MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. – Three reports out of Houston on Wednesday indicate that the Dolphins and Texans are working on a potential trade and could have a deal done this week.

The two teams have been linked for months.

Watson has made it clear that he wants out of the Houston and would like to play in Miami.

The quarterback is also dealing with off-the-field problems. He’s been accused by more than two dozen women of inappropriate sexual conduct.

The Dolphins currently have a 1-5 record.

The Texans are reportedly asking for a big price for Watson.

The Dolphins have plenty of draft capital that could make a trade possible.

The NFL trade deadline is Nov. 2.
