Mike Florio lays out the only way the Texans would trade Deshaun Watson

Monday on NBC Sports, Mike Florio discusses the latest reports about the Texans refusing to take calls about trading Deshaun Watson, and explains what has to happen to force the Texans to move their franchise QB, in his opinion. Florio references how Stefon Diggs went about getting traded by the Vikings, which involved a tweet he posted on social media. Florio goes on to say that an action like that wouldn't be enough to influence the Texans. Deshaun will have to participate in sit-down interviews and repeatedly say he wants to be traded, and perhaps threaten the Texans with public pressure that would make them look bad.

According to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler, The Houston Texans are signing veteran linebacker Cory Littleton to a 1-year, $2.7 million contract.

The 29-year-old linebacker played last season with the Carolina Panthers, starting 7 games and appearing in 15. He recorded 47 tackles and 2 QB hits.

Littleton spent the first 4 years of his career with the Rams, and went to the Pro Bowl in 2018. He then played 2 seasons with the Raiders before joining the Panthers last season.

PFT is reporting that he played 61% of the Panthers' special teams snaps, and 32% of the defensive snaps in 2022. So it wouldn't be a surprise at all if he's used on special teams with the Texans as well.
