Tua Tagovailoa, Christian Wilkins & Multiple Draft Picks Could Get Trade For Deshaun Watson Done, Says Peter King
The most talked about destination for Deshaun Watson after his trade demand has been the Miami Dolphins.
According to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald, the Dolphins are absolutely going to go after the disgruntled QB if the Texans change their stance on trading him.
“But 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.”
Peter King decided to give an appropriate trade proposal should the two sides start to engage with each other:
“Miami trades defensive end Christian Wilkins, quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, first-round picks in 2021 (third overall) and 2023, and second-round picks in 2021 and 2022 for Watson. In essence, Miami is trading the 13th overall pick in 2019 (Wilkins) and the fifth overall pick in 2020 (Tagovailoa), plus two ones and two twos for Watson. Advantage for Miami is the deal would leave the Dolphins with first-round and second-round picks this year and their first next year while giving them a quarterback to play on equal footing with Josh Allen in the AFC East for the next decade.”
That is two players and four draft picks for Deshaun Watson. Is giving up all of that worth it for having a franchise QB you can build around?
We shall see if and when the Texans start taking offers.
