The NFL Network's Tom Pelissero is reporting that the district attorney investigating Deshaun Watson will present her case to the grand jury on Friday. Watson's attorney, Rusty Hardin, had previously been pointing to April 1 as a date in which we would know if Watson would be charged criminally. But it looks like Watson and the Houston Texans will get an answer sooner than anticipated. So soon in fact that Hardin told The New York Timesthat he hopes a decision will be made that day.

If the grand jury decides not to move forward with criminal charges against Watson, the process of trading him will get substantially easier. Of course that's a big if, but either way, the Texans and Watson should get more clarity about his future over the next few days. As far as Watson pleading the fifth is his civil deposition, that won't impact whether the grand jury decides to move forward with criminal charges.

And the timing could actually benefit the Texans, with Aaron Rodgers deciding to stay in Green Bay, and the Seahawks getting a huge haul for QB Russell Wilson on Tuesday. Watson is the last elite QB on the market. The Panthers, Commanders, and Eagles are all rumored to have interest.
