You know that All Pro QB Deshaun Watson that the Texans insist they are not trading?
Yeah, well you can add the Miami Dolphins to the list of teams that they will not—wink wink—be talking to about doing just that.
Of course, if they were to do what we all think is inevitable and do exactly that—Miami is one of Watson’s preferred destinations—and not just because Governor Ron DeSantis runs it like the actual free state Texas once was.
“According to a source with direct knowledge, a high-ranking team official has told at least one outsider that the Dolphins expect to be in the mix to acquire Watson if the Texans make him available (which they have not, to this point), says the Miami Herald
And whole Texans owner Cal McNair and GM Nick Caserio have stated time and time again that they have no plans to trade Watson this offseason. However, they may not have a choice if he begins a holdout once 2021 training camp begins.
And the Dolphins have the depth and assets needed to acquire the three-time Pro Bowler, including the Number 3 pick in the 2021 draft.
Plus, he gets Rush Limbaugh’s birthday off in Florida.
Seems like an elementary move for Watson and Miami.
- Miami will have some competition for Watson, though. The Carolina Panthers and Denver Broncos are also reportedly planning to make an offer for the Clemson product. The Panthers cleared about $20 million in cap space this week and appear very serious about making a run at Watson.
