Re: Around the NFL: NFL Offseason

Watson's team has already said hes done in HOU... It's over for them, in today's NFL, The player (especially QB) Has all the leverage. They are only saying No right now because the draft is still far out, once we get to draft week he'll be traded

Yeah, people who think Watson will just settle back down and play are missing the power shift that has gone on with star players, not just qb's. The fines and leverage a team has works well for vet minimum players, but those pulling in multimillion dollar deals know that their talent and value outweigh the penalties they might receive, up to and including sitting out a year. Most teams nowadays understand that.

Watson sitting out for any amount of time is very different than TW, LeVeon Bell, or any other cases that we've seen in the past couple of seasons.

@billbarnwell
The Texans aren't planning on having fans in 2021. Nothing to do with the pandemic, just their new philosophy

Watt plays DE, not DT but I like your thinking.

He won't be getting #99 though.

I guarantee he'll go to Pittsburgh and maybe even at a discount.

Packers wouldn't surprise me. He's a God around here already, but put him on the Packers and he'll be a forever God.

I don't get why people think this way. Watson sitting out is just the next in the evolution/escalation of players standing up individually to declare a team incompetent or incompatible. As players become minor millionaires quicker, the desire to put their bodies on the line for teams that they see (right or wrongly) as not putting the same type of fight for the prize of winning we are going to see more cases of players cancelling their contract while they still have time to win it all.

Don't care what Watson does, the cost will be too high so do not want him.

Sounds like he's a selfish, cry-baby bitch.

Maybe not run around every play like a chicken and with your head cutoff.

In hindsight, I'm glad they didn't hand the ball off to Beast-Mode.
my message to him would be give back some $ so we can sign a o-linemen. Then I bet Russ would be straight crickets.

They’re all that way. Dak was like....you need to sign my boy Zeke...they did. Now he wants his and there’s no money left and he’s wondering why. Think some of these guys need to pay more attention in the Econ and Business classes they take.

No signs of trauma but police visited him at his hotel after concerns from the family? Please not another NFL player suicide.

No idea what happened but RIP. Seems he was a well-liked player by the community and team. My condolences to his family and friends.
