There's still no telling what will happen with Watson off of the field. And those results will play a huge factor in determining if he sees any kind of suspension during the 2021 season.

Teams are still interested in the QB despite the questions regarding him. Houston is looking for a bounty in exchange for the fifth-year pro, reportedly seeking three first-round picks and two second-round picks.

Depending on how Tua Tagovailoa performs this year, Miami may be in the market for a franchise QB like Watson if the former is underwhelming. Carolina could face a similar situation if new arrival Sam Darnolds fails to impress.

It appears trade speculation around Watson isn't going away as Week 1 of the regular season approaches.
