The Houston Texans are now indicating they are willing to trade star quarterback Deshaun Watson after initial reluctance to deal the 25-year-old.

The Texans say they have not received serious offers for Watson. Houston has been asking for five high draft picks and two starting-caliber players, according to ESPN’s Chris Mortensen

“I’m 100%  sure he’ll be traded at some point in the coming future,” said Watson’s personal quarterback coach Quincy Avery. According to Avery, Watson still wants out of Houston and both sides are ready to move on. The market value would be fairly high and if Watson were to be traded the Texans would get a lot of players in return. 

The Denver Broncos, Miami Dolphins, and Philadelphia Eagles are all rumored to have expressed interest in acquiring Watson.

Watson had first asked to be traded in January after the team had hired Nick Caserio as their new general manager.

Two months later, the first of 22 sexual assault accusations were filed against Watson. The cases are still pending and the criminal investigation still has not been closed.

Since being drafted by the Texans in 2017, Watson has become one of the league's top passers. He has made three Pro Bowls and led the league in passing yards in 2020.

Watson reported to camp Sunday morning ahead of Monday's first practice.
