Deshaun Watson trade rumors: Kareem Jackson says Texans QB wants to join Broncos

As the Broncos continue to find themselves linked to the top quarterbacks on the trade market, one has reportedly expressed interest in coming to Denver. 

Broncos safety Kareem Jackson told former Denver cornerback Aqib Talib on Talib's podcast, “Catchin' Fades,” that Watson told him Denver is “where I want to be.”

“He like, 'I want to be in Denver,'” Jackson said on the podcast.

Watson has been the subject of trade rumors all offseason, even as he's been accused of inappropriate contact and sexual assault in more than 20 civil lawsuits filed this year. 

Watson has denied the accusations while his lawyer, Rusty Hardin, has worked to discredit the accusations set against the quarterback. Prior to the allegations, the Texans had reportedly been approached by eight different teams asking about him.

NFL Network reporter Ian Rapaport said on Twitter that while Denver is one possible spot, he did not believe Watson wanted to be there. He did note that Watson has been recruited by former teammates and other NFL players. 

During Jackson's interview with Talib, he said while he was going through his own free agent process, he was asked by Watson where he would sign. When he eventually made the decision to resign with Denver, Jackson said that Watson told him to tell the team he wanted to join the Broncos. 

Talib began the segment by saying he thought Denver would have Watson as the quarterback and said that he sees “the setup. The line straight.” 

Denver had been linked to Watson before the accusations emerged this offseason and before signing quarterback Teddy Bridgewater. Last season, Drew Lock started the majority of games for the Broncos under center as the overall group was arguably the worst in the NFL, ranking last in team QBR (72.5), 26th in passing yards (3,451), 25th in passing touchdowns (21) and finished with the most interceptions at 23. 

The Broncos have remained in the conversation as a possible destination for Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers if he is dealt from Green Bay.
