Current Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson has reached out to congratulate Dwayne Haskins on signing with the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Watson said "blessing brother" to which Haskins replied "Love big brudda."
Does that mean Watson wants to join his friend in Pittsburgh? Who knows but it’s fun to speculate.
Along with Patriots quarterback Cam Newton, Haskins and Watson worked out together in the offseason.
Haskins signed a Reserve/Future deal with the Steelers on Thursday after he was cut by the Washington Football Team late last month.
Watson’s relationship in Houston has reportedly soured with him taking to social media to express his frustration.
Pittsburgh is considered a longshot to land Watson if Houston does indeed deal him and reportedly would cost whoever lands him at least three #1 draft picks
Many question marks remain for the Steelers at quarterback.
While Ben Roethlisberger does have one more year on his current contract, it comes with a heavy cap hit of over $41 million hit.
Roethlisberger could decide to retiring after struggling the last few games of the 2020 season, or the Steelers could give him an ultimatum of retiring or they’ll cut him.
If he is not on the team next season he will have the Steelers over $22 million in cap space and that would only get the organization close to even.
