No one forced him to sign the contract. Watson needs to end his complaining and play out the deal that he chose to sign.
that kinda where I was going with it. He knew when he signed what this organization was all about! Hell, they had just moved Hopkins for nothing right before signing!! He could have told them “hell no” instead of signing then crying. I understand it be tough to pass that money up but not like he couldn’t have gotten it elsewhere if he said no!
Them lying to him was business as usual, if it was hugely important to him he should have gotten in writing!!!! I feel like the timing works against him perception wise. He has no leverage if houston decides to flex!! I’m assuming he keeps the 20+ mil he got this last season but would stand to lose the majority of anything he has coming? They can say money isn’t important to him all they want, money important to everyone!!! How much of it is he willing to lose? Sounds like not participating in the offseason stuff or camp, then missing the preseason could cost him around 2.5-3 mil, then once it gets into reg season games I have no doubt the money he stands to lose gets insane!!!
I guess if I’m him I show up and air mail every pass 10 feet over guys heads, play the worst football imaginable, refuse to scramble, throw the ball to the wrong team over and over again! There nothing houston could do then, paying a guy huge money who intentionally tanking would not be good!! It be a pathetic terrible look for him, I dunno if he can do it??? If he does then what does houston do? Bench him but then has to pay him the whole contract?!?!?? Guess he might have more leverage than I thought if he willing to go here with it!! Not gonna lie, I’m sick and rooting for this situation!! Lol
