The Philadelphia Eagles could be looking for a quarterback. Watson’s no-trade clause makes it difficult to trade him, but the team has the assets to sign a proven young quarterback. The Texans have other options besides Watson, including free agent Marcus Williams and QB Jalen Hurts. In any case, it’s a good sign for the team to take a chance on Watson.
Texans GM Nick Caserio won’t consider Philadelphia as a potential destination
It’s safe to assume Texans GM Nick Caseria won’t consider Philadelphia as a potential destination for Watson. Watson represents the last of the franchise’s proven franchise quarterbacks. He is looking for a replacement for Davis Mills, an injured veteran. This is where the trade won’t be easy, but Caserio might find a way to get out of it.
A deal to get Desean Watson would likely require trade-killing moves from both sides. The Texans have had a history of making mistakes at the trade deadline, and the recent trade of DeAndre Hopkins hasn’t helped matters. Although the Texans might have wanted to trade Watson for a contender, it has been difficult due to the no-trade clause.
The police report is required before a trade can be made. It’s unclear how long it will take to finalize the investigation. The investigation is still ongoing. A decision on whether to press charges against Watson or summon a grand jury is yet to be made. Although the timeframe for a trade from Philadelphia is still unknown, teams interested in Watson’s wide receiver need to get the information they require before trading.
If Caserio were to move Watson, it would mean that he’d restructure the entire roster. Caserio would have to reshuffle the roster and make some tough decisions to keep the team competitive. There’s a chance Caserio could succeed in his new role if he was still coaching.
If the Panthers were willing to waive Watson’s no-trade clause, it’s very likely the team would be interested in acquiring the quarterback. Philadelphia has already been linked to Watson in the past, but he wasn’t interested in waiving his no-trade clause for the team. It is not clear if he will sign with them, but he is motivated and should move Watson if the opportunity presents itself.
Deshaun Watson could be traded by the Texans, who have many assets. Although the Miami Dolphins are the frontrunner to be the quarterback, they won’t trade him until after this draft, so the team may have to wait until after 2022 to trade him. Philadelphia has three first-round draft picks and is an excellent destination for a free agent quarterback.
Watson has a no trade clause in his contract
It is not clear whether the Philadelphia Eagles would trade Watson, who has an no-trade clause in their current contract. The general manager of the Eagles has done extensive research on Watson’s off-field circumstances, regardless of his current contract. Watson’s partisan fan base may have made it difficult for the Eagles’ general manager to make a trade. On the other hand, he might want the warm weather and proximity to the beach.
The Texans won’t do that. The team can fine Watson $50,000 per day he misses mandatory workouts, and that fine cannot be waived. If Watson were to miss multiple workouts, his contract language could cause the Texans to lose some of his signing bonus. This is not an issue because Watson won’t publicly demand a trade.
In addition to Watson’s no-trade clause, the NFL’s no-trade rules apply to quarterbacks, as well. Watson’s clause is a popular one. He would waive his clause if he was traded to another team. This would ensure his security. However, if Watson were traded to the Eagles, the NFL’s no trade rules could be violated.
The NFL is monitoring Watson’s situation and may be open to making a deal if it gives Watson leverage. In fact, the NFL has punished players with no criminal charges despite no trade clauses. Watson is not exempted from this situation. He’d welcome a chance to play alongside a big, physical wide receiver. And he’d benefit from the chemistry with Hopkins.
Watson cannot be traded before the March 16th 2022 league year. This means that a team that offers the Texans a high draft pick may not want to part with Watson. It will be the largest trade in NFL history, provided that Watson is traded for enough value. The Texans have reportedly asked for three first-round picks and two second-round picks in return.
Marcus Williams is an Eagles free agent
The Philadelphia Eagles could use a new free safety. They have been building around Brian Dawkins, who forced Jim Johnson to build around him, and Malcolm Jenkins, who was the focal point of Jin Schwartz’s defense until he was cut by the Saints last offseason. Marcus Williams would be an excellent fit in Philadelphia. The free agent safety is only 25 years old, and has elite ball skills.
With two starting safeties and one starting corner set to hit free agency this spring, the Eagles are expected to lose several key players. They signed a veteran with a strong track record. The Eagles have $20 million in cap space, which means they could pay Marcus Williams what he’s worth. Williams fits well into the Eagles’ scheme, and they have an urgent need for safety in their secondary.
Williams chose Philadelphia as his top destination. Both McLeod and Harris are set to become free agents, and the Eagles will have to find replacements. Williams’ home jersey color was controversial, but many national writers and NFL insiders predicted that it would be green. ESPN suggested that it would be midnight-green. While the Philadelphia Eagles have not formally confirmed the news, it is still worth noting that many experts believe the team’s future safety will be in the hands of Williams.
True, the Eagles did not have to sign a free agent because of their contracts. Reddick could have been signed by the Eagles, or traded for Calvin Ridley. There are numerous reasons why players decide to sign with other teams. Signing elsewhere in free agency is a common occurrence. If you think you’re a fit for the Eagles, you should definitely check out the options.
The Eagles should be active players in the safety market. They should consider signing Williams if they don’t. While the Ravens are known for providing blue chip talent at Williams’ position, the Eagles would be wise to sign two safety candidates. There is speculation that the Eagles might sign Marcus Maye, who has ties with Dennard Wilson. Elliott is a young, hard-hitting safety who was drafted in the sixth round.
Jalen Hurts could be the team’s QB
Jalen Hurts could become the Eagles’ next quarterback if they are trying to get rid of Carson Wentz. The former Utah State quarterback has all the skills and experience necessary to be a top NFL quarterback. He is a popular fantasy quarterback. He currently plays for the Philadelphia Eagles. He has won five games and thrown more than 3,000 yards in his career.
The Philadelphia Eagles have three first-round picks this year and may consider trading for a quarterback to help them win this Super Bowl. Otherwise, the Eagles could replicate the Rams’ strategy of acquiring Matthew Stafford and re-sign Hurts as their starter. If they fail to find a good quarterback, they will have some difficult decisions.
While the Eagles have three first-round picks this year and are scheduled to make ten total picks in the draft, they won’t use all of them on a quarterback. Instead, the team will use their first-round picks to fill other positions such as running back, wide receiver, and offensive lineman. It’s unlikely they will make any major free-actor moves in this offseason, despite Hurts’ emergence.
The quarterback search will start in earnest, given the Bucs’ woes and uncertainty about whether or not Jalenhurts will play for them. Hurts’ Twitter bio doesn’t say “Philadelphia Eagles quarterback,” but it features the team prominently. While he’s still a member of the Eagles, he’s likely to start the season for them as their starting quarterback. You never know what tomorrow may bring.
Howie Roseman, Philadelphia Eagles General Manager, stated in January that the quarterback position will be a priority for the team in 2022. Hurts has shown great progress over the past season and has a great chance of being a starter. They have plenty of time to find another quarterback if they don’t like Hurts. If not, they can pursue other quarterbacks.
