Deshan Watson has officially requested a trade from the Houston Texans. While there were many obvious rumors pointing to this for weeks, various NFL insiders have confirmed that Watson has asked for a trade from the Texans. News of this comes one day after the Texans decided that they were going to hire David Culley as their head coach. Apparently that was not enough to sway Watson's decision as he looks to leave the team that drafted him.
Reports of growing tension between Watson and the team have been growing ever since the team traded All-Pro WR DeAndre Hopkins last offseason. Watson added more fuel to the fire when he tweeted "Some things never change" after the team hired Nick Caserio as their new GM. Of course, this timing of the tweet and the news made everyone think that they were related. How could you not think that?
