Watson Ryan Trade Proposal

This is ludicrous, but I thought I would share. Enjoy! 

 

This Falcons-Texans Matt Ryan-Deshaun Watson Trade Could Confirm Draft Rumors and Blow up the NFL

The latest draft rumblings paired with the enigmatic mind of Houston Texans head coach/GM/emperor Bill O'Brien could set the stage for a league-changing trade.

The Atlanta Falcons, currently using Matt Schaub to back up Matt Ryan, are rumored to be considering trading up to select a QB in the 2020 draft. If they are in the market for a quarterback, what harm can come from asking the Texans about Deshaun Watson? O'Brien will pick up the phone.

O'Brien has traded Jadeveon Clowney and DeAndre Hopkins in back-to-back offseasons and failed to recoup a first-round pick, so he's the only GM with a warped enough brain to consider sending Watson back home to Atlanta.

Ryan was still extremely productive last year (4,400 yards, 26 touchdowns), but he will be 35 once the 2020 season starts. Furthermore his contract carries almost $120 million in cap hits from 2021-2023. This could make him a less valuable asset for Houston than his play would indicate.

O'Brien should be asking for two first-round picks in addition to Ryan in exchange for a player with Watson's rare athletic ability and leadership, but Thomas Dimitroff is likely going to be able to talk O'Brien into only taking a first and third-round pick, as Watson is in the last year of his rookie contract and Atlanta would need to pony up with a new deal.

The only GM with the cojones to even think of pulling this move off is O'Brien, so nothing can be totally taken off the table. If Watson's continued frustration with the organization leads to him refusing to sign a new deal, his hometown team could snap him up while robbing Houston of a franchise quarterback.

And QB aint the problem. Like not even a little

Not the long term solution either. To be honest, Watson would at least give me something to watch. I don’t see a SB anywhere in the immediate future, so at least I’d enjoy watching the games instead of not caring whether I see it or not.

Sorry your so miserable little buddy. But it’s a fact of life that there’s many other NFL teams you can watch and for a team that sucks so bad to the point you don’t really care to watch, what in the world are you doing wasting your time on a message board of that team?

I don’t get how people with common sense make comments like these.

SMH. 

 

Also, KOG, tell us how you really feel, bro. As a long-standing board member and even longer falcon fan, it is shocking to me how you are coming across regarding #2. The man is the best QB we have ever had, and won an MVP. And yes, he more than did his part to get us that SB. Those are facts.

Yes, Watson is great. But he will cost more than Ryan.... In exactly one year. The smart move, if you even consider this viable is to wait for Watson to force the franchise tag or hit Free Agency. No way he is playing for O'Brien long-term.
