Examining J.J. Watt’s trade value and his future with the Texans

The Texans continue to add big contacts to the payroll, the latest being the massive extension Bill O'Brien gave to left tackle Laremy Tunsil. Houston just exercised the 5th year option on Deshaun Watson's contract, but many believe a long-term extension is right around the corner, which could make it very tough to continue to pay J.J. Watt.

Number 99 has been very productive when he's on the field, but the Texans can't continue to pay his massive salary if he can't stay healthy. Watt has two years left on his contract and you have to wonder if the Texans would consider trading him if they got a decent offer.

Would a Super Bowl contender be interested in adding Watt for championship run? And if so, how much value could Watt bring back to Texans if he's traded? Check out the video to learn more.

One of the surprising elements to come out of Astros Fan Fest over the weekend was Jeff Bagwell's role speaking with the media about the state of the team. The Astros have three assistant general managers that were asked to speak, all declined, leaving Bagwell to answer all the questions.

Plus, when Jose Abreu spoke at Fan Fest about signing with the club, he thanked Jim Crane, and wait for it, Jeff Bagwell.

The Astros are expected to hire a GM, and we've been seeing reports about interviews taking place. But will Bagwell remain as the mouthpiece of the organization, acting as a buffer between the new GM and owner Jim Crane?

Check out the video above as the guys from The Wheelhouse lay it all out!
