Deshaun Watson Trade Miami Up – With A Big Catch – .


Time is running out for the Dolphins and Texans to agree on a trade for Houston quarterback Deshaun Watson.

Miami owner Stephen Ross has reportedly approved the swap, but on condition that Watson’s legal issues be resolved before the deal is closed, according to the Houston Chronicle.

Watson faces 22 civil lawsuits for sexual misconduct and 10 women have filed complaints against the police. Watson denied the allegations shortly after they were made public in March.

The Dolphins and Texans have reportedly accepted compensation over a deal that will send Watson to Miami, but his off-court issues could stop the whole process. And Watson’s legal issues are unlikely to be resolved before the November 2 trade deadline.

The Panthers – the other team closely linked to Watson – will no longer pursue him this season, NFL Network reported Wednesday. Watson has so far not waived his no-trade clause for the Dolphins.

Ross also wants to know if Commissioner Roger Goodell is considering suspending Watson under the NFL’s personal conduct policy and, if so, for how long, according to the outlet.

“I know what it’s about and I don’t mind it,” Ross told reporters Tuesday at the NFL owners meetings.

On Tuesday, Goodell said the NFL did not have enough information to place Watson on the exempt list, which amounts to this paid administrative leave.

“We don’t all have access to this information and we pride ourselves on not interfering with it,” Goodell said at an NFL owners meeting in New York. “This process is underway… We don’t think we have the information we need to put him on the exempt list. “

As per the collective agreement, the NFL will not discipline Watson until his legal situation is resolved.
