More than one month into the NFL offseason, and the No. 1 topic of discussion remains the future of Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson.

The standoff between Watson and the Texans remains ongoing, as the team hasn’t really shown any signs it is willing to trade the franchise signal caller. Nevertheless, multiple teams are showing interest in acquiring the 25-year-old star.

Antonio Brown couldn’t save Tom Brady, Bucs

The warning bells that had been flashing on Tampa Bay’s dashboard of late turned an engine billowing smoke as all four tires flattened.

The Buccaneers were winning, but the rattles were real. Tom Brady all but signaled it when he not only pressed for the signing of troubled wideout Antonio Brown, but he let him move into his house. TB12 knew they needed help. The call was coming from the inside. 

On Sunday, it became apparent to everyone. 

New Orleans 38, Tampa 3, the worst beatdown of Brady’s two decade-plus NFL career. It may have been even uglier than that. Only a late fourth-quarter field goal saved the Bucs from the embarrassment of a shutout. It was something out of the New York Jets’ playbook … or Tampa’s during its many lost seasons. 

It certainly wasn’t something you see from Super Bowl champions, which is all that Brady
