Deshaun Watson could be traded to Dolphins for Tua Tagovailoa?

Deshaun Watson is clearly unhappy with the moves the Houston Texans have made in the days since their 2020 season ended, and there has been a lot of talk about him demanding a trade. If that happens, the Miami Dolphins will reportedly be a potential suitor to watch.

ESPN’s Chris Mortensen confirmed on “Sunday NFL Countdown” that Watson is unhappy with the Texans for not involving him in the decision to hire general manager Nick Caserio and not interviewing Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy as part of their head-coaching search. Mortensen said Watson’s “concerns about the franchise’s insensitivity on social justice causes have been reinforced.”

If the Texans do start exploring trade possibilities, Mortensen says the idea of swapping him for Tua Tagovailoa has been floated.

“You’re not gonna get anything but denials at this stage from both franchises, but this is an offseason puzzle we may be trying to put together,” the NFL insider said.

Trades of that magnitude are extremely rare in the NFL. That said, there have been some rumblings that Dolphins head coach Brian Flores is not sold on Tagovailoa. The idea of giving up on a No. 5 overall pick after one season seems farfetched, but the Dolphins would almost certainly consider it if they were replacing him with an established Pro Bowler like Watson.

The Texans have reportedly not been able to get in touch with Watson in days. The quarterback’s agent sent a tweet on Friday ripping the team, but he quickly deleted it. You can see a screenshot of the tweet here.
