The Houston Texans are not having the best offseason as their star players are wanting out after their poor showing in 2020.

The issues started when star quarterback Deshaun Watson expressed that he wanted out of Houston.

John Lopez of Sports Radio 610 in Houston reported that things are “pretty much irreparable” between the organization and Watson.

Watson is reportedly unhappy with how the organization approached a crucial offseason after going 4-12 in 2020.

However, Lopez also reported that star defensive end J.J. Watt could be the latest player to want out.

“Texans are leaning toward accommodating J.J. and he’ll likely be moved,” said Lopez.

Watt is apparently in the same boat as Watson and doesn’t agree with how this crucial offseason has been handled after the struggles of 2020.

Watt has had his fair share of injuries throughout his career but played in all 16 games in 2020.

The 31-year-old finished the season with 52 tackles, 14 tackles for loss, five sacks, a pick-six, and recovered a fumble.

Watt is still a very productive player and will provide a team with experience and talent wherever he lands in 2021.

With that being said, should the Cincinnati Bengals pursue Watt and try to get a deal done bringing the 10-year veteran to Cincinnati?
