The latest developments in the sexual assault cases against Deshaun Watson are that the cases are likely to extend well into the 2021 season.

While he hasn't been suspended by the NFL yet, the cases extending well into the season would make it highly unlikely that he will see the field next season.

From ESPN:

The Deshaun Watson case has entered into discovery, which could play out well into the 2021 regular season, with depositions set to begin in September.

The 22 women who are suing the Houston Texans quarterback for alleged sexual assault would be deposed before Watson, who's not scheduled until early 2022, Watson's attorney, Rusty Hardin, said Tuesday.

According to the docket for the case, Watson can't be deposed before Feb. 22, 2022.

The Texans are starting to prepare for life without their star quarterback even beyond this season.  Trading Watson right would take an absolute miracle.

The only guy I could see making a move like this already has a franchise quarterback.
