Deshaun Watson's future remains a question mark both on and off the field. In terms of on the field, he still wants to be traded away from Houston, although that doesn't seem to be happening anytime soon because of his off-the-field issues.

With so many question marks around Watson, the Texans did their best to find potential replacements this offseason. They brought in Tyrod Taylor and Jeff Driskel, and drafted Davis Mills out of Stanford. This gives them plenty of options.

However, Watson has shown up to Texans training camp the last couple of days, leaving some to question where Watson actually stands within the organization.

That question was answered quickly and emphatically with the release of the team's depth chart on Wednesday. Watson is listed as the fourth-string QB, behind all of the names listed above.

We knew Watson's future was uncertain, but it is now confirmed from the Texans perspective. Teams usually don't even carry a fourth quarterback, some don't even carry three at times. Watson being fourth on the depth chart tells you everything you need to know about how the franchise views him at this point.
