Houston Texans made an offer to Will Fuller ahead of the November 3 trading deadline but ultimately found no deal that worked for them, with interim head coach Romeo Crennel saying that the speed-playing midfielder will don’t trade “for peanuts.”
If Fuller was traded, it wouldn’t be good for Texas’ most important player: midfielder Deshaun Watson.
“It would be hell if they did it,” Watson said. “Honestly. I’m happy to continue playing with Will. We’ve made a lot of big, big plays since I came to this tournament, [and we’re] will continue to do that as we go on for the rest of this year and hopefully the rest of our career. “
Fuller and Watson̵7;s impressive chemistry was shown on Sunday in Texas’ 27-25 win over Jacksonville Jaguars. Watson’s trust in Fuller led to a touch of the ball at 77 yards, in which the midfielder sent the ball to the right-hand side and trusted his assistants to do it. Fuller did, as he used to when the two tried to connect for a big play.
Sunday marks the sixth consecutive game in which Fuller has caught a touch. According to research by ESPN Stats & Information, Fuller’s streak is the longest of the season and the longest streak of any player since Antonio Brown caught a touch pass in eight consecutive games in 2018. .
Fuller, who is playing on his fifth year option, says it’s “really tempting” to be “shopping like that”.
“Just dedicating himself to this organization, coming to work every day, a very unselfish player, doing everything they ask for, and then, just to be shopping around … I have felt some sort, “said Fuller. “But like I said, I’m very happy to be here. I’m very happy to be able to play with Deshaun and keep trying to win with this organization.”
When the pending freester was asked if he wanted to stay in Houston, he said, “I just focus on staying healthy and helping my team win.”
Mid-season, Fuller had 36 catches within 590 yards and six touches. He has had more touches this year than he has in the last two seasons.
Watson and Fuller enjoyed great success on the pitch together, but Fuller has faced injury throughout his NFL career, missing 22 games in his first four seasons. Fuller has played in all eight Texans games this season.
Finally, interim head coach Romeo Crennel stressed that although the Texans would listen to commercial offers, he was not interested in letting Fuller or any other player go buy “peanuts”. . After Fuller caught five passes in 100 yards and one touch the ball on Sunday, Crennel reiterated his view of only trading the receiver for a “luxury package”.
“I think today we saw why I only bought premium nuts for Will Fuller,” says Crennel. “Because he makes great games, he’s a great athlete, a great receptive and I’m happy we have him.”
