Deshaun Watson has spoken with Houston Texans new coach David Culley and the quarterback has made it clear he wants to be traded.

“[He] told Culley he has no intention of playing for the Texans again,” ESPN’s Dan Graziano reported Thursday. “No change from Watson’s end. He remains dug in.”

The Texans appear set for a staredown with the star QB.

“Houston continues to avoid conversations with teams in regards to trading Deshaun Watson per sources,” ESPN’s Dianna Russini tweeted Thursday. “They are refusing to trade their franchise QB.”

With the Texans unwilling to listen to trade offers, some teams have “resorted to leaving voicemails with trade offers,” according to a report from NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero.

Perhaps in direct response to Graziano’s tweet about Watson remaining “dug in,” Pelissero tweeted that Houston is “not budging.” The two sides — Watson and the Texans — seem to be voicing their stances through the media.

There’s been no word yet on if Denver Broncos general manager George Paton has left a voicemail about Watson. Multiple outlets — including NFL Network — have reported the Broncos will pursue the quarterback if Houston gives in and agrees to trade him.
