With veteran quarterbacks inking free-agent deals, the QB market is quickly drying up. However, that leaves less competition over a trade for Houston Texans star Deshaun Watson, opening the door for other interested teams to get involved.

One intriguing franchise has emerged as a potential suitor.

Deshaun Watson Eagles Trade Rumors

According to Jason La Canfora of CBS, "many" sources he's spoken with who are connected to the Philadelphia Eagles have floated the possibility of the team pursuing a Watson trade. It'd be a shocking and bold move for Philadelphia, especially given what they've already gone through this offseason.

The Carson Wentz drama finally ended with a trade to the Indianapolis Colts, and the team seemed ready to start building around second-round pick Jalen Hurts. However, there's been murmurs regarding the team's belief in Hurts, so it's plausible that they pursue an upgrade in Watson if it's possible.

It will require a boatload of assets to even get the Texans' attention on any offer, with three-plus first-round picks the reported starting point.

However, the Eagles have the draft capital to spend, and Watson's 2021 cap hit ($15.9 million) is manageable with the right moves, providing a glimmer of hope for this possibly franchise-changing move coming to fruition.
