How Much Would The Bucs Give Up For Deshaun Watson?

March 11th, 2022

“Hey Glazer, pipe down. I got this.”

Creepy, massage-loving quarterback Deshaun Watson is one hell of a young but experienced quarterback.

But how much is too much for Tampa Bay to trade to acquire him in a competitive marketplace?

Joe suspects the Bucs would have to cough up three first-round draft picks and a second-rounder for Watson. Or maybe three first-rounders and a top-shelf player.

Is it worth it? Joe knows acquiring a 27-year-old Pro Bowl quarterback under a long-term contract is a wise reason to retool your roster. But it still comes with a price.

Let’s pretend Watson, who today learned he will not face criminal charges for various accusations of sexual misconduct, rejects a trade to Carolina (a team with more draft capital to trade) and he wants to come to Tampa. And say the Bucs give Houston three first-rounders and Lavonte David.

So then what? Watson would arrive and the salary-cap-challenged Bucs would have to fit in his roughly $35 million salary and try to keep their offensive line intact to protect their asset.

They’d have just about no cash to keep their many other free agents and wouldn’t have a first-round pick to fortify them in the 2022 NFL Draft.

One would then have to expect 2022 to be a challenging season as general manager Jason Licht remakes the team to position a run in 2023 and 2024.

Joe is not against the deal, but damn, it still would be hard to swallow the 2022 roster and whatever its ceiling might be — a max of 10 wins? Maybe?

    I’m sure Deshaun Watson will be “groping” for answers too.

  2. Dew Says:

    Many fans to start with

  3. Oddball Says:

    Too early? Naw..

  4. SaintsFan59 Says:

    A creepy massage loving QB would fit right in with the Yuckaneers. Eeew!

  5. THETRUTH Says:

    Why do you add levante David ? Send trask cause he won’t see field if Watson qb for next 5-7 years

  6. Adrnagy Says:

    Send shaq , trask 2 1st

  7. Buc92’ Says:

    Get err Done at all costs… the rest will fall in place , what good is a star player with no qb … it starts & ends with qb play


  8. Ben the GA Buc Says:

    I would suspect all most Buc fans want is for the team to continue to show it will make the best, bold moves it can to keep the team winning. The Glazers have to know we’re a bit spoiled now, QB-wise, so we need to have someone under center who can make things happen.

    I think there are only a few untouchables on offense: Evans, Godwin, Wirfs. On defense it would be Vea, Devin, Winfield and Whitehead.

    The rest: trade who you need to in order to get the deal done.

  9. sasquatch Says:

    It would cost too much… Putting aside the issue of predatory behavior for the moment, his salary would make it impossible to keep the roster well stocked at other positions through free agency, and the surrendering of draft picks would cripple the ability to stock the team with less expensive top level talent through the draft… I call the Watson idea a lose-lose-lose for us. If you want Watson because you think it will make you a Superbowl team, it will backfire. For a team in a better cap position with younger talent on first contracts, Watson makes more sense. Plus, he’s a creep.

  10. Rob Says:

    Trade for Watson, give up a couple of first rounders. Be sure now, if the Bucs sign Watson, Brady will come out of retirement. Get at least two first rounders for Brady from the 49ers. We will have to give up more than two first rounders, possibly a third first rounder or a couple of second rounders but Brady will get some picks back and Watson will play for several years. Go Bucs!

    For sure, I would think Trask would be in the trade if it were to happen.

    At that point, I could care less. Maybe at that point we can get some 1st rounders back.

  14. sasquatch Says:

    Trading Lavonte David is a disgraceful, morally depraved, ridiculous idea. It would send a message that TB will dump high-character, committed team players (who have sacrificed for the organization) for scumbags. Awful idea. #stooopid

  15. Allbuccedup Says:

    Send Shaq and Brate 2 first rounders 2 second rounders and renegotiate Watsons contract to 30 mil a year and a lifetime membership to Mons Venus.

  16. Elita Vita Says:

    We have proven to ourselves and other teams that not having an excellent quarterback is a way to cultivating a den of depression. So we need to start there. Get Desauhn in place and grow from there.

