It looks like the Deshaun Watson saga will play out for at least another day. After meeting with the New Orleans Saints and Carolina Panthers on Monday, it was learned in the middle of the night that the Cleveland Browns are still involved in the manhunt.
Despite multiple reports on Monday that nearly eliminated the Browns from the Watson hunt, mostly due to the weather, Cleveland continues to persist. With the opportunity to acquire what many believe to be one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL, Andrew Berry and company hope they have a chance to convince Watson they are the best for him.
This is despite 22 women’s claims of lewd behavior during professional massage appointments.
Two reports came out during the 1 a.m. hour of Tuesday morning that the Browns would meet with the Houston Texans quarterback on Tuesday. First but Aaron Wilson:
Wilson notes that Cleveland will travel to Houston for the meeting, as did both the Saints and Panthers. ESPN’s Kimberley A. Martin, shortly after Wilson, also reported on the meeting:
While the Browns may not be Watson’s first choice, the Texans also need to complete a trade that’s also acceptable to them. It’s unknown what Houston will demand in exchange for the quarterback, but some reports have pointed to three first-round picks, a second-round pick and players. In our Mock Offseason 2.0, we created a version that included a Watson swap.
While on Monday we thought the drama or Watson’s dream was over, Tuesday brings us the more official news that the team is officially interested in the Texans’ quarterback.
