Derrick Henry does not want to see Deshaun Watson in Houston

Tennesse Titans running back Derrick Henry was the latest to make a guest appearance on NFL Network’s Good Morning Football. Co-host Kyle Brandt asked King Henry to give his views on Deshaun Watson’s future with the Texans. The latter gave a blunt and honest response to the same.

He said, “I think it would make it a little bit easier to play them. The last two games we played them, it came down to the wire. Just the type of the player he is, one of the best players in the league. He’s the one that gets them going, and it’s been that way since playing in college; we actually played for the national championship and it was a tough game then.”

“I don’t really know the whole situation really, but whatever occurs to him, I wish him the best. But if he wanted to go the NFC or go somewhere out west or anywhere else than the AFC South, we’d definitely appreciate it,” Henry said on the show.

Watson has been one of the best young quarterbacks in the league over the last two years. It is obvious that he is yet to hit his peak. There is a huge scope of improvement in his game and with the right guidance, Watson can match the likes of Lamar Jackson and Patrick Mahomes in the coming years.