  17. RottenAmiigo Says:

    Peanuts it better be peanuts. If anything make Houston pay his salary for another year. Bring down the asking price and I’ll take it seriously. No way is that clown worth a first rounder. I don’t care how good he is. Gives me a migraine thinking about it

  18. Bird Says:

    Get mons venus , space odyssey and other legendary tampa establishments to offer free tension releases during his time here.

    Deal will be done tonight

  19. sasquatch Says:

    Trading Watson would set this team back a few years. It would not equal winning.

  20. Eric Says:

    If Brady proved anything its the importance of the QB position.

    Watson is elite.

    Do it.

  21. Allbuccedup Says:

    Wonder if they sign Watson is Arians still going to block Brady from going to the 49ers.

  22. Anonymous Says:

    Don’t be the old Bucs and settle for mediocre while wasting years away. GO GET HIM!!!

  23. Wesley Says:

    Don’t be the old Bucs and settle for mediocre while wasting years away. GO GET HIM!!

  24. HC Grover Says:

    We have run hard aground at high tide on a full moon.

  25. Adrnagy Says:

    Watson has to approve any trades. He decides where he wants to go.
    Its all about connections right now.

    Caserio and licht worked together.

  26. Adrnagy Says:

    Arians was ready to draft watson in arizona.

  27. HC Grover Says:

    The only hope is that BL is cooking up a 55 million deal for Brady…to be announced. 5 mil better than Rogers got.

  28. New England Patriots Fan Says:

    trade Brady to recoup a 1st

  29. Tye Says:

    Watson is a quitter…. refused to play for the team the moment he was unhappy…
    Hopefully, the Bucs are wise enough not to give up anything for him…

  30. New England Patriots Fan Says:

    will cost minimum the value of Wilson who had no trade clause also and wanted to leave.

    2 first 2 seconds 2-3 players one being good and 40m cap space.

    have to keep weapons and o line for Watson to want to player here. Trade defensive stars.

  31. tampabuscsbro Says:

    Tye difference is his team directly lied to him…a lot. He was frustrated with the team having an awful year (he played great his team had zero defense at all).

    Owners to appease him told him he would have input on the coaching and GM decision. He wasn’t given any. We don’t know what else happened to get us here.

  32. iamrhenry Says:

    Do we really want to see that guys face on the side of Rayjay? The most I would give up is this years first and Chris Godwin for Watson and their second.

  33. Allbuccedup Says:

    Would the bucs have to take all the 42 mil cap hit or the 24 mil which spotrac says houston would save?

  34. firethecannons Says:

    Make the deal for Watson we have Evans and Godwin maybe DWat refinagle his salary! No! to blaine gabbert yes to kyle trask as #1 backup

  35. sasquatch Says:

    Watson would
    1) Cripple the cap
    2) Make it impossible to afford free agents
    3) Take away draft picks needed to restock roster

    So, your ability to add talent through free agency or the draft is handcuffed. Great idea.

    This idea is insane.

  36. sasquatch Says:

    Sorry, especially at the QB position (the leader of your team), character actually matters. He’s a punk.

  37. SKBucsFan Says:

    The Bucs would have to give up too much. Hard pass.

  39. Brad Says:

    He’s won with much less than our roster. Every year. Lets not turn up our nose at 10 wins. Would’ve been a miracle 2 years ago.

  40. Crickett Baker Says:

    AdamSchefter? He just twittered about a quarterback that I have tried to mention on this site 3 times. Each time my comments were not posted. I asked why and no one answered, and they may not post this. But imo the IDEAL candidate to try for our QB is C.K.

  41. Dewey Selmon Says:

    We going from America’s Groper to the GOAT to Deshaun “Happy Endings” Watson. He’s going to feel right at home in Tampa lmao.

  42. Crickett Baker Says:

    Our last President had him fired from the NFL in an action that I found deplorable. Perhaps our current one would not uphold that, now.

  43. Topdoggie Says:

    It would be the first time since 1988 that I didn’t watch a single bucs game.

