Report: Miami Dolphins have agreed on trade terms to acquire Deshaun Watson from Houston Texans

1 Min Read

The Miami Dolphins reportedly have agreed to terms on a deal for Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson, but they are waiting for his legal issues to be resolved.

Miami reportedly wants NFL commissioner Roger Goodell to give clarity on the length of a suspension Watson will face for sexual assault allegations that were brought to light this offseason.

It’s going to be hard for the Dolphins to find the exact punishment that Watson will face from the NFL or in the civil suit pending against him.

A Watson deal would likely mean the end to Tua Tagovailoa’s time in Miami.

Tagovailoa was the No. 5 pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, but he and the Dolphins have struggled this season going 1-6 through the first seven weeks.

Watson is an All-Pro caliber player, but he comes with a massive question mark regarding his status.
