The Texans can add another early round bust to their checkered draft record.

On Sunday, the team waived D'Onta Foreman, who was presumed to be the backup running back. The former UT star was a third-round pick in 2017. He showed flashes that year before an Achilles injury. He missed most of last season, but had come into camp ready to solidify the backup job.

However, according to John McClain, Foreman's work ethic was not up to snuff.

Foreman was drafted during the Rick Smith regime, which was notorious for poor third round picks. Add Foreman to the list.

Foreman has talent and can easily help a team if he is motivated. For the Texans, it further weakens a group that was a huge question mark to begin with. Lamar Miller remains entrenched as the starter, but everything behind him is a major question mark. As much as the Texans run the football, it can't be understated what a concern this has become. Foreman at least had potential. Now with that chip gone, the Texans will have to find something behind Miller. We just know it won't be Foreman.

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.
