ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that the Houston Texans and DT Maliek Collins have agreed to a contract. Collins will return to the Texans on a 2-year, $17 million deal with $8.5 million guaranteed.

We've heard several reports that the Texans were looking to find a way to bring Collins back, and they did exactly that. Lovie Smith mentioned Collins during his NFL Combine interview as one of several players the team was hoping to retain. The 26-year-old defensive tackle started 15 games and recorded 2.5 sacks with 7 QB hits for Houston in 2021. Collins was drafted by the Cowboys out of Nebraska in the third round in 2016.

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.
