While no trade has come to pass yet, there's certainly not universal agreement that such a pact would be a wise move by Dolphins general manager Chris Grier.

On Friday's edition of PFT Live, Peter King was very critical of the idea:

"...What John McClain has reported in Houston ... that he believes a trade will happen with Miami and Houston involving Deshaun Watson ... to me, I just think it's beyond a bad idea, I think it's a terrible idea.

"And it's a terrible idea because of so many things. One, that you have basically given Tua Tagovailoa less than a year-and-a-half ... I think he's had 12 starts in the NFL. You've given him 12 starts and now you have determined that he's not going to be your guy going forward. And when you do determine that, you not only take all of the draft capital and all of the capital you used to get in place to take Tua Tagovailoa, but now you use all of the capital that you're going to have to trade to get Deshaun Watson.
