NFL Insider: Texans and Dolphins ‘Haggling Back and Forth’ Over Deshaun Watson Deal

The NFL trade deadline is less than a month away.

With the deadline rapidly approaching, the pressure on the Texans to unload embattled quarterback Deshaun Watson increases. As it stands right now, the Miami Dolphins are reportedly the team still showing the most interest.

According to NFL Insider Jay Glazer, while the Texans have somewhat lessened their asking price, the Dolphins are still somewhat reluctant to meet the demands.

“Nothing’s changed, only because Houston still hasn’t gotten what they want from their demands for Miami,” Glazer said. “The desire is still there from Miami. And yes, they did soften their demands. It’s still whether or not Miami can give them what they’re looking for here.”

Watson has been inactive for every game this season, despite Texans starting quarterback Tyrod Taylor going down with an injury and rookie Davis Mills struggling in his place.

Even with Watson facing 22 civil lawsuits accusing him of sexual misconduct, the Dolphins have remained consistent in their interest for the former Clemson quarterback, and according to Glazer, the two teams are continuing to negotiate.

“I told you a couple weeks ago, Houston, they did soften their trade demands somewhat,” Glazer said. “They’re still not going to give him away just for nothing. So, they’re still kind of haggling back and forth. They’ve still got some more time before the trade deadline.”
