(SportsRadio 610) -- The relationship between Deshaun Watson and Texans CEO Cal McNair, at the very least, seems to be damaged.

So we ask the question: who needs to be the catalyst at NRG Stadium to get this relationship back on track.

CBS Sports analyst and former Raiders CEO Amy Trask joined Payne and Pendergast to answer this question and further discuss the situation with Watson and the Texans' front office.

"It must start, in my view, with Cal McNair," Trask said. "When you own a business, and have full total control of that business, and have full authority and full responsibility, you must be the leader. Even owners who delegate authority and responsibilities have the ability to take back that delegation. ...

"I believe this rests on Cal McNair to try and repair this damage."

Watson is disgruntled because he did not believe in the general manager hiring process leading to the Texans' tabbing former Patriots executive Nick Caserio.

McNair has said he communicated with Watson through text messages recently, with he and Caserio both assuring the quarterback he will be part of the head coach hiring process.

But Watson has reached a point where the trust is lacking, and it's unclear whether he will request a trade, or how the head coach hire could influence his decision.
