The Dolphins were prepared to go all in for Deshaun Watson.  That was of course before all of the sexual assault allegations were made against him.

What does all in mean?  They were prepared to trade Tua Tagovailoa and draft picks to the Texans in order to land the star quarterback.  Miami was also on his list of preferred destinations.

From Larry Brown Sports:

The Miami Dolphins were at one point viewed as the favorite to land Deshaun Watson in a trade, but those talks fizzled out after the Houston Texans star was accused of sexual assault by multiple women. Had the two sides worked out a deal, however, it sounds like Tua Tagovailoa would have been included.

John McClain of the Houston Chronicle was told that the plan for the Dolphins was to send Tagovailoa and draft picks — including the third overall pick this year — to Houston.

The Dolphins unknowingly dodged a huge bullet.  Could you imagine giving up all that to land Watson only to have him hit with multiple sexual assault allegations?

It would have set the Dolphins franchise back another few years.
