Deshaun Watson: It’s “Very Important” To Bring Will Fuller Back

By Ari Meirov

The Texans signed Deshaun Watson and Laremy Tunsil to mega contracts last offseason but traded DeAndre Hopkins because he wanted an upgraded contract despite having three years left on his deal.

The Texans offense has not been as lethal with Hopkins out but one player who did step up was Will Fuller.

Fuller, who is in the final year of his rookie contract, has 53 receptions for 879 yards and 8 touchdowns in 11 games this season.

He was slapped with a 6 game suspension on Monday for violating the league’s PED policy, but if Watson has his way, the Texans will find a way to bring Fuller back.

“That’s very important,” Watson said. “That’s definitely one guy that I’m going to be working on this last month and offseason, for sure.”

“We all love him,” Watson said. “It’s one slip-up and he got popped. Will’s my brother. The whole organization knows that too. And you know, make sure that we get him back for next year, especially in this organization.”

Fuller’s suspension means he won’t return this season and he’ll also be out for the first game of 2021 season.

The Texans discussed trading Fuller before the trade deadline and the Packers were the one team showing the most interest. The asking price was reportedly too high for Green Bay so no deal got done.

Watson said at the time that “it would have been hell” if the team traded Fuller.

What the Texans end up doing with Fuller will be decided by the next Texans general manager. Jack Easterby is currently running the operation but owner Cal McNair made it clear that someone else will be hired once the season comes to an end.
