Deshaun Watson is the worst trade in NFL history

Up to this point there was seemingly nothing that could compare to the 1989 Hershel Walker trade.  

That’s when Minnesota, in their eternal football desperation, gave up five players, a host of draft picks for their “missing piece” in Walker 

Now there’s a chance the Deshaun Watson trade could be even worse. Couldn’t happen to a nicer guy.

Watson exited the game on Sunday vs. the Colts after taking a big hit that led to a test under the concussion protocol, and questions about the state of his shoulder.  

Like save and share

Browns’ coach Kevin Stefanski elected to keep Watson out of the game, citing an abundance of caution with his players, and reiterating that Watson is his starter of the future. 

This season Watson is 30th in passer rating among quarterbacks who have started one game.  

The excuse in 2022 was that this was “rust.” Watson’s struggles were a product of being away from football for 18 months, and some of that was valid.
