Deshaun Watson's agent, David Mulugheta, has denied that the Houston Texans quarterback has had any talks with either the Tampa Bay Buccaneers or the Minnesota Vikings. This week, it was reported that Watson has set his eyes on the Buccaneers and Vikings as his possible destinations.
Watson has been sued by 22 women and he is facing a criminal investigation by the Houston Police Department for alleged sexual misconduct. Watson's primary focus is on clearing his name. “We haven’t had any talks among ourselves or with teams about possible destinations as we are focused on clearing Deshaun’s name at this time," Mulugheta said, per Josina Anderson.
The Buccaneers could be interested in Watson
Tom Brady announced his retirement and the Buccaneers are in the need of a new starting quarterback. This week, Brady was asked on his Let's Go! podcast about the chances of him changing his mind and playing next season.
“Tom, there’s gonna be a lot of interest in what you do next,” host Jim Gray said, via quotes distributed by SiriusXM. “You stay close to the fans by doing this program. This is our last show. We won’t be talking to you on a weekly basis until next August.
People can follow you on your social media handles, but how are you gonna go about your life? And if somebody sees you out working out because you’re staying in shape that’s going to lead to all kinds of rumors.
So what will you be doing next with yourself? And will you stay in shape or are you gonna start running over to eat a few key lime pies?” “You know I love those key lime pies, too,” Brady said. “That’s my dessert of choice.
So there’ll definitely be a few more of those and I’m super content and happy with how I feel in my decision. All you can do is take it day by day, nothing’s promised for us. I’m gonna do things I really enjoy and spend time with people that I really enjoy spending time with.
So the future is bright. I look forward to the opportunities that are ahead and I look forward to speaking with everyone again next year. So I’ve had a great time doing the show. We’ll keep it going and thank you to everyone for their amazing support, thanks for another great NFL football season. And I hope it just keeps getting better and better from here”.
