Now that the 2020 NFL season is officially over, teams have begun looking forward to next season.
There are several franchises that could be trading their quarterbacks in the offseason. The obvious headliner is Houston’s Deshaun Watson, who has openly asked to be traded.
The Texans have made it clear that they have no interest in trading their franchise quarterback, but they might not have a choice.
“The goal is to get him back, period,” one person with knowledge of the organization said, according to NFL Media.
Offshore sportsbook BetOnline updated their odds for Watson’s next team on Tuesday. He was listed as a +400 ‘chalk’ to land in Miami last month, but he is now a +250 favorite to end up with the Jets. Miami is priced at +350, while Carolina is +450.
Atlanta and New Orleans were previously listed at 8/1 to snag Watson, but the Falcons are now 33/1 and the Saints are 40/1. Bovada had Watson at -160 to play next year’s season-opener with Houston in a prop that was available in mid-January.
Russell Wilson is another name that has been popping up in recent trade rumors. There are multiple teams interested in the eight-time Pro Bowler, according to CBS Sports.
Wilson made an appearance on the Dan Patrick Show on Tuesday, addressing the trade rumors.
“Yeah, I definitely believe they’ve gotten calls,” Wilson said. “Any time you’re a player that tries to produce every week and has done it consistently, I think people are gonna call for sure. I think that’s part of the process.”
BetOnline posted odds for potential landing spots. Las Vegas is listed as a +300 ‘chalk,’ while Dallas (6/1), Jacksonville (7/1), Washington (8/1) and San Francisco (9/1) are all within 10/1 as well.
The report from CBS Sports noted that New Orleans, Las Vegas and Miami have all expressed interest. BetOnline has the Saints listed at 25/1 to land Wilson, while the Dolphins are 12/1.
Wilson, 32, has been with Seattle for his entire career. He is in the middle of a four-year, $140 million extension that he signed in 2019.
“I’m not sure if I’m available or not,” Wilson said Tuesday. “That’s a Seahawks question.”
Another quarterback involved in trade rumors is Philadelphia’s Carson Wentz. The two teams that are reportedly at the top of the list are Indianapolis and Chicago. Wentz “prefers the Colts’ situation,” according to ProFootballTalk’s Chris Simms.
BetOnline lists Chicago at +100 and Indianapolis at +150. The Broncos are the next closest team, but they are 8/1 to land Wentz.
Wentz was +400 to go to Indianapolis last month.
