Deshaun Watson asks fans not to march toward NRG Stadium, but rally goes on

By SportsRadio 610

HOUSTON (SportsRadio 610) -- Despite Deshaun Watson's plea for fans not to march toward NRG Stadium in support of the Texans' franchise quarterback, about 50 people gathered in front of the bull on Kirby Drive.

Donned in Texans jerseys, with some signs calling for president of football operations Jack Easterby's firing, fans walked from the Lefty's Cheesesteak restaurant, owned by Watson just a few blocks away from the stadium.

They chanted "Fire Jack Easterby" and "Cal (McNair) sell the team" but the purpose was to support the quarterback, who is unhappy with the front office for their general manager and head coach hiring process.

Teams have inquired about trading for Watson, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

A report by ESPN's Sarah Barshop indicated "the Texans have had internal conversations about possible trade partners and what their quarterback position would look like" without Watson.

But fans aren't having it. They're frustrated with the organization, specifically chairman and CEO Cal McNair, for allowing it to get to this point.

Watson spoke during the season about the Texans' lack of organizational foundation and their need for new leadership.