  44. Marine Buc Says:

    What would the Bucs pay for Watson?

    Two first round picks, one second round pick, Kyle Trask and C. Godwin.

    I’m not saying the Bucs should make this trade.

    I am merely answering the question…

    Look at what Denver just gave up for Wilson.

  45. Cobraboy Says:

    How to destroy team morale: trade a solid citizen like David for a borderline degenerate like Watson.

    It’s a nice fantasy about trading for Watson, but that would destroy the team for years.

    Watson is like me leasing a new Ferrari Enzo: that $7500mo. payment means I could hardly spend money on anything else…

  46. HC Grover Says:

    Might bring AB back too. What a duo.

  47. Jim Says:

    The Bucs can use the draft capital they make on a Brady trade. Sounds reasonable to me.

  48. uhmmm Says:

    The glazers would definitely be willing to give Watson a handy..

  49. Joe in Michigan Says:

    Patriots Fan: What is the purpose of posting on a Bucs fan site when you obviously don’t give a sh!t about the Bucs? Do you think Jason Licht will see your post and think “Well, I better do what Patriots Fan tells me, even though he doesn’t give AF about the Bucs”? If Brady comes back, it’ll be with the Bucs. Bruce Arians and Jason Licht have already said it.

  50. TDTB2022 Says:

    To many holes in offense and defense to roll the dice with Watson.

  51. Zwak Says:

    WOW, Right back to being the old Bucs..

  52. Bird Says:

    Its been proven over and over again

    This guy has a quick release

  53. Jersey buc Says:

    F$&K it do it. Let’s get our QB for the next 10 years am down

  54. Erick Says:

    Bring him to Tampa!!!!

    Then Brady can come back and will be traded to Miami.

  55. Daddylonglegs Says:

    ABSOLUTELY NOT!! Would cripple our cap even more than it already is. Wouldn’t be able to retain or sign quality free agents. Trade away future first round picks that will hurt the future of the organization. I don’t care how great of a quarterback you have, but if you don’t have pieces around him to be successful….. what’s the point. Keep your picks, keep your cap and sign quality free agents. Too many holes and questions on this roster this offseason to go trading way your future.

  56. RGA Says:

    Bucs would have to give up a kings ransom which would mortgage our future pipeline of college drafted talent. Watson’s cap hit would hinder if not squash the signing of any free agents including our own. Be careful what you wish for.

  57. Oxycodoms Says:

    Whats the point of signing godwin if cant afford a qb like watson

  58. BUCman Says:

    Crickett Baker: Did you really suggest C.K.???? Please call an ambulance immediately! I think you must have hit your head on something and are delirious!!! No wonder they didn’t post that! That is offensive language to the highest level! Good luck I hope your okay! I’m really worried about you!

  59. Rod Munch Says:

    I figure you’re giving up at least 2 first rounders, a 2nd and a 3rd and a top young player, who I’d make Vita, who only a part time player anyways and a lot more disposable than the other top young players, White, Wirfs and Winfield.

    The Bucs would HAVE to give up a young player because their 1st round pick is so late, and if Watson is playing next year, again, you’d figure they’d be picking late – other teams would be giving up early 1sts which count, basically as multiple late round 1sts.

    FYI: If you think that is too much to give up for a top 5 QB for the next decade, you are what is called an idiot, and your opinion is stupid.

  60. Erick Says:

    People who don’t want him because they think he will ruin salty cap are just foolish. Cap space can be manipulated so easily. I’m sure the Chiefs are really going to struggle next year with Mahomes making $40+ million. Watch the Bills go 7-10 because Allen is taking up so much cap space.

    Not wanting him because he is handsy is understandable, but you fools would rather have Trask be QB because of his contract. Sad and foolish.

    New take:

    3-way trade:

    1. Bucs get Watson > send rights to Brady to 49ers + two 1sts to Texans
    2. 49ers get Brady > send 1st to Texans
    3. Texans get three 1sts > send Watson to Tampa

    3. Texans get three 1sts > send Watson to Tampa

  65. New England Patriots Fan Says:

    Watson deal is cheap and he’s a top 5 QB. He’s got personal issues so I can see steering clear. But for a chance to win in next two seasons I’d take Watson over Wilson. I just wonder if Tampa has the draft capital to get him.

