This Deshaun Watson 3-way trade makes too much sense for the Falcons
Who knew the biggest news today would not be something to do with free agency, but rather the Atlanta Falcons having interest in a star quarterback who is looking to be traded.
With Matt Ryan likely being a trade candidate if the Falcons do trade for Watson, there is a three-way trade that makes so much sense for each player being involved in the trade.
The Falcons should pull off this blockbuster, three-way trade
As mentioned above, if the Atlanta Falcons do decide to pursue Deshaun Watson, Matt Ryan is as good as gone. He would need to be involved in his own trade or be a part of the Watson trade.
The issue is that Matt Ryan has a no-trade clause in his deal, much like Watson. It is doubtful that Matt would waive the clause to become a member of the Texans. He is in the latter stages of his career and would likely prefer not to go to a team in the middle of a rebuild—even if he is already on a team in the same situation.
So, why not throw another team into the mix? The Philadelphia Eagles.
Matt Ryan is originally from Pennsylvania, so he would probably want to become a member of the Eagles, so he can be close to home.
If Matt becomes an Eagle, that would mean Jalen Hurts would be on his way out. Guess where Hurts is from? Houston Texas.
Then you would have Watson becoming an Atlanta Falcon and he is originally from Atlanta.
That would mean you have three quarterbacks being traded to their home state, it makes way too much sense.
Of course, the Eagles would have to want Matt Ryan, and who knows if they would. They have been in on a lot of talks for other quarterbacks who want to or have been traded in the past.
Overall, do not be surprised if you see a blockbuster deal involving these three teams, it is a weird coincidence, to say the least.
