Trade suitors for quarterback Deshaun Watson might be left with sticker shock based on the reported asking price from the Houston Texans.

ESPN reported Sunday morning that Houston’s price tag includes a combination of six picks or players to move Watson.

A passive participant at training camp, Watson is unlikely to play for the Texans this season.

Watson is inactive for Week 1 when the Texans kick off the regular season against the Jacksonville Jaguars under first-year coach David Culley. Watson demanded a trade in the offseason and is under investigation for allegations of sexual assault and misconduct from more than 20 women.

Because of the off-field matters, teams interested in trading for Watson are requesting contingencies on compensation, per the report Sunday.

ESPN said sources around the league confirmed general manager Nick Caserio will not trade the three-time Pro Bowler for anything less than the six combined players and picks.
