NFL Rumors: Surprising Team Enters Deshaun Watson Sweepstakes

According to Adam Schefter, the Atlanta Falcons are expressing interest in Deshaun Watson.

The Falcons now being in on Watson is extremely interesting, as they made it seem that they would continue to run with Matt Ryan as their starter. Yet, this interest in Watson shows that they are willing to explore other avenues if it means landing a legitimate star for the position. 

Watson would give the Falcons their successor to Ryan immediately. It already was established that they would begin searching for their future QB for when Ryan retires, but adding Watson would result in him of course becoming their starter.

It will be interesting to see what happens from here.
