MOBILE, Ala. The Miami Dolphins have been talking with Heisman Trophy winner DeVonta Smith. The Alabama wide receiver is the first player at his position to pick up that honor since Desmond Howard at Michigan.
The odds-on favorite for Watson’s likely destination initially was the Dolphins, who own two first-round picks. Watson, 25, has leverage, though, as he would have to be willing to waive his no-trade clause to join another team. Trading for Watson likely would cost the Jets quarterback Sam Darnold, multiple first-round picks and more.
Fuller might be the more frugal choice of the two, but if the Dolphins don't mind spreading their budget thin and really want to give Tagovailoa every chance to thrive in Miami, Allen Robinson II should be their most coveted free agent. In a loaded free-agent class of receivers, the Chicago Bears player is the most complete of the bunch. He's a big-bodied receiver who can go up and get the ball at the catch-point and has some of the most reliable hands in the game.
