Deshaun Watson’s future is very up in the air at the moment.
At the beginning of the offseason Watson found himself embroiled in a particularly horrific scandal. Multiple women, primarily those working the healthcare industry, came out and accused him of sexual improprieties.
Despite it all, there appears to at the very least be a chance that Watson will settle with his accusers and be available to play next season. And if that occurs, it seems as though he is still dead set on the Houston Texans trading him.
In fact, he seems to even have one preferred team he’d like to be moved to.
On Thursday, ESPN NFL insider Jeremy Fowler appeared on ‘SportsCenter’ and revealed that Watson has real interest in joining the Denver Broncos.
“Don’t sleep on Denver here because I have been told that Watson has long been intrigued by the Broncos,” he said.
“They have good options on offense, and Denver is believed to be at least one of the teams that’s from afar monitoring the quarterback landscape around the league, Watson included.”
While Watson may want to go to Denver, there is one clear favorite to land his services in a trade – and it isn’t the Broncos.
Moreover, it’s still very possible that he will simply be suspended for the entirety of the 2021-22 NFL season.

Over the course of his career Watson has completed 67.8 percent of his passes for 14,539 yards with 104 touchdowns and 36 picks throughout 54 games. He has also been a threat on the ground, amassing 1,677 rushing yards and 17 rushing touchdowns. Clearly he is very talented, but he also comes with a lot of baggage.
Is Watson ultimately worth the headache that will inevitably accompany him? That’s for each individual organization to figure out on their own.
