Only if they throw in Hopkins, McKinney, and their 2017 1st. They can keep Clowney. It'd be ridiculous to expect them to throw that kind of talent in the deal.

It's a rumor that's picking up steam - Romo plus our 1st rounder for Watt. Imagine whst a healthy Watt would mean for our defense. Factor in Jaylon Smith as well. Doomsday revisited.
Before you criticise rumor and speculation is all I have to cling to right now

No, I wouldn't do it.


Methinks you might be serious Shocked


Totally serious. Two back injury's??? DL take a beating as well. And I disrespectfully with DaBoys. I don't think 6 to 9 years.

I have to imagine if the Texans are willing to trade the icon of their team - they are doing so because Watt isn't and likely will never be the same.

It's a huge risk. But so was drafting Smith. This story will change 100 times.

I couldn't imagine giving up a 1st rounder for Watt this year. Right now, Romo is healthy while JJ Watt remains a question mark. While Watt is younger he takes more punishment at DE.

What do you think of Romo + 2017 2nd + 2018 Conditional 2nd (can turn to a 1st) for JJ Watt?

Watt is a top 5 defensive player in this league, entering his prime. Yea he's had injuries, but there would be no shot the Texans would trade him for a 37 year old QB with an even more questionable injury history than Watt.

The Texans defense absolutely played well enough to beat the patriots. But, it's PAINFULLY obvious that they will not advance in the playoffs until they get a real QB. What is advancing in the playoffs worth? Under this hypothetical scenario, the Texans would have Romo and 2 first round picks. That's probably enough to elevate them into SB contenders.

Obviously I'm pro Cowboy and terribly biased which skews my judgement. However what price greatness for both the Texans and Cowboys? The Texans defense played extremely well without Watt. What is obvious is that the Texans need a QB badly. The Cowboys are in dire need of a difference maker on the DL. A healthy Watt is what we've been waiting for. The key is his health. Romo puts the Texans into serious contender status as Watt would for Dallas.

There's no need to get disrespectfully.

Right, but I can't see them moving a cornerstone player who is 27 for a QB who likely doesn't have more than a season left in his body. 1 more injury and he's most likely done.

Romo and 2 first round picks is overkill.

He's saying Houston would have two #1s. Theirs and Cowboy's
