The Houston Texans are going in a downward spiral in the 2021 season.

They lost a lot of their momentum when Tyrod Taylor went down with an injury.

There have been recent rumors that the Texans will trade QB Deshaun Watson to the Miami Dolphins before the trade deadline.

It is reported that the Texans are seeking 5-6 premium assets in return for Watson.

According to CBS Sports reporter Jason La Canfora, the Texans could potentially be looking to move more than Watson.

Other Names Mentioned

According to La Canfora, several GM’s around the league believed that Laremy Tunsil would have already been traded if he had not been injured earlier this month.

He also mentions Tyrod Taylor as another name that the Texans could move in order to feature as many young players as possible.

Christian Kirksey, Phillip Lindsay, and Desmond King are other names that La Canfora mentions could be moved.

Building For The Future

It’s apparent that GM Nick Caserio wants to collect as many draft assets for the future as possible and rebuild the organization.

Caserio has the tough task of making up for a history of Bill O’Brien’s bad decisions.

Not getting at least a first-rounder for DeAndre Hopkins has to be the worst on the list.

Jadeveon Clowney had 29 sacks in his first 5 years in Houston.

While he never quite lived up to expectations, trading him to Seattle for only a 3rd round pick was unacceptable.

Other transaction blunders include giving up a 3d round pick for Duke Johnson and a second-round pick for Brandin Cooks.

The Texans also paid a premium to Miami for left tackle Jeremy Tunsil by waiting too long to fill the position.

They traded 2 first-round picks and a second-round pick for his services.

O’Brien was also known for his questionable playcalling and blown leads.
