The more time that passes in the NFL offseason, the more people begin to wonder what will happen with Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson. He's made it abundantly clear that he doesn't want to continue his career with the AFC South squad.

With that said, while Watson has asked the team to send him elsewhere, NFL insider Tom Pelissero is reporting the team hasn't engaged in trade talks.

While the team hasn't been working on a trade for Watson, it looks like they may have a backup plan in place. Pelissero is also reporting that Alex Smith could be a potential option for the team.

If Houston were to trade Watson, they'd of course need to get several first-round picks in return. He's one of the best dual-threat signal-callers in the game. Only time will tell where he'll play next year, but it sure feels like he could be suiting up for a new team next fall.