    My QB rank assuming Tom is on 49ers


    Go to this Twitter account called @BradyToThe49ers
    To see a very Brady Twitter quality hype video from an anonymous account that really seems to be coming from the Brady camp.

    He wants to play for 49ers trade him and use ammo to get Watson

  66. SPARKY Says:

    Bird, yep 22 times

  67. Mike Johnson Says:

    2 1st rders, a third and one player ought to do it. Sign the man!

  68. Jamar Dupree Says:

    Mr Licht, don’t get off the phone until a deal is done!! I don’t give a damn if it take 4 number 1s. Get DW4 in the building and will worry about the rest later. Ladies and Gents we still got the rights to brady. If we cut a deal with the 49ers we can get something nice back.

  69. RGA Says:

    The only thing that could work in the Bucs favor is the no trade clause, meaning Watson dictates who he plays for. He sees the Bucs have two stellar wide receivers in Godwin and Evans to throw to. Houston has to settle for a less then valued draft pick compensation. Watson is signed outright with out a no trade clause. Watson will be suspended for 4 to 6 games giving Trask his opportunity to show what he can do. If Trask shows he is the Bucs QB of the future, then the Bucs have a huge asset in Watson to trade for a kings Radom.

  70. sasquatch Says:

    Brady is retired. He’s not coming back to the NFL unless he says so explicitly and publicly. Every rumor entertained in between is a waste of braincells.

  71. Erick Says:

    “Brady is retired” lol

  72. Anonymous Says:

    Lol. Thank goodness you’re not the gm joe. Guys in deep crap and hasn’t really played great. The qb whisperer needs to earn his money this year with a free agent qb, Trask, or a draft pick.

  73. Bucs Guy Says:

    If you have to trade a player, trade Godwin.

  74. Erick Says:

    I think the Bucs should offer White in trade. Not sure he will ever play as consistent the way he did during Super Bowl run. I would much rather keep Winfield, as mentioned by Joe in an earlier post.

  75. cmurda Says:

    Creepy massage allegations or not, Deshaun is about to fetch a pretty penny in draft capital for Houston.

  76. Slacknuts Says:

    I’d wait for Trubisky. He’s a future pro bowler in this offense. Dangerous dual threat guy

  77. Rod Munch Says:

    Bucs Guy Says:
    March 11th, 2022 at 7:44 pm
    If you have to trade a player, trade Godwin.


    Godwin isn’t even under contract, he hasn’t signed his franchise tag – plus with no deal in place, he’s not worth much.

    The team only has a few players that anyone would want, when you account for age and contract, and that’s the 4 I listed. Evans would have some value too to a win-now team, but the Bucs aren’t getting rid of him. Trask isn’t worth much to the Texans who took Mills a few picks later and looked pretty good (I had Mills as the guy the Bucs should take if they insisted on taking a QB in that spot).

    Basically for someone to have value they need to have more than one-year of control by the team.

    Also what would be the point of getting Watson, then crippling your offense by not having a 2nd WR option. You need at LEAST 3 WRs in the NFL, so if anything, the Bucs should be trying to add someone there as well.

    Including Vita is by far the least painful route to go. He’s a part time player, primarily a run stuffer, and the Bucs have played a lot of games without him. He’s a very good player, which is why he has trade value, but on the Bucs, out of the young guns with any value, he’s the first off my list. Winfield would be the other option, but I’m not giving up a full-time future all-pro who should be here for a very long time.

  78. Jeff Says:

    Trade Vea and Shaq away in a second for him. Watson is the REAL DEAL.

  83. Pewter Power Says:

    Damn Jeff 🤣🤣🤣🤣

    Wanna clue us in on why you would fit the defensive line but think we could compete because we have Watson?

  84. T REX Says:

    Nothing. Not even a can of MGD.

    He’ll never be a Buc. Ever.

  85. gp Says:

    Will we ever learn????

