Deshaun Watson was very honest about some of his interactions prior to the NFL draft.
in the entire NFL, over the last few years. He was drafted by the Houston Texans which is something that Chicago Bears fans still regret, to this day. Of course, this is because the Bears took Mitch Trubisky over both Watson and Super Bowl-winner Patrick Mahomes. Recently, the Bears made it clear that they wouldn’t pick up Trubisky’s fifth-year option which means his future in the league is in jeopardy.
On Twitter last night, a debate broke out about black quarterbacks and how some teams operate with prejudice. One journalist stated that the Bears did their due diligence with Watson and though Trubisky was better. Watson certainly disagreed with this notion as he took to Twitter to make it clear that the Bears never talked to him prior to his draft year.
As you can imagine, Twitter had a field day with this information as they immediately slandered the Bears from every angle. For a team to have dismissed Watson so openly is pretty shameful, especially when you consider the talent he displays every weekend.
If you’re a Bears fan, this information has to sting, especially since you now have to deal with Trubisky and an inconsistent Nick Foles.
