Houston Texans head coach David Culley reaffirmed that the team plans to keep star quarterback Deshaun Watson.
Watson had been the subject of trade rumors all offseason, but Culley said that the Texans don’t have a contingency plan at quarterback.
David Culley on the QB situation: “There is no contingency plan. (Deshaun Watson) is a Houston Texan, and that’s how we’re moving forward with it. We’re committed to him, as I said before.”

Watson reportedly told Culley that he has no intention of playing for Houston again, but the Texans head coach seems optimistic that Watson will be the team’s quarterback in 2021.
Last season, Watson threw for 4,823 yards, 33 touchdowns and just seven interceptions.
He is widely considered to be one of the league’s best quarterbacks, so if the Texans did decide to trade him, they could likely net a solid return of draft picks.
