The Houston Texans may be preparing to move on from quarterback Deshaun Watson.
Over the weekend, the Texans used its first pick of the 2021 NFL Draft - the 67th overall selection - on Stanford quarterback Davis Mills.For a team with so many needs across the roster, using its first selection on a quarterback was quite a statement and seemed to indicate that Watson's time in Houston may be over.
Adam Schefter, an NFL insider at ESPN, said the Texans picking Mills fits into a belief held by some league sources that Watson has played his last game in Houston."The Texans used their first pick in the draft on a quarterback, the 67th overall selection," Schefter said. "They could say it's the best player on the board, or whatever they want, but the fact of the matter is, there are people in league circles who believe Deshaun Watson will not play this season. There are some people who believe his career in Houston is over, and the Texans know they face a tremendous amount of quarterback uncertainty, which is why they used the third-round pick on Davis Mills."

Mills joins the Texans quarterback room with Watson, Tyrod Taylor, and Ryan Finley. If Watson is done in Houston, there may be a competition for the starting job.
