Watson is still with the Texans for now, but there is no sign that their relationship has improved. The Jets and Dolphins have long been the favorites to acquire Watson’s services — should they become available — but the Broncos have emerged as a dark horse candidate. Drew Lock has not lived up to expectations in his first two years with the squad, and they are rumored to be interested. They don’t have quite as much draft capital as the Jets or Dolphins, but they do have the No. 9 pick in 2021.
The betting market believes there is a legit chance that Watson will suit up with Denver next season. The Texans remain the favorites at +200 on FanDuel Sportsbook Colorado, but the Broncos have moved just behind them at +300. The Dolphins are tied with the Broncos at +300, while the Jets have dropped all the way to +900. The 49ers (+350) and Panthers (+700) also remain firmly in the mix.
The speculation is fun, but it’s important to remember two things. First, the Texans are going to do everything possible to hold on to their franchise quarterback. Second, Watson has a full no-trade clause, so he has a lot of power in where he ultimately lands. Expect more twists and turns before this situation comes to a resolution.
