James Harden forced his way out of Houston and it looks like Deshaun Watson is about to, as well. The relationship between Watson and the front office of the Texans has rapidly deteriorated this offseason, stemming from the organization’s initial refusal to even interview coach and GM candidates Watson wanted involved in the search after promising he would be involved in the conversation.
