Report: Watson won't attend OTAs, still wants to be traded
Watson is currently facing 22 lawsuits alleging sexual assault and inappropriate behavior. The Houston Police Department recently opened an investigation after a complainant filed a criminal report against Watson.
The 25-year-old requested a trade from the Texans prior to his legal issues and still wants out of Houston, Pelissero adds.
The New York Jets, Miami Dolphins, Carolina Panthers, Denver Broncos, San Francisco 49ers, New England Patriots, Chicago Bears, and Washington Football Team expressed interest in acquiring the three-time Pro Bowler before the lawsuits were filed.
Watson initially requested a trade after the Texans hired Nick Caserio as its general manager in January.
The former first-round pick, who's signed through 2025 after inking a four-year, $156-million extension in 2020, led the NFL with 4,823 yards and 33 touchdowns last season.
