San Francisco 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman has made it perfectly clear he thinks Deshaun Watson should get the heck out of Houston.
One of the biggest offseason questions left to be answered in the NFL is whether or not Deshaun Watson will suit up for the Houston Texans in 2021. The superstar quarterback has grown tired of the front office’s act, which reached a new level with the hiring of Nick Caserio as general manager.
Reports have swirled stating Watson could end up asking to be traded. If you ask San Francisco 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman, Watson needs to do everything possible to get himself out of a Texans uniform. Taking things a step further, Sherman even said that Watson should push for a move to the New York Jets.
Richard Sherman didn’t hold back with his advice for Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson
While on The Chis Collinsworth Podcast, Sherman indeed sent a strong message to Watson, letting him know that a move to East Rutherford, N.J. could prove to be a career-changing one.
“If I was Deshaun, I would get out of there as quickly as possible. I’d head to New York,” Sherman said. “The Jets. It would be the most beautiful (situation). A decent offensive line. They’d have to find threats. They’d have to find some offensive weapons, but I think there would be a lot more people excited to be there.”
There’s been rumors about a Watson to New York trade, but obviously, things haven’t reached that level just yet. Caserio is hoping he can try and patch things up with Watson. His first step in doing so will be to hire a great head coach to lead the team. At the same time, Caserio must make sure his quarterback is part of the process.
A big reason why he’s so upset in the first place is because team owner Cal McNair said Watson would have a voice in the GM and head coach hires, but that wasn’t the case with Caserio coming on board. Only time will tell if Watson and Houston can get back on the same page, but if you ask Sherman, that ship has sailed and the quarterback should leave town as soon as possible.
