The Texans tried to keep Watson in the loop on the head coaching hire, but reports are that Watson wouldn't take calls from the Texans as they conducted their search and hired David Culley. At Culley's introductory press conference in January, the new head coach insisted Watson will be his quarterback. "Deshaun Watson is a Houston Texan; he's the quarterback of the Houston Texans," Culley said.
Former Houston Texans star J.J. Watt has been offered between $15-16 million a year by at least one of the teams pursuing him as a free agent. According to ESPN’s Dianna Rusinni, several teams have already made offers to the star defensive lineman. Watt described his free agency experience as being “wild” in a tweet earlier this month following his release from the Texans.
And with the current status of Deshaun Watson's concerns, losing Fuller seems problematic for their plans of building a contender for years to come. That's fine. Fuller or not, speed wins in the NFL.
