Deshaun Watson added yet another layer of intrigue to the trade rumors that surround him and the Texans.
The Houston quarterback on Friday tweeted that he “was on 2 then I took it to 10” — a nod to a Sunday report from ESPN’s Adam Schefter regarding his anger level with the organization now vs. when it traded receiver DeAndre Hopkins.
I was on 2 then I took it to 10

Shortly after his original tweet, Watson followed up with another: “Future – Mo Reala vibes!”
That song — by artist Zaytoven and featuring Future — contains the same line of lyrics: “I was on a 2 then I took it to 10.”
Those simple-yet-multifaceted couple of tweets sent Twitter into a frenzy trying to disect their meaning. That’s especially true after rumors swirled that the fourth-year signal-caller would be open to a trade with Miami to get out of Houston. Watson is reportedly incensed with the organization, not only because of its hiring of general manager Nick Caserio — a Patriots product, much like the recently fired coach/GM Bill O’Brien — but also because it reportedly refused to consider Eric Bieniemy for the team’s open coaching position.
Here are some of the best reactions and jokes Watson stirred up:
I’m on Deshaun Watson’s side but he signed long term with a dysfunctional organization and is upset they are acting dysfunctionally.
