Reports from Jay Glazer indicate Deshaun Watson could find his preferred destination as early as Wednesday night. At one point, the Falcons were considered dark horse candidates to land the former Clemson Tiger, but now, the feeling is the exact opposite. Jane Slater on NFL Free Agency Frenzy stated that Atlanta certainly seems like the front-runners at this point.

The Falcons being one of the last teams to express interest in Watson made them long shots, but as time has gone on, they’ve become one of the favorites to land him. What makes this all better (from a football standpoint) is the slew of free agents who are rumored to be waiting on Watson to make his decision to follow him to whichever team he chooses.
