ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that the compensation in the Watson trade has changed, and it benefits the Texans.

The Texans will now receive a 2022 4th round pick that wasn't originally in the deal, and instead of sending a 5th round pick to Cleveland, the Texans will now send a 6th round pick (2024). This tweak to the trade should make Texans fans happy. Many fans were a little disappointed that the Texans would only get one extra pick from the Browns in the 2022 NFL Draft. They were hoping to jump-start the rebuild with several extra picks in this year's draft. So this is a great development for the Texans, and it makes the upcoming draft even more exciting for fans. Plus, the trade package looks a little better for Texans GM Nick Caserio. The Texans now hold multiple picks in these rounds of the 2022 NFL Draft. (1st, 3rd, 4th, 6th).

This week, we react to Laremy Tunsil's absence from Houston Texans OTAs and wonder if he really loves football or if he just loves what football provides him. Tunsil was given more money in the off-season after reworking his contract, and this is coming off a season when Tunsil was only supposed to miss four or five games after suffering a thumb injury in October. But Tunsil missed the rest of the season, which had many fans and media scratching their heads.

Finally, because of Tunsil's apparent disinterest in being with the team, it might be time for the Texans to trade Tunsil, and get something in return before likely cutting him next off-season.

Check out the video to watch the full conversation.
