The Jacksonville Jaguars could do business with another AFC East team.
If the Patriots aren’t interested in trading for Gardner Minshew, maybe another AFC South team could come calling. The Miami Dolphins already have a starting quarterback in Tua Tagovailoa but as recently as late February, they were expected to be in the mix to acquire Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson, per Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald. In fact, the Clemson standout cited the Phins as his second-favorite landing destination in case he were traded.
Also, there’s a chance the Dolphins take a quarterback early in 2021’s draft, so it’s not a given the Alabama standout will be their Day 1 starter this upcoming season. On the other hand, if they don’t trade for Watson or draft a quarterback prospect, they could bring in someone to compete with the Tagovailoa.
Minshew may be among the kings of garbage time stats, but he has plenty of starting experience and his presence in Miami would make for an interesting training camp. Furthermore, the Dolphins need to fill the void Ryan Fitzpatrick left when he signed a one-year deal with the Washington Football Team.
Tagovailoa may or may not become the Dolphins’ franchise quarterback, but it seems like they don’t wait to find out and are already looking for Plan B. If they haven’t called the Jaguars about Minshew, they should go ahead and do it.
