A blockbuster Deshaun Watson trade is being worked on, according to a very prominent sports agent.
Powerful NFL agent Drew Rosenhaus revealed on Sunday night that a Houston Texans-Miami Dolphins trade is being worked on.
Earlier this weekend, reports surfaced about a potential Watson trade between the Texans and the Dolphins.
Rosenhaus confirmed that the Dolphins and Texans have been discussing a potential trade.
“The Dolphins are absolutely working on this deal with the Texans,” Rosenhaus admitted on Sunday evening.

There are several factors at play, though.
Most importantly: Watson remains under investigation after being accused of sexual misconduct by more than 20 women. It’s unclear if he will be allowed to play moving forward, though the NFL has yet to rule him out.
The Texans’ asking price for Watson is very high, too. Houston is reportedly seeking three first round picks and a two second round picks in exchange for the superstar quarterback.
The trade talk surrounding Watson has been pretty quiet throughout the offseason, but things are clearly heating up heading into Week 1.
Houston is set to open the season on Sunday, Sept. 12 against Jacksonville. Miami opens the year against New England.
