Deshaun Watson took the next step and reportedly asked for a trade from the Houston Texans.
The Texans new hire David Culley, has not and will not alter Watson's thinking, sources told ESPN.
Watson set career-highs this past season in passing yards, touchdowns and completion percentage. He also threw a career-low seven interceptions. His 33 touchdowns and 4,823 passing yards were also single-season franchise records.
Watson is currently the NFL's all-time leader in completion percentage behind behind Drew Brees. In 2020, he became just the 11th player in NFL history to complete at least 70% of his passes in a single season.
