Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson’s availability for the 2021 NFL season remains uncertain as he faces nearly two dozen civil lawsuits accusing him of sexual misconduct related to his alleged actions during massage therapy sessions.

Until the lawsuits against him are settled, Watson is unlikely to be traded. However, if the Texans end up moving on from their star quarterback, there’s a destination that Watson reportedly has in mind.

Jackson suited up with Watson on the Texans during the 2017 and 2018 seasons.

Watson, the No. 12 pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, finished the 2020 season with a league-high 4,823 passing yards and 33 touchdowns and a career-low seven interceptions.
