Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson did not play in a game this season following an ongoing investigation into multiple sexual assault accusations, and it appears that his career in the NFL is still in question.

Texans general manager Nick Caserio talked about Watson’s future with the team during an appearance on Sports Radio 610 in Houston this morning. He was asked whether or not the team would be interested in keeping Watson depending on what coach came in to replace David Culley.

Caserio said “that more than likely would not be the case,” according to the Houston Chronicle.

There were rumors dating back to last season that the Miami Dolphins were among the most realistic suitors for Watson, particularly due to then-head coach Brian Flores reportedly being interested in Watson.

Flores is no longer with the Dolphins, which could ultimately make for a potential landing spot for Watson wherever Flores goes.

Brian Flores interviewed with the Texans on Friday, but it does not seem like the Texans are interested in keeping Watson, which could throw a wrench in Flores’s plan.

Most of the NFL head coaching vacancies are for teams with a shaky at-best starting quarterback, so it is not far-fetched to believe Watson could end up joining Flores at his next head coaching job.

More recent reports have stated Watson’s interest in joining Flores at his next head coaching destination as well.

Watson’s tenure with the Texans was already rocky with the Texans after requesting a trade last season, so it appears that the bridge with the Texans may be burned.

We will have to wait to see where the dominos fall with Flores going forward, but the Texans will likely jump at the best offer that they get to part ways with Watson, and that may just be with Flores’s new team wherever that should be.
