The Houston Texans are headed for roster upheaval this offseason barring a miracle. The team has deconstructed a possible contender and seemingly run its best talent out of town with confounding moves within the organization.

With that in mind, here are three players who won't be on the roster in 2021.

1. Deshaun Watson

There isn't much else to say about Deshaun Watson and the Texans at this point. He voiced his frustrations and eventually made his trade request public. The team seems to be unwilling to trade him so far, but it's likely a tactic to get potential landing spots to up their trade offers. Even if Houston wants him to stay, he's clearly over the Cal McNair and Jack Easterby experience, and there's little chance he's not on a new team in 2021.

2. Will Fuller

Will Fuller is one of the most intriguing wide receiver free agents this offseason. He had a career showing in 2020 despite playing in just 11 games after a suspension cut his season short. The speedster known for making big plays (16.6 yards per reception this season) could be a key addition to help other teams unlock their passing game. Fuller and Watson are close, and with one likely out of the door, there's no reason for the wideout to stick around.

3. J.J. Watt

At almost 32 years old, J.J. Watt could only have a few short years left of truly dominant play. If the team is gutted by an eventual Watson trade, they won't be contending for years, and the Texans should send Watt out for his last big hurrah. Several teams around the league make sense as a landing spot, whether that be with his home state team in Green Bay or linking up with his brother in Pittsburgh.
