The Eagles added former Jaguars quarterback Gardner Minshew to the roster on Saturday and appeared to have bowed out of the Deshaun Watson sweepstakes.

According to Charles Robinson of Yahoo Sports, Watson’s no-trade clause and the Texans asking price of three first-round and two second-round picks also played a huge role in Philadelphia and Carolina bowing out.

The NFL hasn’t placed him on the exempt list since his civil cases won’t go to trial this year and Watson could still face league suspension once his issues have been resolved, but the Eagles appear to be moving on.
