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 Deshaun Watson saga over in Houston. The franchise quarterback 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 trade on Thursday of this week. So, now, let the speculation really begin.

Bleacher Report ranked the best possible landing spots for the star quarterback, placing your Dallas Cowboys 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.”

Bleacher Report is correct that despite saying out loud that they are committed to Dak Prescott, 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 free agency in a couple months. Especially after seeing how this offense, 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 first round 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 Jerry Jones better not give those teams that chance.

What do you think?

  1. Hey Kevin Brady , Tell me who has had for most part of there career so far , who’s had a better O-Line so far ? Who’s had better weapons overall so far ? Who’s had the better D overall so far ? Marcellus Wiley said earlier this week on SFY “We only count what we see , but it’s the things we don’t see that counts the most” Your take on D Watson vs. Dak is LAZY you have to dig deeper than just stats , you gotta look at what they’ve had around them , D WATSON IS THE BETTER QB , DAK ISN’T COMPETITION , let’s check out so far for the season when Dak was healthy this year , 1-4 that’s including the Giants game where Dak got hurt in the 3rd quarter , he should’ve been 0-5 if the Falcons would’ve just fell on the ball on the onside kick ,and ppl out there who wants to poo poo on our D , the D held the Rams week 1 from scoring in the 4th Quarter, the Rams only scored 1 TD the entire 2nd half , the cowboys only got a field goal for the entire 2nd half and lost by a field goal , was that the cowboys D’s fault ? WELL EXCUSE ME , I GUESS THEY GOT TO HOLD THE RAM’S TO ZERO POINTS IN THE 2ND HALF NEXT TIME . Falcons game week 2 the D did give up 29 pts. in the first half but in the 3rd Quarter they held the Falcons score less and gave up 10 in the 4th , where as the cowboys DIDN’T SCORE A POINT IN THE FIRST QUARTER AND ONLY SCORED 10 PTS FOR THE FIRST HALF VS. THE FALCONS AND THERE GREAT D , and we should’ve lost as i said earlier , week 3 game vs. Seahawks , I’ll concede , this game was on the D and Dak played well as did the offense , week 4 vs. Browns , Cowboys score 14 pts. in first quarter , but then they don’t score till all the way into the 4th when the Browns are up 41 to 14 and the Browns were playing prevent allowing the cowboys to get whatever they wanted underneath , now the D was AWFUL but Dak , YOU CAN’T GO SCORELESS THROUGH THE 2ND QUARTER AND THE 3RD QUARTERS , week 5 vs Giants , Dak scored only a field goal compared to 14 pts the giants got in first quarter , Dak is able to take the lead in the first half 24-20 and then he gets hurt , so out of all those games , in which one did it say to you that he’s better than D Watson ? NONE for me , ANYONE WHO SAYS DAK IS EQUAL TO D WATSON IS AN IDIOT WHO DOESN’T KNOW FOOTBALL

  2. You guys who believe Dak is better or just as good as D Watson are FOOLS who can’t see clearly through there own BIAS go ahead pay Dak between D Watson money and Mahomes money , and we’ll see how much of a GOD AWFUL DECISION THAT WILL BE , YOU PPL ARE MORONS , THERE’S SOOOO Many expletives I want to call you ppl , i could go through the WHOLE ALPHABET of every word out there

  3. Have to say, your 1st line is flawed. Let’s keep in mind that despite his fantasy football numbers, Dak is 8-10 the last 2 years and is as likely as not, the 10 are a direct result of his poor play vs good teams and/or turnovers.

    Put Watson on this Cowboy team and they are EASILY in the playoffs and likely make a good run. He doesn’t come cheap but you need to win now.

    Dak has been offered top money, he wants more and not willing to budge. Tells me for him it’s “show me the money”. . . .not the titles.

  4. Sorry, I said 1st line . . .it’s actually this line:

    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?

    They have tired to extend Dak for 2-3 years. . .he doesn’t want to play. . . ..

  5. Dak’s all about getting maximum of what he can get and the problem i have with that and why it is different from other guys who trying to get max of what they can get on 1st contract is that none of those guys are the Dallas Cowboys QB , they don’t make 50 mill OFF JUST ENDORSEMENTS like Dak does . It’s GREED on Dak’s part , i get Zeke wanting to get his cuz of uncertainty as a RB , you can be gone as quick as you come into the league , Dak should be QB that will be around for at least 10 years , if he’s as great as everyone has told me about which should mean that if he stayed with cowboys for that span , he’ll make 50 mill a year plus with the cap going up like everyone says it will, he’ll be making at least 30 probably more than that a year to go on top of the 50 mill a year , let’s CUT THE BS that if Dak doesn’t get his max that he’s gonna be hurting bruh it’s RIDICULOUS

  6. Easy there throwup88 no need to get disrespectful. Ur opinion is just an opinion its not fact. There are no absolutes here just opinions. It deludes ur argument when you attack people. Dak is trying to get paid what he can just like every other player in NFL history has. It’s a business plain and simple. It’s not fair and it sucks but EVERY player does it.

    As they say don’t hate the player hate the game.

  7. By the way a QBs career can end in a blink of an eye just as a RB. There are no guarantees for any player. Football is a brutal sport.

  8. Forget all of the idiots that are hating on Dak because Jerry screwed up, first of all. Secondly, Show me ONE season where they both finished the season and tell me by the numbers AND leadership who was better? Sho wasnt Deshaun…..First round pick vs 4th round pick! STFU!
