I'd love to have a guy with his talent, but I personally believe he's guilty as sin of what he's accused of, and I'm not as confident as others that he'll be able to simply pay this away. And even if he gets away with this, I'm not convinced he wouldn't get in trouble with something else down the road.
    I still don't think Watson plays in the NFL again.

    Here's a draft haul and if he faces charges we get it back minus players which we get compensated for with additional draft picks?

    I always liked to hear about the old-timers. Never missed a chance to do so. You can't help but compare yourself against the old-timers. Can't help but wonder how they'd have operated these times - Sheriff Bell.

    A roll-the-dice GM could offer, say, a 2022 first and a 2022 third for Watson with the condition that, if he's suspended, the team keeps their first and only gives Houston a third, but if he's not suspended, the third converts to a first in 2023.

    It's a huge risk but that team is only out a third if Watson is suspended. If he's not, you've now added a top-tier QB for merely a pair of firsts, well below the asking price talked about before the controversy began. This would have to be done by a GM that feels *very* secure about their job but I could see it if it checked all the boxes (including Watson's approval).

    Counterpoint: Houston would only agree to give him away for so little if they knew he was about to have the hammer come down on him. I'd be running for the hills if Houston started trying to offload him for nothing.

    Middlepoint?:
    Its likely that Houston does not know anymore than anyone else at this point.

    Counterpoint:
    It is likely that houston might be the last to know about what is going on with how little watson wants to talk to them. It is possible we (or anyone connected to watson) may find out sooner. Just a thought.

    I'd imagine the owners/higher ups might have connections/pull in the DA or police office. It might be true they'll have no clue, but if they are suddenly willing to give him away for nothing, that would tell me they were tipped to something.

    Clearly, if the Texans knew which way this was going down, they wouldn't agree to the trade unless they thought Watson was getting put away. That's why you'd have to strike before a decision was known. Perhaps the Texans are sick of the uncertainty and the bad pub and just want to get it over with. Perhaps a a new team is willing to take the gamble thinking a third-rounder for Watson is like pennies on the dollar even if he has to sit out a year or more. Would you give up a third for a QB of Watson's talents even if you had to wait until 2023 to play him? Mike Tyson didn't forget how to box just by serving a prison sentence.

    The Texans aren’t really concerned with it to that extent, they wasn’t trading him before it came out and they already knew of Watson behavior.
