The New York Giants will not trade for quarterback Deshaun Watson, says team co-owner John Mara.
The Texans plan to trade Watson at some point this offseason. Because the Giants expressed interest in former Dolphins head coach Brian Flores, whom Watson likes, NFL reporters surmised last week that the Giants could hire Flores and trade for Watson. Mara crushed those talks quickly.
“We’re not trading for Deshaun Watson,” Mara said Wednesday.
Mara adds Watson is “not the right fit” because of sexual assault allegations and the Giants’ salary cap problems.
So far, both the Dolphins and Giants have said they will not trade for Watson, raising the question of who will?
