The rumors and shots of disgruntled Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson aren’t going to end until there’s a resolution.
Watson is not happy with the Texans after the organization failed to consult with him before hiring Nick Caserio as the new chief executive. Watson – who signed a four-year extension with Houston ahead of the 2019 season – has reportedly requested a trade.
The San Francisco 49ers are one of the teams seen as a potential landing point for Watson, but it would cost the franchise a ton of capital.
Former NFL offensive lineman and current analyst Ross Tucker has joined The Game’s 95.7 Steiny, Guru and Dibs for an interview and said the Niners are expected to offer defensive lineman Nick Bosa in a package for the 25-year-old quarterback.
“If you can get Deshaun Watson, I think Bosa is still touchable. I’m sure they don’t want to, and I’m sure they even prefer to give up picks, but as great as Nick is, you have a chance to get a top five quarterback in the NFL. , you have to do it.
49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel responded to Tucker’s comments on his Instagram story:
Bosa injured his knee in Week 2 in the first quarter of Week 2’s win over the New York Jets. The Faithfuls felt a hollow in their stomachs when it was learned that the second-year defensive lineman had torn his ACL and missed the rest of the season.
The 23-year-old was named 2019 NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year after finishing with 47 tackles, 9 sacks and 25 hits. Pro Football Focus gave him an 86.7 rating for his rookie season, the fourth highest among rookie defenders since 2006.
Bosa’s absence was evident this season. Defensive coordinator Robert Saleh staged a lot more blitz with Bosa withdrawn, and the defensive line failed to muster much pressure in the four-man run.
Fans also love Bosa. The reaction to him standing up after fear of injury in the 2019 playoff win over the Minnesota Vikings speaks volumes.
Tucker adds that if he was general manager John Lynch, he would do whatever he can to not include Bosa in a commercial package for Watson, but ultimately, if that’s the right thing, he would pull the trigger. .
Would you be ready to part ways with Bosa to land Watson?
