Las Vegas Rolling the Dice on Watson
Las Vegas receives: Deshaun Watson
Houston receives: Three 1st Round Picks (’21, ’22, ’24), Derek Carr, Johnathan Abram
Is Jon Gruden really happy with Derek Carr? There are rumblings that he’d like to bring in his own guy to command the quarterback spot. We know the Raiders aren’t shy about rolling the proverbial dice on a high-profile athlete. Houston would make this trade under the assumption that Las Vegas would underachieve — thus adding extra value to the trio of first-round picks. Carr would be a solid stopgap at the QB spot, and Abram is a physical player with high intensity and immense hitting ability. The Raiders would then feature an offense with Watson, Josh Jacobs, and Darren Waller. This would immediately become one of the better offensive skill groups in the AFC.
