Aaron Rodgers and Russell Wilson found their homes for the 2022 NFL season and beyond. Could Deshaun Watson be next?

We learned Friday the 26-year-old won’t face criminal charges stemming from sexual misconduct allegations that kept him off the field for the entire 2021 season.

Watson is currently in the midst of a four-year, $156 million contract he signed with the Texans in 2020. The next move involving the former Clemson standout will likely shake up the entire NFL landscape.

Check out the betting odds on which team he’ll suit up for next.

The Commanders were the previous favorites (+300) in DraftKings‘ market in late February.

However, Washington is now 250-1 in the same market, after recently acquiring Carson Wentz from the Colts.

The Seahawks make sense if they look to quickly reload on the fly.

Maxim sportsbook told Action Network it took a couple nibbles on Seattle 12/1 in the Watson market, perhaps boosted by NFL Insider Daniel Jeremiah linking the quarterback to the Seahawks in a recent podcast. The Seahawks are now 7-1 at that shop.

Plus, if Texans brass wants to send Watson away for good, the NFC West is a good place to start.

The Panthers, meanwhile, are also rumored to be in on Watson. One would hope Carolina would be looking for a decent quarterback?

Matt Rhule’s 10-23 record out the gates in Carolina can be traced back to brutal quarterback play. The Panthers were dead-last in team passer rating last season, months after hoping they’d found their savior in Sam Darnold.

Watson in a Panthers uniform immediately alters the trajectory of the NFC South, especially with the quarterback-needy Bucs listed as the favorites.

The Steelers could use a boost under center.

They didn’t land Rodgers or Wilson, and a quarterback room potentially headlined by Mason Rudolph and Dwayne Haskins doesn’t exactly inspire confidence post-Ben Roethlisberger.

Watson, Diontae Johnson, Chase Claypool and Najee Harris? That’s frightening.

However, who knows if they’re even serious about the pursuit.

If Watson remains with the Texans, bets at MGM will be voided.

At DraftKings, Watson currently is +150 to take the first snap of the season for Seattle, +700 for the Steelers and +900 for the Saints.