  86. Anonymous Says:

    The team fals apart without a qb. If you miss one one of those picks and another gets hurt in a few years what did you really miss out on? You probably waste theother ones career without a good qb too.

  87. Buc4evr Says:

    After Brady and what he taught the Bucs and the fans, why in God’s name would we trade anything for that degenerate. This guy makes Jameis look like a Boy Scout. I’d rather start Trask or Gabbert and see if we can win, if not trade for a proven veteran next year.

  88. Niles Says:

    To beef up our running game we should get OJ Simpson.

  89. steele Says:

    The answer should be nothing. He isn’t worth a thing. Even before his 22 lewd acts. A mediocre QB.

  90. steele Says:

    Joe, maybe you should ask what the Bucs would give up for Minshew Mania. It’s looking that ugly.

  91. Eric Says:

    Amazingly some of the Watson hate isnt influenced by the fact the Grand Jury heard the facts and found no criminality.

    What do you people know that the Grand Jury didn’t? You continue to rely on an incomplete and very possibly erroneous media narrative.

    I don’t get it.

    Amazingly some of the Watson hate isnt influenced by the fact the Grand Jury heard the facts and found no criminality.

    The fact that there wasn’t any criminality technically found doesn’t mean he’s not a scumbag or a pr3dator. People with good lawyers get away with things all the time. I’m not down with giving up the farm and crippling the cap if there’s any doubt about the character of the player.

  93. LJS4th Says:

    This would ruin the Bucs for years!!! But we are used to the Yucaneers so whats the difference. Oh no we suck again!!!

  94. steele Says:

    Minshew is actually quite interesting as an option. In his limited starts, he’s performed well, despite crap teams. And his 2022 pricetag: just $2.5 mil. In addition to doing better than almost all of the horrible QBs on the free agent list (all of whom would cost far more, and more than they are worth), he has unrealized upside. He could do well with the Arians system.

    Bring that guy in, have him compete with Trask. It’s not headline grabbing, but it’s a cheap low risk bridge to next offseason, with potential to surprise.

    Same with Mike White. He had some spectacular games as a starter.

  95. RandsABucFan Says:

    I still entertain the thought of going after Mitch Trubisky. He would be relatively affordable compared to Watson and could use a change of scenery. He has a strong arm as long as we can protect him.

  96. Ash Says:

    Obviously they would restructure his contract long term deal to get what they need to roster a competitive team

  97. catcard202 Says:

    I’d trade for Watson & not flinch at the cost.

    You can overcome not having early round draft picks for few years…But it’s a hell of a lot harder to win in the NFL without a proven QB.

  98. BelleGladeBuc Says:

    A jury of Watson’s peers heard Watson’s case and determined that Watson committed no crime.

    If you’re not happy with that, then I guess you’re upset with a jury of Rittenhouse’s peers hearing Rittenhouse’s case and determining that Rittenhouse committed no crime.

    I’m happy with both outcomes because justice has been served as our criminal justice system when through the proper process and did its job in both cases.

    If you’re happy with one, and not the other when it comes to Rittenhouse’s case and Watson’s case, then you must ask yourself why.

  99. SOEbuc Says:

    NO!!! Start Trask. I thought we got him to learn from Brady in the first place? If anything, we can rebuild through the draft and eventually trade up for a top tier QB that we can hope is a Joe and not a Jameis.

  100. Rod Munch Says:

    SOEbuc – He learned from Brady? How? He was the 4th string QB who never even saw the practice field. I doubt Brady could pick him out of a line-up.

  101. Niles Says:

    “Eric Says:
    Amazingly some of the Watson hate isnt influenced by the fact the Grand Jury heard the facts and found no criminality.”

    Neither did OJ’s jury.

  102. Mord Says:

    The sasquatch comments make the most sense to me

    Plus, let’s say the Bucs give up three first round picks, a second, and maybe even throw in a Winfield/Vea type player to ice the cake.

    Then, the NFL suspends Watson for half the season or more, Trask starts in his absence and plays well enough to start a legitimate “quarterback controversy” on a team that now has no draft picks or cap room for the foreseeable future.

