With NFL fans waiting to see where Deshaun Watson will play next, Peter King has drawn up a wild deal that would also involve Kirk Cousins and Jimmy Garoppolo.
While the Carson Wentz trade to the Colts shook things up in the NFL, it doesn’t look like that’s going be the only big-time quarterback move this offseason. That’s because Deshaun Watson has made it quite clear he doesn’t want to play for the Houston Texans anymore.
With the superstar signal-caller hoping to be traded, could we see an earth-shattering deal go down in the coming months? Well, NFL insider Peter King has put a three-team deal on the table and it would blow up the league as we know it.
Peter King’s proposed deal involving Deshaun Watson would set the NFL on fire
In King’s offer proposal, he has Watson going to Minnesota, Kirk Cousins heading to San Francisco and Jimmy Garoppolo suiting up for the Texans, while Houston would also be receiving a flurry of draft picks. While at first glance King’s trade scenario seems hectic, it would make a ton of sense for everyone involved.
As things stand, Houston isn’t in a rush to trade Watson, but again, he’s voiced his displeasure with the organization and he doesn’t want to be there anymore, plain and simple. At the same time, the Texans know Watson’s value and they aren’t going to trade him for a bag of peanuts.
They’re going to want at least multiple first-round picks and perhaps some young starters as well. We just have to wait and see which team will be ready to pony up and meet their demands.
Whoever lands Watson will be adding one of the more electric signal-callers in the game to their offense. Stay tuned to see who ends up getting the job done.
