Brian Flores is only giving more fuel to the fie that the Miami Dolphins are doing something behind the scenes to trade for Deshaun Watson.
Folowing the Dolphins final preseason game, the Dolphins head coach gave an interesting answer when asked if he’s willing to say the team is not interested in Deshaun Watson.
He said he is “interested in the players that are on our team.”
Flores said “reports, speculation are not things we really get into” and that any discussions the team has about personnel will remain internal.
He also reaffirmed his belief in starting quarterback Tua Tagovailoa.
“I am very confident in Tua,” Flores said, via Joe Schad of the Palm Beach Post. “He has done a lot of good things. He has played well. My conversations with a player are going to remain between me and that player.”
Watson has a no-trade clause in his contract and therefore would have to approve any deal. He signed a four-year, $156 million contract extension with the Texans in September.
Watson has been selected to three Pro Bowls in his four NFL seasons while throwing for 14,539 yards and 104 touchdowns. He threw for 4,823 yards and 33 touchdowns last season.
