Fowler additionally asked about the New York Jets and also Miami Dolphins given that both teams have a great deal of draft funding, yet stated Watson isn’t as curious about the Jets as the various other 3 groups.
The 49ers have $13.4 million in available cap space (per Over The Cap) as well as have the 12th overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft– along with first-round choices each year after that. The Broncos have $32 million in offered cap area and also have the No. 9 general choice in the 2021 draft. Denver likewise has a first-round pick every year afterwards. The Broncos appear to have even more utilize when it concerns a potential Watson profession.
This isn’t the very first time Watson has actually meant Denver over the previous week. Broncos defensive back Kareem Jackson, that spent two seasons with Watson in Houston, stated Watson has an interest in betting the Broncos. Denver has an abundance of pass receivers in Jerry Jeudy, Courtland Sutton, KJ Hamler, Tim Patrick, and DaeSean Hamilton. The Broncos additionally have Melvin Gordon at running back for 2021 as well as Noah Fant at tight end with a boosting offensive line– so there’s a lot of factor for Watson to be interested.
Watson wouldn’t have to bring the 49ers offense either with the way Kyle Shanahan coordinates the zone-blocking plan as well as likes the run. He would be an instantaneous upgrade over Jimmy Garoppolo, as the 49ers can conserve a lot more cap room by leaving his contract this year ($ 23 million in cap alleviation).
The Jets have two first-round choices( No. 2, No. 23) and 2 third-round picks this year. They also have two first-round choices in 2022. The Dolphins have 2 first-round picks (No. 3, No. 18) and two second-round choices this year, together with a first-round pick next year and also in 2023.
