Teams leaving Texans trade voicemails

Teams leaving Texans trade voicemails

Maybe teams can try sliding into the Texans’ DMs.

According to a NFL Network report, the Texans front office is so dug in that they are not taking phone calls from teams interested in acquiring Deshaun Watson.

Tom Pelissero reported that some teams have even “resorted to leaving voicemails with trade offers.”

Watson has officially requested a trade and said behind that scenes that he will never take another snap for the Texans again.

Houston’s latest attempt to persuade him was a meeting with new coach David Culley, but Watson’s stance remains unchanged.

Watson signed a four-year, $156 million extension last season, but has felt disrespected by the Texans not consulting him on key decisions, such as hiring Nick Caserio as GM.

This could drag on for some time, though.

A separate NFL Network report stated that the Texans don’t view the start of free agency (March 17) or the 2021 NFL Draft (April 29) as any sort of deadline to deal Watson.

And the report added that the teams who are interested in Watson —  the Jets, Dolphins and Panthers have been most prominently mentioned in the rumor mill — “don’t expect” Watson to be traded. That could have something to do with their phone calls going unanswered.

Twitter reacts to Adam Scott’s horrendous triple bogey on par-5 hole at Masters

Twitter reacts to Adam Scott's horrendous triple bogey on par-5 hole at Masters

Adam Scott had virtually zero chance to challenge for the green jacket at the 2021 Masters Tournament heading into moving day on Saturday.

He has even less of a chance after suffering an absolutely abysmal round that included four bogeys, a double bogey and a triple bogey through 16 holes. That put him at 7-over 79 for the round and 10 over overall for the tournament.

Things started out well enough for Scott as he earned par on each of the first three holes. But bogeyed on Holes 4 and 5 before double-bogeying on 7 to put him at 4 over. He got one shot back on Hole 8 — his first birdie since the second hole of Round 2 — but things didn’t get much better from there.

Fast-forward to Hole 15, where Scott attempted to get a shot back on the par-5 hole after bogeying and birdying the prior two holes. His first shot didn’t land on the fairway, but the 319-yard drive left him in decent position to get to the green in two strokes (just 215 yards away).

Unfortunately for Scott, he overshot the green and the ball rolled down the backside embankment, 35 yards from the pin; he also called a one-stroke penalty on himself for his ball moving at address. He then proceeded to hit the next ball into the drink on the other side of the green. He needed three more shots — one of which very nearly rolled into the water again — just to salvage a triple bogey.

Oh, then he bogeyed on the next hole, too. (Here’s a handy shot-by-shot breakdown from Masters.com).

Naturally, Twitter was quick to jump on the 2013 Master winner’s misfortune:

Masters 2021 live scores, updates, highlights from Saturday’s Round 3 leaderboard

Masters live streams: How to watch live coverage of the Masters online in 2021

If the weekend play at the Masters Tournament is anything like the first two rounds, then we’re in for an exciting finish at the Augusta National Golf Club.

Justin Rose is in control at the top of the leaderboard heading into Round 3 at 7 under par, the same score he carded after one round. Things looked dire in the second round when he carded four bogeys on the front nine, but he overcame the bad start with four birdies — three on the back nine — to finish even for the round.

He remained a stroke ahead of second-place golfers Will Zalatoris and Brian Harman, who are at 6 under through two rounds. That shows just how perilous the greens can be at the Masters — and just how incredibly well golfers will need to play to win the most storied major in golf.

And the greens will only get faster as play continues into moving day. Rose certainly doesn’t have a big enough lead to rest on his haunches. Marc Leishman and Jordan Spieth are tied for third at 5 under; Bernd Wiesberger, Tony Finau, Justin Thomas, Si Woo Kim, Cameron Champ and Hidekyi Matsuma are tied for sixth at 4 under.

It is still anyone’s tournament. Sporting News is tracking live scoring updates and highlights of the 2021 Masters leaders and featured groups. Follow for complete results from Saturday’s Round 3 at Augusta National.
