The top topic of the NFL offseason has been where Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson will end up playing in 2022.

It was assumed that it was between the Atlanta Falcons and the New Orleans Saints after Watson personally rejected all but those two teams.

It seems that he has changed his mind as reports have come out on Friday that Watson wants to play for the Cleveland Browns, and will waive his no-trade clause to be dealt there.

Watson had previously met with the team and expressed some interest to go there before ultimately ruling them out on Tuesday and changing his mind on Friday.

These shocking reports have gotten the NFL world talking, with many confused by this chain of events this week.

These reports have quickly been answered by the Browns, as it now appears that the team will in fact trade for Deshaun Watson in return for three first-round picks as well as a third-round pick and a fifth-round pick for the former three-time Pro-Bowler.

This also means that the team will be accommodating Baker Mayfield’s trade request, despite saying previously that they would not.

The full details of the trade has the NFL world speculating on if it is ultimately worth in for the Browns considering all of the picks that they will be giving up.

Though many feel that it might be a bit of an overpay, others recognize the talent that Watson has shown on the field and believe that it could certainly lead to some success for the Browns moving forward.

This news is also massive because it was really the domino piece for the rest of the league to now make their quarterback decisions, including the Saints and Falcons now that they are out of the Watson sweepstakes.

Whether Watson can stay on the field will ultimately decide whether or not this is a good trade for the Browns going forward. At his best he is an elite quarterback that has shown before he can lead his team to the playoffs.

At his worst, he is a complete public relations nightmare with still pending civil lawsuits against him, and a waste of some valuable picks for the Browns.
