You know what’s worse than being terrible during an NFL season? Not having any first or second round draft picks to make yourself better the following year.
For the first time since the 2008 season, the Houston Texans are winless through four games and it cost Bill O’Brien his head coaching and GM job. Before the 2019 season, O’Brien mortgaged the future by trading a package of picks for left tackle Laremy Tunsil and wide receiver Kenny Stills.
He then traded Hopkins and a 4th round pick to the Cardinals.
Colin Cowherd thinks the team nees to go ahead and trade JJ Watt to try and get some draft picks. He even laid out which teams they should be calling to make that happen.
“The Texans have no draft picks left and they have no cap space,” he said this week.
“What they have to do, and this is really uncomfortable for them, is to trade JJ Watt. There is four really good teams in the NFL like Seattle and Baltimore who need a pass rush… If you don’t have draft picks and you don’t have cap space going forward you can get both moving one player.
“He’s perfect for Seattle, he’s perfect for Baltimore, and the Niners could use him too. You’re already paying your quarterback a fortune. You can’t tell me there’s not a market for JJ Watt. He feels like a Patriot. I can already picture him in a Patriots uniform. He feels like he would be a great fit for the Ravens or the Seahawks.”
