The Miami Dolphins lost their sixth straight game Sunday with a two-point loss to the Atlanta Falcons, and fans have been thinking about their sophomore quarterback’s future.
Tua Tagovailoa threw four touchdown passes, including one to Mack Hollins that gave the team a run late in the fourth quarter after losing 27-14 at the start of the period. Tagovailoa finished 32-for-40 for 291 yards and two interceptions.

While he had a decent game in the area score, Tagovailoa’s future has been in question since the start of the 2021 season. The team are said to be heavily engaged in talks with the Houston Texans over an exchange for Deshaun Watson. Watson still faces 22 civil lawsuits alleging sexual harassment and nearly a dozen complaints against the police. However, the teams still seem interested.
Fans debated Tagovailoa’s future and whether Miami should trade for Watson.
Meanwhile, NFL super-agent Drew Rosenahaus begged the Dolphins to trade for Watson.
NFL HAS NOT DECIDED ON DESHAUN WATSON’S DECISION IF HE SWAP, TEXANS SEEK MASSIVE TRANSPORTATION: REPORTS
“Go get Watson. Do whatever it takes. This franchise needs him, ”he said. WSVN-TV.
Tagovailoa addressed the rumors during his post-match press conference.
Watson’s stats make him a business target, but all the issues with the quarterback could make him a nightmare for any team trading for him. And a trade could mean giving up at least three first-round draft picks.
Watson has not been charged with a felony and has not been sanctioned by the league for the allegations. The quarterback could be on the commissioner’s exemption list, essentially suspending him with pay until the league’s investigation into the allegations against him is completed. But he would be the first active player to make the list without actually being charged with a felony.
The league “doesn’t know what the decision will be” if he is traded, according to Pro Football Talk. The only thing that is certain is that “the NFL will make a decision when a decision has to be made”.
