The San Francisco 49ers have been mentioned as one of the landing spots for Houston Texans starting quarterback Deshaun Watson. Houston continues to say they are not interested in moving their quarterback. The 49ers have a lot of talent on defense and Jimmy Garoppolo on offense.
The Houston Texans are not interested in Jimmy Garoppolo and it doesn't seem like any other team in the NFL is either. The 49ers will most likely part ways with Garoppolo this off-season after numerous trade attempts. If the San Francisco 49ers want to have a shot at Deshaun Watson, they will need to offer a great package.
There are three players on defense that the Houston Texans may want included in the trade for their franchise quarterback. Who are the three players that the Houston Texans will want for Deshaun Watson?
NFL Trade Rumors: Who are the three players that the Houston Texans will want for Deshaun Watson?
The San Francisco 49ers will need to put together an offer that cannot be refused. This could be a top defensive talent and picks. If the 49ers want to land Watson, they will need to beat out the Carolina Panthers offer of Christian McCaffrey.
1) 49ers defensive end Nick Bosa
Nick Bosa may be one of the players that the Houston Texans will want for their quarterback Deshaun Watson. With the Texans losing J.J. Watt this may be the best option for the 49ers. The problem is that Nick Bosa is most likely one of the untouchable players for the San Francisco 49ers.
2) 49ers defensive end Arik Armstead
Arik Armstead is the next player that the Houston Texans could want in the package for Deshaun Watson. Armstead will be the replacement for the Texans at the end position. The 49ers are more likely to agree to send Arik Armstead than Nick Bosa.
3) 49ers linebacker Fred Warner
Fred Warner is the final defensive player that the Houston Texans may want for Deshaun Watson. Warner has developed into one of the leaders for the 49ers defense. Receiving Fred Warner may not replace J.J. Watt but he definitely gives the Texans a big boost in defense.
The San Francisco 49ers could also give the Houston Texans a deal that brings Jimmy Garoppolo and another young talent like Dre Greenlaw. Garoppolo is not the feature in this deal, but he gives the Texans a QB if they cannot draft one that is able to start right away.
