Miami Dolphins Were Willing To Give Up A Massive Trade Package For Deshaun Watson

The Miami Dolphins were considered the front-runner to acquire Deshaun Watson and according to give up a lot for the disgruntled Houston Texans quarterback.

On Thursday, Glazer reported that the Miami Dolphins were willing to trade three first-round picks and two second-round picks for Watson on the condition that Watson settle the 22 unresolved sexual assault claims against him.

Glazer went on to report the Texans got cold feet about the deal because they believe they could get more once Watson settled his off-the-field issues:

The Dolphins weren’t the only team to offer that type of package as NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero reported that there were multiple teams that offered packages that included three first-round picks and two third-round picks for Watson.


Panthers owner David Tepper decided not to move forward before the deadline, and Dolphins owner Stephen Los followed suit hours before Tuesday’s deadline in part because Watson had not settled the civil cases.

Meanwhile, Watson has a no-trade clause and it’s widely reported that he would only waive the no-trade clause for the Dolphins.

Other teams, as well as the Texans, are hoping for more clarity with Watson during the offseason regarding his sexual assault cases. Handling that could bring a massive package back for the rebuilding Texans.
