Must read


Finally, a bipartisan issue that Houstonians can agree on.

The Texans and star quarterback Deshaun Watson are heading for a complicated divorce, if recent rumors and speculation materialize. While a trade can’t be completed until the league’s new year in March, many believe a separation is more likely than not.

Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner is one of many doing his best to keep Watson in the Texans uniform. Turner expressed his support for Watson and the “love” he has for Houston this weekend.

“I appreciate @deshaunwatson as a player, but I respect him even more as a person. I know he loves this city because I saw how much he gave of himself and his treasure to people. in this city. I am honored to be his. Mayor. I hope that doesn’t change anytime soon.

Watson has yet to request a trade from the Texans, but is expected to do so in the coming months, even as Houston continues the process of finding a head coach. The team have reportedly targeted Eric Bieniemy or Leslie Frazier as their next HC, and ESPN’s Adam Schefter and Chris Mortensen, whoever they hire will make no difference, as Watson will.

Recently retired quarterback Josh McCown was also interviewed for the role.

Houston’s dysfunction has been at the forefront of Watson’s desire to get out, with unrest among him, owner Cal McNair and front office executive Jack Easterby, and Houston rejecting Watson’s suggestions for head coach talks. all playing in the drama.

It’s impressive that Watson has so much love in H-Town, but it certainly says something that it seems a mayor of a town does more to keep the quarterback than the owners of the team.
