6. DeShaun Watson
The Houston Texans have had a miserable few seasons but one thing they did right was draft Watson. A genuine franchise quarterback, it looked like Watson would lead them forward to greatness. Then, they started trading all of his weapons and he wanted to leave. But the Texans star became embroiled in multiple sexual harassment scandals. Now he’s in danger of becoming the NFL’s most unwanted man.
It’s the most Houston story ever. Watson’s influence on the franchise was profound but he left them in an unenviable position. Nobody wanted to risk trading for him while he was under an active investigation. Meanwhile, the Texans didn’t want to play him because of the same situation (via Sporting News). It was unfortunate that such a great player created a situation where he was stuck on the sidelines and disgraced.
