There are a lot of questions surrounding Deshaun Watson’s immediate future at the moment.
The only thing that seems certain right now is that Watson’s time with the Houston Texans is done.
After being selected by Houston in the first round of the 2017 NFL Draft, Watson quickly evolved into one of the better quarterbacks in the NFL. However, by the time the 2020 season ended Waston had become soured on the organization to the point that he asked to be traded.
Then came the lawsuits. More that 20 civil suits have been filed against the former Clemson quarterback accusing him of sexual misconduct. While Watson and his attorney’s have always maintained his innocence, the accusations alone have brought not only the trade talks, but his career to a screeching halt.
On Monday, first-year Texans general manager Nick Caserio, spoke with John McClain of the Houston Chronicle on Sports Radio 610, publicly commenting on the Watson situation for the first time in weeks.
“We’re taking it one day at a time and really control the things we can control,” Caserio said.
While Cesario was careful not to say very much outside of how the organization will respect the process, it does sound like the the team is hoping to have something worked out before the start of training camp.
“I don’t have any additional comments about anything,” Caserio said. “I think we’re respectful of what’s happening, respectful of the process and everybody that’s involved. The most important thing is for all of us, the coaches and players and myself included, is to focus on the things we can control. As we get more information, as we get closer to training camp, we’ll try to make the best decision for the Houston Texans, whatever that entails.”
