Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson is expected to report for training camp Sunday, a source told NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Watson, who didn't attend organized team activities in May, still wants to be moved after requesting a trade from the Texans earlier this offseason, Rapoport adds.

By reporting to camp, Watson will avoid a $50,000 fine for each day missed at practice, notes Tom Pelissero of NFL Network.

Watson initially requested a trade after the Texans hired Nick Caserio as their general manager in January. The 25-year-old signal-caller recorded a career-high 33 touchdown throws last season and a league-leading 4,823 passing yards. However, Houston finished the campaign 4-12.

Watson is also facing off-field issues, as the NFL is currently investigating the passer after 22 lawsuits alleging sexual assault and inappropriate behavior were filed against him this offseason.

At least eight teams reportedly expressed interest in trading for Watson prior to his legal issues, including the New York Jets, Miami Dolphins, Carolina Panthers, Denver Broncos, San Francisco 49ers, New England Patriots, Chicago Bears, and Washington Football Team.

The Texans added multiple quarterbacks this offseason, signing veteran signal-caller Tyrod Taylor and using a third-round pick on Davis Mills.
