While the NFC West has had some splashes this offseason, the biggest name that is likely going to be playing somewhere else in 2021 has still not landed.
Deshaun Watson wants out of Houston and the Texans are trying to find the right package while still holding out hope that Watson will change his mind.
Arizona Cardinals fans are interested because one of Watson’s alleged preferred destinations is San Francisco with the 49ers, which would suck for the Cardinals.
However, in that same article another team was mentioned... The Denver Broncos, and the Broncos are now the favorites to land Watson.
FanDuel had Denver at +150, then a slew of teams stacked together with the Houston Texans (+300), Miami Dolphins (+350), and the Carolina Panthers (+400) the closest to Denver’s odds. Another oddsmaker had roughly the same odds as FanDuel, but had the Dolphins died at +300 with the Texans. Denver still sat the top at +150.
That would be good news for the Cardinals. Don’t get me wrong, where the Cardinals are is good, but Watson is what we hope Kyler Murray can get to and is still only 25-years old.
He would make the 49ers good for a long time.
On the otherhand, if the Broncos get Watson, it doesn’t affect the Cardinals unless it is a potential Super Bowl matchup, which let’s be honest, we would just be excited to be back in that conversation.
