The first two years of Deshaun Watson's five-year, fully-guaranteed deal with the Browns have come to a close.
Over the past two years, Watson has participated in only 12 games due to various absences and a season-ending shoulder injury that occurred in Week 10.
In games that Watson started, the Browns went 5-1. Even more impressive is the fact that Watson guided Cleveland to a road victory over the Ravens in his final game. However, Watson's future performance with the Browns is still an open issue
On Monday, GM Andrew Berry expressed the team's satisfaction with Watson's rehabilitation progress.
Daryl Ruiter of 92.3 The Fan said that Berry expressed his satisfaction with the accomplishments he has achieved inside the organization, both on and off the field. We are eagerly anticipating his return next year. As our starting quarterback, we are quite confident in his abilities and believe he will have a breakout year.
During the first two years of quarterback Josh Watson's deal, Berry didn't give much thought to the idea that the Browns didn't gain anything from the acquisition.
"We really looked at this as something that we'll evaluate like a 10-year time horizon" when making the transaction, Berry added. We would want to see him play more frequently than he has recently. Despite his inability to prevent shoulder ailments this season, we are really satisfied with his performance
Moving forward, we are highly confident in him since he is talented, industrious, and versatile. Regardless matter who the Browns hire to replace Watson as offensive coordinator, they will need to find a way to make the most of Watson's abilities moving forward.
