Rotational Player and Threatening Starter's Job
I don't know if it is a ploy. I think Caserio wants to keep Watson. You gotta assume a big reason why he chose to go to the Texans after years of saying no to other teams is that he feels Watson is a QB that he can build a Super Bowl contender around. Why would he got to Houston and unload him unless the relationship is so toxic that it is irreparable. Not sure they are there yet.

Considering it appears they don't talk and the QB wants coaches hired for social justice; it can also be that everyone keeps the hype going and then someone bites.

$40M+ cap hits are another consideration. Caserio needs to be fully in tune where the cap is going because that type of hit most likely means a QB that can elevate a team to something probably north of 4-12.

A very high pick= drafting a QB.

Remember, the only thing better than having a very valuable asset is having an asset that everyone over values and will over pay to acquire.

Also, go look at what Houston is paying Caserio.

They can just keep Watson. There is nothing saying they have to trade Watson. What is Watson's options if the Texans don't trade him? Sit out and cost himself millions and millions of dollars? This isn't a contract dispute where he thinks he is getting underpaid. He is getting paid top dollar and just is unhappy.

Then they are giving up the opportunity to get a top 3 pick in this year's draft. That means passing on Zack Wilson. If Houston's smart, they will trade Watson before the draft. It's clear he's not happy with them. There's no point in prolonging this.

Saying Watson wants the coach chosen "for social justice" is the most embarrassingly disingenuous thing anyone has posted here in a long time. FYI, the coach he's mad about them hiring is black. He's mad because the new guy sucks at coaching and wants a chance to win.

If you don't understand the football reasons why Watson wants out, I don't know what to tell you. All I know is the Texans aren't going anywhere with this "Patriots South" movement and Watson knows it too.

I thought the idea was to bring in talent not unload it. What do I know.

Bring in young talent who can stay for years to come. Gilmore has just another year or two at his peak. Since we have cap space, I don't see the immediate need to unload him unless it's part of a package for a QB we really like. But I see the logic of wanting to move him, especially given our depth at the position.
