The NFL trade deadline is rapidly approaching, and the Houston Texans are going to have to decide whether they will move forward with Deshaun Watson on the roster or trade the the former All-Pro quarterback.
With the November 2 trade deadline a few weeks away, Texans owner Cal McNair is commenting on the situation.
“We’ll just wait and see,” McNair said, via Aaron Wilson of SportsTalk 790. “It’s a day-to-day thing. [General manager] Nick [Caserio] is in charge of that. We’ll see how that works out.”
The Texans previously said they did not have any plans to trade Watson, but they have grown to be more open to the idea in recent weeks. That still appears to be the case if the team feels they can get value in return for the star signal-caller — whose future in the league is up in the air with his pending legal issues.

Watson is facing 22 civil lawsuits alleging sexual misconduct. The 25-year-old All-Pro signal-caller, however, has adamantly denied the allegations against him.
