With the breaking news that Deshaun Watson wants out of the Houston Texans, this means many NFL Teams are likely trying to put together trade packages for the 25 year-old star. While the world waits for one team to pull the trigger and meet the Texans demands, you can take matters into your hand and try to set up a trade for Watson in Madden 21.
Whether you want to send him out west or up north, you've got 31 options to send Deshaun Watson to, here are some of the trades we can mock up that'll reward you with the three-time Pro Bowler.
1. Deshaun Watson to Miami
One of the most likely destinations for Deshaun Watson this offseason has been rumored to be the Miami Dolphins, who played surprisingly well last season. In Madden, they don't have many high-rated players, but what they lack in overall they strive in potential. One of their recent draft picks, Tua Tagovaiola, has plenty of potential to capture the Texans' eye and plugging him in with an additional asset and draft compensation.
Additionally, Watson's cap hit in Madden before his contract extension kicks in is only around $10 million, meaning you can match the salaries pretty easily and avoid having to match salaries over $30 million. With the right draft pick(s) and giving up your growing QB, you can quickly transform the Dolphins into contenders in the AFC, before bringing in more talent in free agency before his big salary kicks in.
2. Watson to the Panthers
How to Trade for Deshaun Watson in Madden 21
Teaming up Deshaun Watson with Christian McCaffrey in the Carolina Panthers offense seems like a match made in heaven. The Panthers have struggled recently, finishing 5-11 in each of the last two seasons, and Terry Bridgewater wasn't the answer for the team. The Panthers will have a high draft pick this coming draft, which is a very valuable asset to have in trading for a player like Watson. Combine that with one or two young pieces and a future draft pick and you can land yourself the potential best QB/RB duo in the league.
3. Denver Broncos Go for the Hail Mary
Finally we have the Denver Broncos, who make an interesting case in picking up Deshaun Watson in real life and Madden.
Like the Panthers, the Broncos have struggled the last few seasons, and Drew Lock hasn't developed into much just yet as a starting NFL quarterback. So if you want to bring in a certified star QB like Watson, this will take a lot.
The Broncos will also have a high first round draft pick in the NFL Draft in Madden, which already covers a decent amount of the price tag to secure Watson. Sending players like Drew Lock and maybe one of your two starter-quality running backs: Melvin Gordon or Phillip Lindsey, and future draft capital can be enough.
One part of the potential Watson show wherever you take him that we failed to mention is one J.J. Watt should be an available Free Agent in the game, since he has been cut by the Texans. If you want with any of these teams (and if you have the cap space) a reunion can be made a reality, and you can have two certified Pro Bowlers added to your team for the price of one trade. In Madden, your possibilities are endless, so play around with different teams and find out which team will Deshaun Watson fit on the best in your eyes!
