Are the Dolphins desperate enough to go all-in for Deshaun Watson or Russell Wilson?

Matt Spiegel of the Parkins & Spiegel Show created a scale to see which NFL is the most desperate for a quarterback.

(670 The Score) A franchise-altering opportunity could await a fortunate NFL team or two this offseason. Two superstar quarterbacks, the Texans' Deshaun Watson and Seahawks' Russell Wilson, could be made available on the trade market.

To acquire either the 25-year-old Watson or the 32-year-old Wilson, a team would need to deal monumental assets away -- perhaps two or three first-round picks plus a young quarterback or star-level player. It's a price that perhaps only a desperate team would pay.

With that in mind, we created a new concept: The QB Desperation Index. It was designed by Parkins & Spiegel host Matt Spiegel and 670 The Score reporter Chris Emma to shed light on which of the 10 most likely suitors in the potential Watson or Wilson sweepstakes would be the most desperate to reach a deal.

The index is based on of five categories, with a points system built to reflect the state of each team. Points are accumulated in each category to showcase the current state of desperation with each team. Here's a look at the teams, details, grades and cumulative totals.

Participants: Bears, Broncos, Dolphins, Falcons, 49ers, Giants, Jets, Panthers, Raiders, Saints
