Carolina Panthers trade package No. 2

As stated previously, taking on Deshaun Watson and all his legal problems is a gamble of epic proportions. The quarterback is currently dealing with no fewer than 22 sexual misconduct allegations – and there’s just no telling which way they are going to go at this juncture.

Teams are always willing to give players with the talent of Watson a second chance.

Some fans may not like it, but that is just the nature of the business.

Scott Fitterer and Matt Rhule might think they’re in charge. But if David Tepper wants Watson, then the Carolina Panthers will do as he says.

They face some stiff competition from the Miami Dolphins, who are clearly not convinced Tua Tagovailoa is the man to lead them moving forward. Watson has also reportedly stated he’d be willing to join the AFC East team should an agreement come to fruition.

The Panthers need to strike quickly and then it’s up to Watson. There is an abundance of talent on offense in Carolina, even though the coaching staff and Joe Brady, in particular, seem lost without Christian McCaffrey in the backfield.

Giving up three first-round picks is a massive sacrifice for any player. Especially for one that might not even be around if matters in the courtroom don’t come to a successful conclusion for him.

Two of these – in 2023 and 2024 – should be conditional and only given up if Watson is eligible to play. Otherwise, the Panthers should walk away.
