That's an excellent point. But the timing of the allegations and all the circumstances involved is what makes this whole situation shady. The Texans could've gotten a King's ransom for Deshaun and chose not to entertain any offers. The Texans know they have a franchise QB which is why they signed him and included the no trade clause. They don't want him to go anywhere. Now however it seems like the Texans don't want him to play ANYWHERE imo. What was so hard about the FO including him in the process of signing a Head Coach? Clearly if the Texans FO and ownership had real intentions on honoring that it's a win for the franchise. Instead they have managed to lose 2 great players over some BS. Pride is a mofo.
