According to Pro Football Network's Aaron Wilson, the Houston Texans are signing former Bills edge rusher, Jerry Hughes.

Hughes is 33 years old and recorded 2 sacks and 7 QB hits in 2021 while playing in all 17 games. The Texans hired former Bills assistant defensive line coach, Jacques Cesaire, as their defensive line coach this offseason. It appears Nick Caserio is bringing in some players Cesaire was familiar with in Buffalo.

The Texans opted to address the secondary with their premium draft picks, so GM Nick Caserio is adding talent to the defensive line with free agents like Hughes. Just last week, the Texans agreed to terms with former Bills defensive lineman Mario Addison (7 sacks last season) to a 2-year contract and Houston also signed former Seahawks DE Rasheen Green (6.5 sacks last season) to a 1-year deal after the NFL Draft.

The Texans appear to be putting together a veteran rotation of pass rushers to go along with Jonathan Greenard, who is going into his third season in the league.

Deshaun Watson will make his Cleveland Browns debut this Sunday against his former team at NRG Stadium. Watson has completed his suspension from the NFL for alleged sexual misconduct with dozens of massage therapists, and this Sunday will be the first game he has played in 700 days.

The Browns sit at 4-7 hoping Watson will be the spark the team needs to stack some wins and get into the Wild Card race. The Texans are still searching for their second win of the season, and many believe the team will be hiring another head coach come January.

With this in mind, who has the worst reputation? The Texans or Deshaun Watson?

It seems like an easy answer with Watson's legal troubles, but upon further review, the answer has to be the Texans. The Texans have hired two consecutive coaches that no other NFL team even interviewed. It seems like no quality candidates have any interest in coaching the Texans. Watson, however, had teams lining up for his services when the Texans decided to trade him.

Be sure to check out the video above as we dive into this topic and make a convincing case, as crazy as it sounds, that Watson is perceived to have a better reputation.
