With the NFL's final roster cut-down date and regular season looming, the league saw some significant movement surrounding Deshaun Watson's trade rumors. Both the Miami Dolphins and Carolina Panthers were linked to the quarterback, however, the Houston Texans' asking price is far too steep for potential suitors.

On Tuesday, NFL insider Tom Pelissero confirmed that Watson's trade market has completely stalled and he'll likely remain on the Texans' roster for Week 1 kickoff.

According to reports as recent as Saturday, Houston eyed a trio of first-round picks and two second-round picks for any teams inquiring his trade value. With all of the legal troubles around this stud quarterback, that price is simply too unreasonable.

The shocking New England Patriots cut of former MVP Cam Newton could further cloud Watson's trade value. For now, Watson will remain in Houston. As he deals with the legal issues, the Texans are prepared to keep Watson on the active roster without seeing any playing time.

Houston heads into Week 1 of the NFL season as 3-point home underdogs against the Jacksonville Jaguars, according to NFL odds on FanDuel Sportsbook.