    Not good.

    I think the Bucs should continue to show interest. But they should be in this only to drive up the price for their division rivals and then sit back and watch *them* be hamstrung for the next several years

  103. Buccos Says:

    I would sign Watson. Brady quit on us. If he really wants to play for San Fran let him. But recoup a couple of draft picks for him in the process. 35 mil for Watson ain’t bad. Only $10 mil more than Brady got but 15 mil less than Rodgers. I would rather have Watson than Rodgers. Younger and a higher ceiling and probably less of a choker. Better than Russell Wilson too.

  104. Eric Says:

    the Grand Jury only has to find probable cause to charge, totally different that a jury trial at the end. It is an incredibly easy standard to meet yet not a single charge, not even a misdemeanor.

    Its telling and should cause serious questions about the seriousness over what Watson allegedly did.

  105. Eric Says:


    Defense lawyers don’t appear when a Grand Jury convenes. Just the State.

    So it could not have been fancy lawyering.

  106. Reddington Neck Shores Says:

    deshaun “kennedy&dale mabry” watson has a nice ring. i bet he could sign an endorsement with theeee doll house

  107. New England Patriots Fan Says:

    The key piece in this trade is Brady. He must be moved. No one in the NFL thinks he’s retired. He doesn’t even think he’s retired.

    There is a merry go round with QBs in the NFL which all main teams are moving QBs for net zero in the end. Rodgers started it as he stayed, Wilson moved, Wentz moved, Wash got Wentz, Colts wants Jimmy, 49ers want Brady, Houston wants to trade Watson, Tampa wants to move Brady, Tampa wants Watson/Cousins, Viking want to move Cousins, Carolina needs a QB, Saints want a QB, Atlanta wants to move Matt, Pitts needs a QB they want Watson/Cousins/Malik, Seattle has the trade capital for a QB they want Watson, someone will draft Picket and Malik, it will all settle by the draft.

    It’s just a massive QB movement event as 8 new coaches were hired and 4 HOF QBs retired since 2021 so teams want their QBs.

  108. BelleGladeBuc Says:


    You’re right.

    It’s an extremely low bar for the PA to attain a misdemeanor charge before a grand jury as it’s just the PA, the PA’s evidence and the grand jury.

    Extremely telling about the case the state had.

    Criminal cases like this that take more than a year to be begin definitely do not meet the US Constitutional 6th Amendment guaranteeing Americans the right to a speedy trial.

    Makes you wonder why?

    It’s poll is either fake or this is the worse fan base in the league. 71% in favor of trading for this guy? Disgusting.

    If you don’t like Watson because you feel he is guilty even though he hasn’t been charged with any crimes fine. Please don’t showcase your lack of understanding of football by saying Watson is average, mediocre, or anything close to that.

    Over the course of his career Watson has either very close or better stats than Tom Brady for the same time period. Watson is currently the all time leader in completion percent, fifth or something in TD to INT ratio, and third in rating. If Watson continues on this path, which he should especially on a much better team with the Bucs than he had with the Texans, you are saying you don’t want a guy who is projecting out to be one of the greatest QBs ever.

    I also don’t understand the complaints about the cap. Other teams have elite QBs who get paid and they manage to field teams just fine.

    If we take the L for next season we free cap n get a top 16 draft pick. Scout the qbs in the draft class n make our decision. This draft we can grab guys to fill the players we lost. Rb te cb oline dline. Next draft qb oline dline wr with free agent additions. We would be able to afford our own resignings too. Get back into playoff form. 1 year set back as opposed to 3 or 4 years with guys like lavonte and evans who are reaching olf status in football terms

    Texas will want: White, Godwin, Trask, 2x 1st

    Pleading the 5th is using the Constitutional Right that Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, John Adams, Ben Franklin, John Madison, and all of the other Founding Fathers said was essential to prevent government abuse.

    Using your US Constitution 5th Amendment Rights that our Founding Fathers provided for all Americans doesn’t make an individual like Deshaun Watson a bad person. It makes a person like Deshaun Watson an American.
