One ESPN Analyst Says Houston Should Deal Deshaun Watson to the Cowboys for Dak Prescott

The Texans are still maintaining that they want to keep unhappy quarterback Deshaun Watson on their roster for many years to come, despite Watson’s apparent desire to move on elsewhere.

The asking price from the Texans is a lot, as it includes multiple first-round picks. No on though has discussed a possible deal if there’s another young solid QB out there that wants to move on to another team.

The team in question is the Dallas Cowboys, who have a tough offseason decision to make when it comes to franchise QB Dak Prescott, who played 2020 under the franchise tag for about $30 and could do it again in 2021.

Dallas wants to get Prescott inked to a long-term deal, but thus far it’s just not happening, and there’s no word if at some point it will.

One ESPN analyst has an answer to the complicated situation, one so far out there that it just might make sense for all parties involved.

That answer is for Dallas to ink Prescott, then trade him to the Texans for Watson in a one-on-one deal similar to last week’s deal that saw Detroit trade Matthew Stafford to the L.A. Rams for QB Jared Goff along with two first-round picks and a third-round pick.

The analyst from ESPN who came up with the idea is the always outspoken Stephen A. Smith, who said on the network today that a deal of Prescott to the Texans for Watson actually does make sense for all parties involved.

If you look at the ins and outs of the QB’s, it’s an interesting deal for both teams.

Prescott is 27 years old, while Watson is 25, so age isn’t a huge issue as both QB’s have plenty of productive years left in the NFL.

Watson is playing on a four-year, $156 million dollar contract he inked with Houston, a deal that the Cowboys would swallow up if a deal to move Prescott to Houston would actually happen.

It might sound like fantasy football, but in this day and age when all players have to do is say they are “unhappy” and they can get dealt, it might be a move more worth looking into.
