The New Orleans Saints are still in the running to land quarterback Deshaun Watson. He met with both the Saints and Panthers on Monday and is talking with the Browns on Tuesday, per sources.

It’s looking like these three teams are the ones competing to land Watson and if it’s the Saints who end up getting the former first-round pick, what kind of trade packages can we expect them to have to put together to make the deal happen?

Let’s take a look at three potential trade packages for Deshaun Watson.

Three first-round picks seems to be the starting point for Watson so that’s going to be included in all three trade packages. In this one, New Orleans also parts ways with a second-round pick for this year and former first-rounder Marcus Davenport.

The reason why Davenport could be on the Texans’ radar is that he’s a young player who is still on his rookie deal. He had three slow seasons to start his NFL career but exploded onto the scene this past season, totaling nine sacks through 11 games.

Losing Davenport would suck, no doubt, but he has battled injuries throughout the course of his career. The injury issues could make him less intriguing to Houston but when he was on the field in 2022, he made the most of it.
