According to reports, Deshaun Watson’s dissatisfaction with the Houston Texans adds to the appeal of the 49ers’ quarterback situation entering the offseason. Although there are no reports that the Texan offered the 25-year-old quarterback to participate in the trade, and Watson did not make any public transaction requests, discussions about his potential move have replaced discussions about the San Francisco offseason.
The legendary 49ers WR Jerry Rice joined the “Morning Roast” at the 95.7 game in San Francisco on Monday and talked about the 49ers might succumb to Watsons.
Rice said: “It all starts with the quarterback.”
When asked how much he was willing to give up in the trade, Rice (in the game with the San Francisco Hall of Fame quarterback) emphasized the importance of this position.
Rice said: “The quarterback is the most important part of the puzzle.” “If you don’t have a quarterback, then you won’t win. You will build a dynasty near that quarterback. So, how much money? I don’t. I know, but if we have the opportunity to introduce a player with this quality, we have to think about it, because now players are playing in a completely different direction. The quarterback is getting more and more flexible, able to get out of trouble and expand the scope of the game. , And still be able to pass the ball to the low post. You must now have a mobile quarterback. So I don’t know what is too much, but if we have a chance to have a player of his size, we must work hard.
Rice’s view is hard to argue. The NFL is now a quarterback-driven league, so finding franchise callers is the number one priority for every team. If fewer talents occupy the position, the right players in the position can cover up many warts.
If Watson can make a deal and Rice is correct, then San Francisco should make every effort to bring him to Santa Clara.
