After meeting with the Saints, Panthers, Falcons, and Browns, Deshaun Watson has decided to waive his no-trade clause and be traded to the Cleveland Browns, according to Adam Schefter. Watson will get a new deal from the Browns that will give him a $12 million per year raise, making him the highest paid QB in the NFL. It's a 5-year/$230 million deal.

The Texans will receive 3 first round picks, a third round pick (2023), and fourth (2024) for a fifth round pick swap, per Ian Rapoport. The Texans now have the 3rd overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft and the 13th overall pick.
