Deshaun Watson hints at wanting Houston Texans to sign Antonio Brown

Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson has made it pretty much clear that he would love his team to sign Antonio Brown as the seven-time Pro Bowl wide receiver remains unsigned after all the off court issues he had last season.

Brown, who was selected by the Pittsburgh Steelers in the sixth round of the 2010 NFL draft, was traded to the Oakland Raiders -- the current Las Vegas Raiders -- last offseason but he never played a game in a Silver and Black.

Brown was pretty unhappy with the Steelers in his last season with the team and he seemed to be pretty excited when he became a Raider -- but the love for his new team didn't last long as the wide receiver confronted the team's General Manager Mike Mayock and reportedly didn't mince words.

Shortly after, 31-year-old Brown publicly asked the Raiders to trade him -- and though the Raiders were excited about the opportunity to work with one of the best players of the game -- they chose the team over a player as they cut the wide receiver.

Coach Bill Belichick thought he could help Brown and handle his personality but the wide receiver's career with the New England Patriots was short-lived as the team from Foxborough cut the 31-year-old after just one game played once assualt allegations were brought against him.

Since then, Brown has had several more off court incidents but he has apologized for his behavior as in recent months he has been working with NFL stars and trying to work his way back into the league.

Watson wanting Brown shouldn't come as a surprise

The Texans, who had one of the best receivers of the game in the name of DeAndre Hopkins, traded the four-time Pro Bowl wide receiver this offseason and some reports suggested that Watson wasn't particularly happy after losing his long-time wide receiver.

Brown has had his problems on and off the court throughout his career but his numbers never suffered as he has been one of the top receivers in the game ever since he came to the league. Watson, who was selected in the first round of the 2017 NFL draft, has already established himself as one of the best quarterbacks in the league and pairing him with one of the best wide receivers of the league could be scary.

Even if a certain team decides to give a chance to Brown, the wide receiver probably wouldn't be available to suit up immediately as he will likely face a suspension from the NFL once he officlaly returns to the league.
