According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Houston Texans have traded a 6th and 7th round draft pick to the Patriots for their 5th round pick.

The New England Patriots had two 5th round picks (No.158 and No.170) and the Texans had three 6th-rounders (No.183, No. 205, and No. 207).

Field Yates is reporting that the Texans will receive pick 170, and the Pats will receive picks 183 and 245.

This trade helps the Texans, as they did not have a pick in the 5th round before the trade. The Texans now have a pick in every round except the 7th, and have multiple picks in the 1st, 3rd, 4th, and 6th rounds.

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.
