And this one won’t go over well with Jets fans hoping for a deal with the Houston Texans.

SNY’s Ralph Vacchiano reports that “according to a source who has spoken with people close to Watson, the 25-year-old quarterback doesn’t have the Jets at the top of his wish list.”

On top of that, NFL scout Matt Miller says “No disrespect to other reporters, but I’ve been told the Jets are NOT his preferred destination should a trade take place. His no-trade clause makes this very important.”

But there a silver lining here. Even though the Jets are not atop Watson’s trade wish list, New York is one of the teams to which he would accept a deal. Vacchiano reports “the Jets are one of them, the source said, because of Watson’s affection for new Jets coach Robert Saleh. But the Dolphins might be just as attractive, if not more, because of Watson’s respect for Dolphins coach Brian Flores, their young core of talent, and the fact that there’s no state income tax in Florida.”

Watson, a three-time Pro Bowl selection, is disgruntled after being frozen out on Houston’s decision-making process when the Texans hired general manager Nick Caserio and head coach David Culley.
