Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson has released another cryptic tweet.

On Friday, the three-time Pro Bowl quarterback posted on Twitter, “I was on 2 then I took it to 10.”

The numbers are related to a recent report from ESPN’s Adam Schefter wherein the former 2017 first-round pick had the anger level of two, on a scale of one to 10, relating to the trade of three-time All-Pro receiver DeAndre Hopkins. Due to the hiring of Nick Caserio, the ambiguity as to the role of Jack Easterby, and, at the time, not giving consideration to Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy as a coaching candidate, Watson’s anger with the organization was now at a 10.

Why would Watson state he “was on two” and then “took it to 10”?

Theories abound, but the timing of the tweet comes after the Houston Chronicle’s John McClain interviewing Texans chairman and CEO Cal McNair. In the interview, McNair clarified that Easterby, who served as interim general manager following the firing of Bill O’Brien on Oct. 5, 2020, would revert back to his role as executive vice president of football operations.

McNair, who acknowledged that he had been texting with Watson, stated they wanted their star quarterback to have input in the hiring process.

“We want him in the loop and part of this process,” McNair said.

If Watson’s anger level is indeed at a 10 out of 10, it will take plenty of communication and collaboration to get their key piece to victory back in the fold.
