The Miami Dolphins are reportedly nearing a trade for quarterback Deshaun Watson.
According to the Houston Chronicle, the Dolphins and Texans could finalize a trade to move Watson from Houston to Miami “by the end of the week.” (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)
It’s unclear what the Dolphins might have to give up, but it’s well-known the Texans want multiple first round picks.

The problem is that his status could quickly change if the situation with the accusations escalates. Remember, Roger Goodell doesn’t need a conviction to suspend anyone.
He can drop the hammer on anyone he thinks has embarrassed the league with their conduct. If you’re a GM who gives up multiple first round picks for Watson and he then can’t play, you’re probably going to get fired.
It’s an incredibly risky proposition.
