Report: Panthers Will Make “Strong Push” for DeShaun Watson
January 28Matt LaMarcaSportsGrid
As they should. Watson is one of the best young quarterbacks in the league, and he’s coming off an outstanding season. He led the league with 4,823 passing yards, completed 70.2% of his passes, and tossed 33 touchdowns compared to just seven interceptions. Add it all up, and his 112.4 Quarterback Rating trailed only Aaron Rodgers’ mark of 121.5, and Rodgers is likely taking home the MVP award. The Panthers got a decent season out of Teddy Bridgewater, but Watson would represent a massive upgrade.
That said, it remains to be seen if Watson wants to go to Carolina. He has a full no-trade clause, so he’s ultimately going to dictate where he plays football next season. The Jets and Dolphins are rumored to be his preferred destinations, and both teams have plenty of assets to form an appealing trade offer.
