All the teams interested in Deshaun Watson completed their presentations Wednesday, and many expect he will decide in 48-72 hours following the last meeting. For the Falcons, they needed the decision by Friday because Matt Ryan is due a $7.5 million roster bonus then. However, it seems Watson needs more time to decide. So, the Falcons elected to push that roster bonus date back four days.
Deshaun Watson currently expected to take next few days and contemplate his decision over weekend, per league sources, over which team he'll waive his no-trade clause for, and Falcons have pushed back Matt Ryan's $7.5 million roster bonus from Friday to Tuesday

It seems the race for Deshaun Watson is down to the Falcons and Saints, but the Panthers haven’t been completely Rhule’d out. These reports indicate Watson will take the weekend to weigh the landing spots, and the Falcons are more than willing to wait for his decision.
