Watson has met with all of his potential suitors and will have to waive his no-trade clause in order for a deal to be commenced. All signs point toward him wanting to play in New Orleans, although there was some speculation that his first choice was to return to his home state and play for the Atlanta Falcons.
The Houston Texans are reportedly asking for three first-round picks in exchange for Watson, which is a fair asking price for a potential MVP quarterback.
