Report: Miami Dolphins make final decision to not trade for Deshaun Watson as deadline looms

2 Min Read

According to a report, the Miami Dolphins have made their decision regarding their involvement in the Deshaun Watson sweepstakes.

The team will not trade for the quarterback.

Before the possibility of a deal went completely down the drain, NFL insider Cameron Wolfe explained that folks around the Dolphins organization felt that there was very little chance of a trade for Watson happening. He explained that the mood around the facility was “status quo.”

Now, the possibility of a deal is entirely dead.

Tua Tagovailoa will have the rest of the season to be at the helm of the offense. Even at the height of the Watson rumors, Brian Flores has claimed that the plan is for Tagovailoa to be the team’s starting quarterback for the rest of the season.

With Tagovailoa being Miami’s guy for the rest of the year, he’ll have a lot to prove over the final months of the season. His future with the organization may very well be determined by how he performs for the remainder of this campaign.

So far this season, the youngster has completed 65.6 percent of his passes for 1,040 yards and seven touchdowns over five games. He has also thrown five interceptions.
