    With the salary cap situation this year and the fact that the Texans aren’t even answering the phone I just don’t agree with that stance.

    As soon as the Texans say they are listening that will be when his value is the highest. Too many teams can’t obtain him because of the salary cap situation right now.

    He has a very team friendly contract, and many tams have the cap space to get him. Jags Jets Pats all have $60M+ and a need at QB

    NY seems like the team most capable, they hold the #2 overall pick that would allow Houston to replace their QB easily.

    By not taking calls, the Texans are simply forcing teams to offer more to get their attention. There are many teams that absolutely have the room to afford him. Others will make room if need be. None of us know for sure what these loons will do, but the smart money is trade haul and minimize damage and disharmony.

    A players value is always worth a shed load more if you decline availibility as you'll have less teams going for it offering more.

    Teams who shop around to sell off a player will get less in return.

    Wouldn't be surprised if Texans start taking the calls at the end of March.

    Watson has a no trade clause. Jags and Pats aren’t on his approved list as far as I know.

    He has a no trade clause though so he has limited who can actually go after him.

    That’s not how a no trade clause works though. Watson would have to approve any deal the Texans pull the trigger on.

    I think Watson is at the point where he will be pretty open- minded about a new club. He really can’t stand the Texans’ front office and ownership apparently.
