The Houston Texans pay limit maneuver will save the team $ 24.6 million over the 2021 pay limit.
This figure is slightly higher than the death toll that the franchise will assume by trading midfielder Deshaun Watson ($ 21.6 million).
While there is no indication that a Watson transaction is being reviewed by the Texans, the franchise reworked a number of contracts this week to create vacancies below the current salary limit.
The Houston Chronicle reported that left rival Laremy Tunsil, outside full-back Whitney Mercilus, ran back to David Johnson and broad receiver Brandin Cooks agreed to restructure the deals.
Tunsil’s altered contract structure saved Texans $ 10.6 million by 2021 and the Cooks move made another $ 6.53 million.
Mercilus saved the team $ 4 million, about the same amount paid for by gymnastics in the Johnson deal.
Watson requested a trade due to out-of-season changes made by the franchise, including new general manager Nick Caserio and head coach David Culley, without consulting the midfielder. this.
Caserio and Culley confirmed that Watson will not be allowed to buy and sell.
A growing question for the rest of the NFL is whether Watson’s worth will be diminished by an active civil action with more than a dozen plaintiffs alleging crime or inappropriate behavior. . No criminal charges are filed in the listed case under the jurisdiction of Harris County, Texas.
