New Houston Texans quarterback Tyrod Taylor insists he has a great relationship with Deshaun Watson.
Watson reported to Texans’ training camp but his desire to get traded hasn’t changed.
However, Taylor insists Watson hasn’t been a distraction so far and he has been helping him to learn the Texans offense.
“Me and Deshaun are friends,” Taylor said, per ESPN. “We’ve known each other for a number of years now. We’ve had conversations on the field, off the field. Non-football, about life. Everything has been positive conversations and they’ll continue to be that way.”
Watson’s future in Houston remains uncertain and there is a chance Taylor will be Week 1 starter.
“My mindset has been the same since I was drafted back in 2011,” Taylor said. “To walk in every day with your best attitude, compete, prepare like a starter and go out and make plays.”
