Deshaun Watson could very well be headed to the sunshine state.
Yahoo NFL insider Charles Robinson reported on Saturday that the Miami Dolphins have emerged as the frontrunner to trade for the Houston Texans.
Robinson added that the Texans are seeking 3 first-round picks and 2 second-round picks, which was reported to him by a team that dropped out of the discussions.
Robinson said negotiating teams are angling for pick protections to mitigate any potential suspension or prosecution that may happen with his looming issues off the field.
Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk reported earlier today that there’s “mounting chatter” Watson will be traded in the coming days.
According to Florio, the two finalists to watch for Watson are the Panthers and Dolphins.
In 2020, Watson appeared in all 16 games for the Texans and completed 70.2 percent of his passes for 4,823 yards with 33 touchdowns and seven interceptions. He also rushed for 444 yards and three touchdowns.
