The fallout

Then that brings on another question. How reliable is this franchise? Can a player be convinced that this franchise is a home for them and their family? How do they know that a move won’t be pulled involving them any second? It has clearly been demonstrated based on the trade that talent means nothing if O’Brien doesn’t like that player or if that player wants extra dollars in their bank account. Or is that just an issue with Billy Bob?

Would Deshaun Watson really want to re-sign with a team culture that looks like this? With one man in power who is yet to prove that he deserves all that power!? There are better teams out there who are on the rise or know how to deal with issues that come with generational talent than this one. Anybody can be traded at any second when it comes to this team. Who’s to say that J.J. isn’t next?

Deshaun’s top weapon is gone now. He won’t have a reliable option to look for when defensive linemen gets to him within two seconds because this offensive line isn’t perfect yet. What will Fuller and Stills do when safeties just go ahead and cover the deep part of the field because they won’t have to defend the best hands in the league? What will happen if/when Stills and/or Fuller get hurt? Randall Cobb isn’t Hopkins nor is he the same player he was five years ago.

I sure as hell have no idea.

It’s not like the Texans, A.K.A the Bill O’Brien realm, have the guts to sign Antonio Brown.
