ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reported on Wednesday morning that Deshaun Watson has two teams "on his radar." Watson has a no-trade clause, and he's evaluating teams that he might like to be traded to.

This shouldn't come as too much of a surprise. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are looking for a new QB with Tom Brady retired and Kyle Trask not quite ready to take the starting job. Plus, Ian Rapoport and Tom Pelisserio recently reported that the Bucs could explore trades for Deshaun Watson and Russell Wilson.

Minnesota was mentioned as "The biggest sleeper" for a Deshaun Watson trade by Jordan Schultz a few weeks ago.

Minnesota hasn't been able to get over the hump with Kirk Cousins, so it makes sense that they would consider Watson as an option, especially if his legal issues get resolved in a timely fashion.

Fowler also mentioned that Watson is early in his evaluation process, but "he's looking for the right blend of offensive system, coaching, talent and, most importantly, the chance to win."

Both teams seem to check those boxes. Especially, if Aaron Rodgers leaves Green Bay.

As far as compensation, the Bucs have the 27th overall pick and the Vikings have the 12th overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft. The Bucs would likely have to include some players or some draft picks from the 2023 Draft to get this done.

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.
