The Houston Texans’ impending coaching hire is not expected to change Deshaun Watson‘s thinking about a trade.

At this point, it appears nothing the Houston Texans do will change Deshaun Watson‘s mind. He wants out.

Watson will not change his mind about wanting out of Houston no matter who the organization hires as the team’s next head coach, per ESPN’s Chris Mortensen.

Watson, 25, continues to live the disgruntled football life. It began with his taking a 2 and turning it up to a 10 comment and has continued with reports that he wanted the Texans to interview now-New York Jets head coach Robert Saleh.

Watson’s business manager liking any Watson-to-the-Jets social media content has also fueled the Jet-specific rumors. Even Watson himself liked an Instagram post featuring a New York Post‘s back page featuring a Brian Costello article with the angle that the Jets must do whatever it takes to land the stud quarterback.

As it currently stands right now, there isn’t much Joe Douglas, the Jets or Watson can officially say on the matter. The NFL playoffs are ongoing and the new league year is still over a month away.

That obviously won’t help turn down the current noise on the matter.

Many wondered if the Texans’ recent Eric Bieniemy interview would help mend the Watson ties—as Bieniemy was one the other of the two prospective coaches Watson wanted to see his organization interview. Mortensen’s report suggests nothing will help keep the Clemson product in Houston.

Deshaun Watson threw for 4,823 yards and 33 touchdowns to seven interceptions in 16 games for the Houston Texans this past season.

I like Watson but the more i read on his scouting report the most im scared of this trade. 3-4 major knee injuries dating back to college. I honestly in this point take Zach Wilson or trade the pick and get a massive upgrade for the team for the future
