The Deshaun Watson trade rumors have been all over this place. This from Stephen A Smith may be the most outlandish.
Smith feels a trade for Prescott would give the Texans a comparable option under center. While Smith pleaded his case, First Take threw up a graphic comparing the two young quarterbacks:
Total QBR – Prescott: 69.6, Watson: 69.7
Pro Bowl selections – Prescott: 2, Watson: 3
Age – Prescott: 27, Watson: 25
Playoff wins – Prescott: 1, Watson: 1
“You want to make sure that you get equitable compensation or something close to it for the services of Deshaun Watson, who’s determined not to be there,” Smith said. “Regardless of how much you’re flexing, you can’t make the brother want to be there any longer. If he don’t like the organization, if he doesn’t respect the organization — but you bring him back and insist on him playing for the organization, you are begging for trouble.”
This probably would not happen...but would be a huge shift in the QB race.
