The days of Deshaun Watson being on the trade block with the Miami Dolphins are over. Right or wrong, his future is now in limbo.
For months, Miami Dolphins fans have heard nothing but Deshaun Watson trade talk. Miami was willing to give up not just two first-round picks this year, but likely one next year and the year after and on top of that, players. Now, it would be more shocking if they offered a bag of chips.
Deshaun Watson is in trouble. The allegations made against him are not good and while I will not try to pass any opinion on those troubles we can say that it is a good thing Miami didn’t try to work something out earlier.
The legal process for Watson is just starting and if you are not sure what we are referring to, you may want to search it on your own. Watson has been the face of the Houston Texans, a community image that has been untarnished. Until now. While he denies any wrongdoing, we can’t help but wonder about these allegations coming at the time that they did. Many do not believe that coincidence is playing a part in this but instead having the allegations made public as free agency started, is.
Regardless of whether they are true or not, we can certainly guess that the Dolphins will not be picking up the phone to offer a trade package. What interest the Dolphins ever had in Watson will be left to the local media who cover the team and whether or not they have said Miami was all-in on the QB. In other words, no one will come out and admit they were wrong and that Miami never was looking. Chris Grier could put those rumors to rest sometime down the road should he desire. Once he is away from the team.
In April, the Dolphins will have their allotment of draft picks barring some major unforeseen change in all of this chaos leads to a trade that right now no one would believe. For all the talk over the last two months, it all comes crashing down in a manner of days. At least a trade hadn’t happened before all of this.
Now, the team is once again Tua Tagovailoa’s and that is the way it should have been from the start.
