If you think teams won't trade for Watson until his cases are resolved, think again

This Wednesday on The Pat McAfee Show, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport discusses the latest regarding teams and their willingness to acquire Deshaun Watson via trade this season. Rapoport reveals that NFL Network's Mike Garafolo is hearing that the league has no plans to put Watson on the Commissioner's Exempt List at this time, and there are "definitely" teams that would trade for Watson this year.

McAfee is shocked by this information, wondering why a team would risk draft capital without knowing what the future could hold for Watson. Rapoport responds by saying that teams are looking at Watson as a 12-year investment, and if he misses this season, it's not a huge deal in the grand scheme of things.

Check out the video to find out how this could impact what the Texans could get in return for Deshaun.
