ANSWERING THE CALL?

ESPN's Dan Graziano is reporting that he's hearing from his sources that Deshaun Watson met with Texans HC David Culley last Friday.

Unfortunately for Texans fans, Watson appears dug in telling Culley that nothing has changed, and he won't be playing for the Texans again. On one hand, it's nice to hear that Watson has at least opened the line of communication with the team's new coach, but it hasn't changed anything for Watson. SI's Albert Breer early in the week discussed GM Nick Caserio's decision to hire Culley, believing that the team needed a "unifier" in the head coach position. With the idea being, the way Belichick runs a team doesn't have much success these days outside of New England.

Which makes sense if you think about it. Players are willing to put up with a lot more if the team is consistently winning football games. And the Texans aren't likely to win a lot of games this year whether Watson stays or not. The defense needs a complete rebuild and that won't get fixed in one offseason. Regardless, Watson and the Texans don't seem any closer to mending fences, or agreeing that it's time to part ways with the Texans reportedly refusing to listen to trade offers for their quarterback.
