It was recently revealed that the Houston Texans are expected to part ways with Quarterback Deshaun Watson sometime during the offseason. With this being said, which teams are potential landing spots for DW4?

1. Miami Dolphins

The Miami Dolphins‘ faithful has mixed emotions on the idea of bringing in Watson. Tua Tagovailoa is a good quarterback for the Dolphins, so the need for Watson is not necessary, but by adding the Clemson alum, the Dolphins offense would most likely become a major threat.

Head Coach Brian Flores has stated previously stated that “Tua is our quarterback”, so it seems as if the Dolphins are not interested in Watson. However, the rumors of a possible trade keep emerging.

Moreover, the Dolphins were a candidate for a midseason trade and were expected to acquire Watson until the Texans raised the price for the QB.

Deshaun Watson and his legal team have almost settled his current legal status, which has been the main reason why he has not been moved yet.

2. Carolina Panthers

The Panthers are another likely spot for Watson, considering the QB turmoil in Carolina. The Panthers currently have Cam Newton and Sam Darnold at the QB spot, but adding Watson would definitely help. This season, Cam has struggled to return to his 2015 self. Meanwhile, Darnold, although being away from the Jets, still has not quite found his footing.

All in all, Watson would be a perfect fit for the Panthers, whose offense is seemingly one QB away from returning to the postseason.

3. Pittsburgh Steelers

Last but not least, the Steelers seem like a great fit for the Georgia native considering that this may be the final season for Ben Roethlisberger. I believe that the entire offense in the ‘burgh will change with the arrival of Watson, as it will give the Steelers a mobile quarterback to match up with the talent of the AFC North.

Final Thoughts

Watson will be traded this offseason, and with how uncertain the NFL is, these teams were my picks for a landing spot for DeShaun. Agree with my picks? Disagree? Feel free to let me know your thoughts in the forums or on Twitter @KeganCrawford
