Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson reportedly has decided that he wants to play for the Cleveland Browns and is willing to waive his no-trade clause.

Watson will also get a fully guaranteed deal with the Browns.

Watson, who didn’t play in the 2021 season due to allegations of sexual assault against him, is considered one of the most talented quarterbacks in the league when he is on the field.

In the 2020 season, Watson threw for 4,823 yards, 33 touchdowns and seven interceptions. He will help the Browns improve at the quarterback spot after Baker Mayfield struggled last season.

The Browns and Texans haven’t announced the exact terms of the deal, so it will be interesting to see how much Cleveland gives up.
