Top 10 Potential Landing Spots For Deshaun Watson

Well, Deshaun Watson officially requested a trade from the Houston Texans today (January 28th) after the hire of David Culley as their next coach. There are a few teams in need of a QB in the NFL so someone would definitely be willing to pay the price for a player with his type of talent.
The voting period for this list has ended.
The Top Ten
1 Miami Dolphins The Miami Dolphins are a professional American football franchise located in the Miami metropolitan area.

He has expressed interest in playing here, and for good reason. They were on the verge of the playoffs. Landing a player like Watson would make them much better and could pose a threat to Buffalo and the AFC as a whole.

2 San Francisco 49ers The San Francisco 49ers are a professional American football team located in the San Francisco Bay Area.

I think San Francisco would be a good fit. They have weapons, and they're just as dangerous as anyone when healthy. They made the Super Bowl with Jimmy Garoppolo.

They can definitely make it with Watson and win a ring. They are still in win-now mode. If he doesn't go to Chicago, I'd like to see him go here.

3 Indianapolis Colts The Indianapolis Colts are an American football team based in Indianapolis, Indiana. The Colts compete in the National Football League as a member club of the American Football Conference South division.

The Colts lost Phillip Rivers to retirement. Jacoby Brissett isn't the answer, and Andrew Luck isn't walking back in that door. They need someone like Watson to push them over the edge.

The problem is, do you really think Houston would let him walk to a division rival?

4 Washington The Washington Commanders are a professional American football team based in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area.

In 2020, Washington after 87 years got rid of the Redskins trademark due to it being labeled racist to native culture. It was named the Washington Football Team until February... read more

Washington has a nice young defense forming. They have pieces on offense but no long-term quarterback solution. Watson could make Washington a really scary team.

5 Detroit Lions The Detroit Lions are a professional American football team based in Detroit, Michigan. The Lions compete in the National Football League as a member club of the league's National Football Conference North division... read more

The Lions are going to get a new quarterback and are finally getting rid of Stafford after he's been in Detroit for over a decade. Who knows, they might deal him to Houston for Watson. This could potentially boost the Lions' offense significantly.

6 Dallas Cowboys The Dallas Cowboys are a professional American football team based in the Dallas–Fort Worth metroplex. The Cowboys compete in the National Football League as a member club of the league's National Football Conference East division.

Dallas is still in negotiations with Dak Prescott. I don't know if he will stay or not, but if they can't get a deal done this time, Jerry Jones would be the one to propose a deal to bring in the quarterback from the other Texas team in the NFL, Deshaun Watson. That would get them their quarterback and give them a leg up on the other teams in their division.

This is somewhat likely if they can't get a deal with Dak, which may or may not happen. I think this injury showed them how important he truly is to the team.

7 Chicago Bears The Chicago Bears are a professional American football team in Chicago, Illinois. The Bears compete in the National Football League as a member club of the league's National Football Conference North division.

I really hope that he comes here. I know we missed him in 2017, but we really regret that decision. Besides, we have a good defense, and the offense desperately needs a good quarterback under center.

Then we could go from mediocrity to decency and respectability.

8 New York Jets The New York Jets are a professional American football team located in the New York metropolitan area.

He has expressed interest in going here, which is weird, but maybe he sees something we don't. Robert Saleh could be a good coach, but they ruined Sam Darnold, so I don't know. Maybe they get him and take care of their quarterback, then use the number 2 overall pick for the offensive line or DeVante Smith.

Basically, they wouldn't have to use it on a quarterback.

9 Pittsburgh Steelers The Pittsburgh Steelers are a professional American football team based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, that competes in the National Football League. Pittsburgh Steelers have won the most Super Bowls with 6 which currently stands today.

Pittsburgh may want to move on from Big Ben. He's not getting any younger, and their offense was very inconsistent. Deshaun Watson has the ability to change that.

There's no DeAndre Hopkins, but Pittsburgh could provide him with better weapons than he had in Houston.

10 Tampa Bay Buccaneers The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are a professional American football franchise based in Tampa, Florida. The Buccaneers currently compete in the National Football League as a member team of the National Football Conference South division.
The Contenders
11 New England Patriots The New England Patriots are a professional American football team based in the Greater Boston region. New England Patriots are one of the few teams to have 5+ wins in the Super Bowl.

The Patriots are expected to part ways with Cam Newton. He didn't exactly live up to what Brady did. He had flashes where he was okay, but that's all.

This is pretty unlikely, but who knows? Bill Belichick, if he wanted to, could make a move for Watson. But I wouldn't hold my breath if I'm the Patriots. The odds are low.

12 Carolina Panthers The Carolina Panthers are a professional American football team based in Charlotte, North Carolina, that competes in the National Football League.
13 Las Vegas Raiders The Las Vegas Raiders are a professional American football franchise based in Las Vegas. The Raiders began playing in 1960 as a member club of the American Football League; they have been a member club of the National Football League since the 1970 AFL–NFL merger... read more
14 Denver Broncos The Denver Broncos are an American football team based in Denver, Colorado. The Broncos compete in the National Football League as a member club of the league's American Football Conference West division.
15 Kansas City Chiefs The Kansas City Chiefs are a professional American football team based in Kansas City, Missouri. The Chiefs compete in the National Football League as a member club of the league's American Football Conference West division.
