I had on Carton and Roberts on NY Sports Radio briefly yesterday around 4pm and they seemed convinced that a trade of Watson to the Dolphins was a fait accompli and would be announced today. I don't know why they thought this as they started rambling on about is it better to be wrong and happy or right and miserable? Then I got to my destination and I didn't hear any more.

This article on a site I've never heard of, which references another report, is all I could find about it.

If so... I'm curious how our resident Phins Phans would pheel about it. From everything I've read in the Tua thread, it seems like he (Tua) is doing everything that the staff would want. Would bringing in Watson hurt more than it would help?

Dolphins fan here, and I don't get it.

Miami grabbed their guy (Tua) with the 5th overall pick in '20, and he's now "looking the part," following adequate time removed from a catastrophic hip injury. His game/style in college was always going to be game/style in the pros, and the offense has been devised with these strengths in consideration. What's changed?

1) Watson becoming available. Okay, I get this … when it was just about Deshaun wanting out of a poor situation. Because, shit, if a top 5-7 25-year-old QB comes available, that should change most teams' plans. But now that it's become apparent that he's a serial masseuse assaulter?

2) Tua was "ownership's pick." Some are reporting this. But, really? Flores and Grier let Ross pick their guy? If that's true, why is Ross is letting them move off "his" guy so quickly?

For me, this would only make sense if the following were true:

1) Flores and Grier are unsure about Tua.

2) Watson can be had at a significant discount.

3) The plan is to sit Watson for the year.

If Tua flourishes this season, you can get "your money back" on Watson in a trade elsewhere next offseason. The legal shit will be settled, and a handful of teams will want him. Conversely, if Tua disappoints, you deal him for the best you can get back, and roll with Watson.

If he's not going to be suspended by the league or put on the commissioners list, why don't they just play him? Just the optics? (He can't be refusing to play, correct? Or else why would they pay him?)

The NFL has two weeks to make a decision, and no reason beyond the well-being of the Texans franchise and locker room, which nobody really cares about, to rush it.
