Deshaun Watson has yet to officially ask the Houston Texans for a trade. But the quarterback still appears to be disgruntled with the franchise.

According to ESPN, Watson is “expected to want out” from Houston no matter who the Texans hire to fill their coaching vacancy. Houston is reportedly seeking second interviews with Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy and Buffalo Bills defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier. 

But Watson is upset with the Texans over their hiring of general manager Nick Caserio — and has the New York Jets and the Miami Dolphins at the top of his potential trade destinations, the Miami Herald reported. 

The Texans have not committed to trading Watson, but have explored possible options internally, according to ESPN. If made available, the 25-year-old is expected to be heavily pursued as Watson led the league in passing yards last season and is seen as a franchise-changing quarterback. According to multiple reports, league insiders believe Watson could warrant three first-round picks if traded. 

The Texans, meanwhile, are the last team to have a coaching vacancy this offseason out of seven openings.
