Deshaun Watson officially wants out of Houston, and the New Orleans Saints need to at least toss a few potential offers their way.

The New Orleans Saints are going to be a franchise in limbo if Drew Brees retires. While it’s unknown what Drew Brees is going to do as of now, the most likely outcome is that he calls it a career.

After a three-interception game to send the Saints packing, Brees may not want to return. With Jameis Winston on the roster and an upcoming free agent, retaining him may be the move for Mickey Loomis and the Saints.

Now, the team also has the No. 28 pick in the draft and Taysom Hill locked up as well. What they do is a mystery for fans, but there’s one answer that could cost quite a bit but be worth it in the long run.

Deshaun Watson could be the answer.

According to ESPN, he’s officially requested a trade. Houston hasn’t produced the talent that Watson has needed to succeed, and after trading DeAndre Hopkins last offseason and a down season resulting in just four wins, they’ve driven their quarterback out of town.

The Saints could be a team interested in Watson if the price isn’t too steep. That said, let’s dive into five trades the team could propose for the three-time Pro Bowler.
