One of the biggest storylines in the NFL right now is the shaky relationship between quarterback Deshaun Watson and the Houston Texans organization. While there are rumors that he wants to be traded, it is all speculation as nothing official has been reported as of yet.

Odds have been updated as to where Watson will be taking his next NFL snap at and the leader may be surprising to a lot of people. The most likely scenario is no trade at all as the Texans hold the best odds at +200, according to player future odds posted on FanDuel Sportsbook (only available in Colorado right now).

Deshaun Watson Trade Destination Odds

The odds have gone through quite a lot of change since they were first posted. For example, the New York Jets' odds have fallen from +220 to +900 while the Denver Broncos' odds have jumped from +1000 to +300. Rounding out the top five teams right now are the Miami Dolphins (+300), San Francisco 49ers (+350) and the Carolina Panthers (+700).

The most likely scenario according to the updated odds, though, is that Watson is not traded by the start of the season. The Texans are the frontrunners in the odds to be the next team Watson plays a snap for.

With the NFL draft quickly approaching, teams are attempting to have their quarterback decision ready to go sooner rather than later. Trading for Watson would alter the future for almost any NFL franchise. The 25-year-old quarterback is already a 3x Pro-Bowler and is coming off of a season in which he led the NFL with 4,823 passing yards.

For now, no one really knows whether the Texans will say goodbye to their 2017 first-round pick or if he will be back under center for the team in 2021. However, this is going to be a story worth keeping an eye on all the way up until the next NFL season kicks off.
