The news broke Thursday following the announcement that the Texans had hired David Culley as their new head coach to replace Bill O’Brien, who was fired after an 0-4 start to the season.

Although the franchise is struggle to change Watson’s mind about his desire to leave, ESPN Sports Analyst Marcus Spears made a convincing argument when discussing the possible trade on NFL Live.
“Let me show how mad you have to be to leave H-Town,” Spears said before listing numerous sacrifices athletes like Watson and James Harden are making by departing.
Here are all the reasons Spears says the current Texans quarterback shouldn’t leave Houston:
- Turkey Leg Hut
- Frenchy’s Chicken
- The Galleria
- No state income tax
