Raiders poll: Would you want J.J. Watt?

The Texans pass rusher could be part of big changes to come in Houston

The NFL is watching how things unfold in Houston with the Texans and quarterback Deshaun Watson, who is reportedly unhappy with team management.

There is already chatter that the star QB could want a trade. We’re not anywhere close to connecting Watson to the Raiders, although I wouldn’t be shocked if that is made by someone at some point.

For now, I’m more intrigued by the possibility of another Houston star: pass rusher J.J. Watt. The possibility of him coming to the Raiders is already being talked about.

I’m not sure where I sit on the idea of the Raiders making a play for Watt, whether it’s in a trade or if he’s released. Watt, a 10-year veteran, only had five sacks in 2020 and he has dealt with a lot of injuries. He probably would be fairly pricey, too.

Yes, the Raiders need all the pass rush they can get and he would be a nice leader for a young unit, plus it’s totally a Jon Gruden move. But I’m not sure he would be the answer.
