This isn't just hyperbole for the sake of hyperbole. This isn't clickbait for the sake of the blog. I am being very serious right now in saying that if I were Deshaun Watson, I'd think about lawyering up here. Because what they are doing to this man in Houston is downright criminal.
One might think that an organization would look to do everything possible to protect their franchise quarterback coming off of an ACL tear but what happened in the 2018 season? Deshaun Watson was the most sacked quarterback in all of football. Then we get to the 2019 season. The Houston Texans trade for Laremy Tunsil. Seemed like a great idea to bolster up that offensive line but what happened in the 2019 season? Deshaun Watson was again the most sacked quarterback in all of football. A torn ACL in 2017, most sacked quarterback in 2018 and 2019. Federal crime!!!
So to go out and get rid of his best weapon and one of the most un-guardable players in the league for a 2nd round pick and a running back who will turn 29 during the season and has only played 1 full season in the past 3? That's some criminal behavior. Even more criminal when you remember the fact that the Texans don't have a pick in the first round of the draft this year to replace Hopkins.
As a fellow ACL Tear Survivor, my heart breaks for Deshaun Watson. This is an injustice that cannot go by unpunished. Deshaun deserves better and everybody knows it. I'm officially cursing the Houston Texans until further notice.
