GM worse then ******* Macc if you want to give up the farm for this problem.

He won his division twice and won a playoff game.  Are you looking for Super Bowl wins as validation?  Pretty slim pickings, no?

Ultimately I don’t think we get him, but move over, I’m getting in for the ride. 

I hope you're not wearing anything you wouldn't want to get stained.

If we go into next season with Sam Darnold and only Sam Darnold, when we have the NUMBER TWO OVERALL PICK, and the slightest chance at Watson.. someone needs to get their dick kicked in. 

I have hope JD isn’t doing this. Self preservation is a powerful thing. If I am wrong, I’m full on the JD is a bust wagon.

Don't forget about the 1st round pick the Jets will get back when they trade Sam Dar-know... 😃

Thank you I almost forget the best part: the belief that Sam is going to net us a first but Watson stinks and not worth anything in trade lol

How did he do when his roster was stripped after he got paid?  And now trade all of our picks to pay him and have a sh*t roster still if not the worst why would anyone expect more then 4 wins like he got this year?

To say the Jets must do "all that they can to get Watson" is absurd. It obviously should depend on the asking price. My personal feeling is I'm not trading anything more than a 2nd, preferably a 3rd for what? A disgruntled 4 year veteran?

With that said, Deshaun Watson is a good QB. Getting him and inserting him into a QB competition with Sammy is an excellent scenario for the team. It will most definitely set Sammys A$$ on fire. It will let him know with no uncertain terms that the days of him being forgiven for regressing are OVER.

But I'm also unwilling to give up a 1st rounder. The Jets need too much help all over the team to be pulling silly sh*t with 1st rounders, let alone the 2nd overall pick. The mere suggestions is purely psychotic and very clearly a move Mac would have made.

I hate to admit it but Allen is the real deal I dont see him turning back into a pumpkin. We're gonna have to deal with him for a decade. Also with Watson, realistically speaking I dont think there's many potential landing spots other than Miami, Jets, and a few other spots. Not many teams can afford the draft capital and take on the contract.

He was just discussing a hypothetical, which is all this is at the moment. It is entirely possible Allen declines, but as of right now reality is that Mac picked the wrong guy 2 years in a row and that decision may very well (and might've already) put us in Football Purgatory for years.

Some of us actually watched the games

 

Watson loaded up on garbage time stats.  Fuller was phenomenal before getting popped for PEDs

Lead the NFL in passing yards?

Threw 33 TDs?

Only 7 INTs?

Id expect JD with $90 or so in cap room and still left with enough picks, would still be able to put together a respectable team.  Not leave the Jets with a Texans like roster for Saleh and Co.

After 20 years of Patriot battery and abuse we'd then be progressing to the football equivalent of double-penetration by 2 of the top 3 young QB's in the league for a decade.

I’m sure a guy who sees ghosts and just got outplayed by Flacco’s ghost  will look awesome next to these two 4 games a year.

This is an absolutely absurd take. If the player we take at #2 overall becomes half as impactful a player as Deshaun, then the Jets hit a home run. If the asking price for Deshaun was just the #2 overall pick (its not, not even close) you do it without hesitation and thank your lucky stars that the Texans are as incompetent as it gets

Its not just 3 firsts if you trade the 2nd pick..  you can potentially trade down and pick up another first if not more so suddenly its 4 firsts and a 3rd...

Jamal being traded for 2 late round firsts a lot different than 3 firsts with one of them being 2nd overall.

Too much.

Cap it at Seattle's first, lower first next year, and a 2nd...

Or 2nd overall and a 2nd and 3rd.  You can recoup the 2nd trading darnold.

If we look at recent big trades for guidance on value for 'premium players in their prime' we look to Ramsey, Tunsil and JAdams (lolz). All three went for at least two firsts. 

Watson plays quarterback. 

I think the conversation starts at the #2 + another first rounder.

I get that he's disgruntled, so conceivably that removes some leverage from the Texans... but then you have to factor in the sheer number of teams that would be interested, and suddenly there's a bidding war.

Long story short, I think the price will be at least two #1's.

Hey, if you give the guy a pro bowl supporting cast headlined by Hercules, and Wonder Woman he might be able to split the series every couple years.
