Watson is reportedly preparing to play during the 2021 season despite
the NFL’s ongoing investigation into 22 civil lawsuits filed against
him by women alleging sexual assault or misconduct.
ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler reported the
update Thursday on SportsCenter and noted Watson, who requested a
trade before the allegations became public, is “intrigued” by the
Denver Broncos if he’s ultimately dealt by the Texans:
“I spoke with a source close to
Watson who said he’s been working out rigorously since early June and
he has a plan. And he plans to play somehow, somewhere and
eventually. So, it’s not clear-cut right now because his cases are
not resolved. The league is still investigating. Now, I spoke to
somebody in Houston who said they believe that he largely won’t be
expected in training camp because that’s a precedent he set early in
the offseason, that he wasn’t going to show up, but there is no
clarity on that yet. The league can always place him on the
Commissioner’s Exempt List as they get closer to camp, which would
keep him away.
“Now, we know the Eagles are well-positioned. They have a lot of draft capital in the future, as our
Adam Schefter pointed out. Also, don’t sleep on Denver here because I
have been told that Watson has long been intrigued by the Broncos. They have good options on offense, and Denver is believed to be at
least one of the teams that’s from afar monitoring the quarterback
landscape around the league, Watson included.”
