Deshaun Watson made headlines on Sunday when he reported to Houston Texans training camp. The arrival of No. 4 marked the end of a six-month standoff between Watson and the AFC South club.

With the three-time Pro Bowler blinking in a stare down with the organization, there was some interest as to how he would comport himself rejoining a team he can’t wait to leave.

According to Tom Pelissero of the NFL Network, Watson actually was “respectful” when he showed up to Texans camp. However, the former 2017 first-round pick is still adamant that he wants to be traded and continue his pro football career in another NFL city.

The Texans’ first training camp practice is Wednesday at 9:00 p.m. Central Time. By reporting to camp, Watson avoids a fine of $50,000 per day.

The Texans signed Watson to a four-year, $156 million contract in September of 2020. The 25-year-old will cost the Texans $15.94 million against the salary cap in 2021.
