It is hard to see a world where he is traded before the season because of the lack of information the NFL has put out.
The #Texans are now willing to listen — and have been for some time — to trade offers for star QB Deshaun Watson, multiple sources tell me and @RapSheet. But the price is high for a player of his caliber, and should be. It’d likely take at least three first-round picks and more.

Regardless of the reports that the Texans are open and willing to trade Watson, it is hard to see a trade unfolding before the season unless the league decides on his availability this season.
Many teams do remain interested in trading for the three-time Pro Bowl quarterback. The two teams that have been publically rumored to trading for him are the Miami Dolphins and the Philadelphia Eagles.
The Miami Dolphins have always been at the top of Watson’s list of teams if and when a trade were to happen. Being that Miami is still looking for a win-now quarterback rather than wait for Tua Tagovailoa to evolve, they could pull the trigger and offer Houston their young quarterback.
On the other hand, an elite quarterback of Watson’s level would solve many of the Philadelphia Eagles’ problems, and it is hard seeing them not make a strong push for his services.
Tying that into Watson’s odds to start a game for the Houston Texans, bettors can make a nice profit here not only betting on either the Miami Dolphins or Philadelphia Eagles to secure him for Week 1 but also on him not playing a game for the Texans.
