BREAKING: Deshaun Watson has agreed to a trade to the Cleveland Browns

Written by Doug Rush

In a stunning turn of events, Deshaun Watson is taking his talent to Cleveland.

Watson has decided to change his mind and will accept a trade to the Cleveland Browns.

The Browns and Houston Texans will finalize the trade details, but Watson will agree to waive his No-trade clause to be sent to the Browns. 24 hours ago, he had informed Cleveland he wouldn’t go there.

The expectation was that either the Atlanta Falcons or New Orleans Saints were the finalists, but Watson clearly changed his mind.

With that said, the Browns will now have to work to trade Baker Mayfield, who will garner interest from teams around the league who need a quarterback.
