News that the Atlanta Falcons are planning to meet with Deshaun Watson has inspired Doug Gottlieb to reconsider how this whole trade scenario might play out with the Houston Texans. Doug thinks the Falcons are the ideal spot for Watson who is from Georgia and was likely a huge Michael Vick fan growing up. And they have a fan base that will embrace Watson despite his legal entanglements. The parallels are hard to ignore and it would give the Falcons a real shot to supplant the Buccaneers at the top of the NFC South.

Doug Gottlieb: “The Atlanta Falcons, having been the home to Mike Vick and could be the home to Deshaun Watson...they’re different than the rest of the pool of candidates. They have something that nobody else could match; they have the Mike Vick experience.”
