1. No-Trade Clause

Many fans have surely yelled that Watson has a no-trade clause and can go where he wants. If you have Bear Goggles On, that means you think he wants to come to Chicago. You can override the fact that Ryan Pace disrespected Watson pre-draft with a variety of factors. Watson likes Chicago, he would have a defense, etc.

The reality is that there are better spots to go than Chicago. You talk about Watson coming to play with a great defense, what great defense? The one giving up 30 points to Aaron Rodgers at will? The one where they would have to trim fat from to add Watson?

Sorry, Bears fans, the defense is not some strong calling card anymore. What about the offense? Ok, we can think Allen Robinson will come back with Watson. Still, as mentioned, other teams can add Robinson just as easily. Who else? Cole Kmet had a nice rookie season, but Watson is not forcing his way to play with him.

The Bears do not have a great line, they have questionable skill players and their defense is getting worse. Beyond that, they have to cut from these spots and lose any chance to improve their roster by trading for DeShaun Watson. You think Watson is going to demand a trade to go to that?

Next. Stay or Go: Sherrck McManis. dark

It is fun that Chicago Bears fans think their team has a chance, but Watson is very unlikely to have them at the top of his list.

Again, teams like Miami and New York can pay a lot more. Even New England, Carolina, and San Fran not only can pay more, but they also have more inviting landing spots. The Chicago Bears will give it their all but have a low chance at Watson.
