HOUSTON (AP) — Deshaun Watson plans to report to training camp with the Houston Texans.
That’s according to a person familiar with his thinking who spoke to The Associated Press.
The person spoke to the AP on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly on the matter.
Quarterback Deshaun Watson will report to the Texans today to avoid being fined $50K per day during their training camp, per @WerderEdESPN. Watson’s trade request remains in effect, with source saying nothing has changed in that regard.

The person added that the quarterback still wants to be traded and is reporting solely to avoid being fined.
Watson would have faced fines of $50,000 a day if he didn’t report.
Quarterbacks are reporting today in Houston, and #Texans QB Deshaun Watson is expected to be among them, source said. He’s showing up for testing to begin entry into training camp. However, Watson’s stance about the organization and desire to be traded remains unchanged.

Watson requested a trade in January before 22 women filed lawsuits alleging that he sexually assaulted or harassed them.
