However, there are caveats in getting the Pro Bowl quarterback from Clemson.
First, Watson has a no-trade clause, giving him full control regarding his preferred destination.
Second, his availability remains in limbo because of the sexual misconduct cases he is facing.
But granted that he could sort out the second, every team looking for a franchise quarterback desires to have the 2020 passing yards leader.
Regarding the Watson sweepstakes, NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport tweeted, “This should make for a fascinating few days. Deshaun Watson’s market is strong, with the #Panthers back on the hunt and the #Seahawks in need of a top notch QB.”

Possible Teams In The Mix For Watson
Likewise, the Seattle Seahawks might use the assets they acquired from the Broncos in the Wilson trade to get him.
Watson also declared teams within his radar like the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Minnesota Vikings.
Finally, the Pittsburgh Steelers might also cast their dice into the lot.
Seeing how the Watson sweepstakes will unfold should be nerve-racking.
