Houston and Miami could have Deshaun Watson deal (update - no deal prior to trade deadline)

Wouldn't it be an absolute PR nightmare to trade for a guy with all of these allegations out there?

 

How would the social conscious NFL feel about a team fielding a QB that has these allegations against him?

 

It makes no sense to me that a team will trade for him until, or if, his legal issues are settled.

According to Schefter where?  Don't see it on the real Adam Schefter account. 

His last on the topic was to re-tweet Marcel LJ quote of Flores "Tua is our QB"

 

 

 

The dreaded “vote of confidence.” I think that seals the deal. 😛

Hahahahahahaha.  Hilarious.  The owner is working against his QB and his HC.  What a gong show.

Yea I read it yesterday. The only way it keeps you off the field is the exempt list. Which takes me back to my point.... he isn't on it and he should be. ttkef

Until the legal issues are settled in court, the NFL will not begin their investigation into Watson nor will they place him on the commissioners exempt list.

I dont think that is true

Investigations – Whenever the league office becomes aware of a possible violation of the Personal Conduct Policy, it will undertake an investigation, the timing and scope of which will be based upon the particular circumstances of the matter.

And they can put him on it at anytime.  There is nothing in there that states they can't just because they havent

I really hope the fish trade for him. Flores is already on the verge of losing the team and this would admit they forfeit this season and next. The PR nightmare would be a whole other thing to deal with for the locker room and organization.

 

not only that, but to forfeit all of those picks too? That franchise would be set back another half decade or so. They already lost their first round pick to the eagles this year, imagine them not having firsts for the next couple years, no QB for the next couple years, and a brand new front office and coaching staff.

 

Hell it’s like they’d become the Texans! Bill Obrien must be working in that organization somewhere 

I also wanted to add that I was right, Flores is a terrible manager. Some of y’all laughed at me liked idiots so I wanted to say I told you so.

 

that man has been nothing but toxic for that organization and has set them back for years.

No not expressly but by law they have to apply their own discipline policy in a rational way. So if they haven't yet and now want to they need a better explanation than "we we didn't think we needed to before."

In which case if traded he will play.

Agreed and the moment he leaves the Texans he will be put on it.

 

 

As I have been trying to explain though the league are potentially in difficult territory doing that if nothing has changed in his legal case. The league doesn't have cart blanche to do what it wants discipline wise. It has to apply its own policy fairly and rationally. Either what is known is bad enough that he goes on the list or it isn't. Once you start throwing factors like "well was he likely to play or not" in then you are getting subjective and rationality becomes trickier.

In South Florida this behavior is normal, just ask Robert Kraft.
