Former Clemson football QB Deshaun Watson could be much better off in an organization that appreciates his skill set outside of the Houston Texans.

The Clemson football program has seen many talented individuals come through under Dabo Swinney‘s leadership over the course of the last decade.

Perhaps, none have been better than QB Deshaun Watson.

Deshaun Watson, the current quarterback for the Houston Texans, led Clemson football to three-straight wins over in-state rival South Carolina, two National Championship appearances and one National Title- the program’s first in more than 30 years.

After leaving the Clemson football program as the GOAT, Watson was drafted in the first-round by the Houston Texans. The Texans traded up to make the selection happen and it seemed like the organization was poised to make a run at Super Bowl contention in the next few seasons.

But that hasn’t happened yet, and it has nothing to do with Deshaun Watson.

Watson has continuously improved during his time in Houston and has been the face of the franchise for the Texans.

Unfortunately, though, Houston can’t seem to sell out to him. The Texans elected to trade away Watson’s favorite receiving target DeAndre ‘Nuk’ Hopkins- also a former Clemson football player- for basically nothing.

The Texans haven’t been able to build an offensive line around Watson either, leaving him to fend for himself on more occasions than not.

The craziness of the Bill O’Brien era has left Houston seemingly in shambles and Watson needs to get out of there. Though Deshaun Watson will likely remain a team player and stay silent on the issue, here are three NFL teams who should try to trade for the Clemson football product.
