Good job, Houston. As we all know, the first rule of running a franchise is pissing off your franchise player to the point that the relationship seems irreparable. We’re not even talking about James Harden, or Deandre Hopkins. Deshaun Watson has all but explicitly confirmed that he’s fed up with the Houston Texans organization.

NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported that Watson hasn’t been returning the organization’s calls.

And on Friday, Watson went for the cryptic bomb on Twitter.

What could that be a reference to? Look to five days ago, and this tweet from Schefter, which said, last offseason, “Deshaun Watson’s anger level was “a 2….This time, it’s a 10.”

Schefter retweeted the tweet below.

Watson tweeted that it was a reference to “Mo Reala,” by Future, with the line: “I was on 2 two then I took it to 10.”

Twitter, as you would expect, is enjoying itself:

Earlier in the day, Watson commented on a 49ers fan account of himself in a Joe Montana jersey:
