Bleacher Report Names Cowboys 10th Best Landing Spot For QB Deshaun Watson

If you follow football at all, you've certainly been locked into the saga over in Houston. The franchise is coming off of an incredibly productive individual season, though it was a season in which his team went a dismal 4-12.

Watson is looking for his way out of the dysfunctional Texans franchise, and officially requested a on Thursday of this week. So, now, let the speculation really begin.

Bleacher Report ranked the best possible landing spots for quarterback, placing your at number ten.

“So if the Cowboys can't get a deal done with Prescott soon, it might be worth considering an offer for Watson involving this year's No. 10 overall pick, a 2022 first-rounder and at least a Day 2 selection in either 2021 or 2022.”

is correct that despite saying out loud that they are committed to , we haven't seen the tangible financial commitment made just yet. Maybe it's just a matter of time, or maybe there is more turmoil than we know.

Either way, it is a bit concerning that Prescott is set to enter unrestricted in a couple months. Especially after seeing how this , and team, looked without him in 2020.

I have a better idea than trading for Deshaun Watson, though. How about they extend the guy they already have without giving up draft capital?

Prescott has performed just as good, if not better, than Watson year in and year out. He's proven to be the absolute definition of a franchise quarterback, and won over the Cowboys locker room from the minute he stepped into it.

He is Mr. Cowboy right now, and it shouldn't be this hard to keep him around longterm. You may think that Watson is better than Prescott, and maybe his raw talent is slightly greater. After all, he was a pick and college star for a reason. But Prescott has proven that he is actually the better NFL quarterback of the two, and is one of the most valuable assets in all of football.

Stop thinking the grass is greener on the other side. Because, guess what, it isn't. The majority of the league would kill for a chance at Prescott on the open market, and better not give those teams that chance.
