Deshaun Watson wants to join the Denver Broncos, former teammate Kareem Jackson said on a podcast.
Watson requested a trade from the Houston Texans before multiple lawsuits alleging sexual assault and inappropriate behavior were filed against the quarterback.
\"I\'ve got a great relationship with Deshaun,\" Jackson, who plays for the Broncos, told former NFL player Aqib Talib on his \"Catchin\' Fades\" podcast. \"I\'ve been talking to him the last couple of weeks, man, and like, all he\'s been telling me is like, \'Jack, just tell \'em, like, that\'s where I want to be.\' ... He\'s like, \'I want to be in Denver.\'\"
Watson is scheduled to make $10.5 million in 2021 on the fifth-year option of his rookie contract. Because of the contract extension he signed in September 2020, Watson\'s salary jumps to $35 million in 2022.
