Deshaun Watson is going to have to play a little hardball if he wants to get the hell out of Houston. Word from the Texans brass is they will not be trading their star QB. That can only mean Watson will have to take his request to be traded to the next level. During today’s “Get Up,” Jeremy Fowler reported that Watson is willing to hold out all the way into the 2021 regular season if need be.
“I’m told there’s a very real possibility that he could not show up for the preseason and not show up for the regular season if he’s not traded,” Fowler said. “He could incur $3 million-plus in fines during that process, but he does not care. I’m told the relationship is simply too far gone right now.”

Watson met Houston head coach David Culley last week, and told him to his face he has zero interest in playing for the Texans.
If that message wasn’t strong enough, maybe this will make the Texans think twice about this stalemate.
Only a matter of time before they’re going to blink first.
