The Dolphins are looking to boost their defense with pass-rusher Jadeveon Clowney.
Miami is interested in the three-time Pro Bowl pass-rusher, and coach Brian Flores recently met with the Texans star, according to multiple reports. Clowney, however, prefers a different destination, according to the Houston Chronicle, so to get the potential deal done the Dolphins might have to trade away a star of their own – and the rest of the players would not be happy if they do.
Although Miami is reportedly “not shopping” Laremy Tunsil, rumors continue to swirl around the possibility of him landing in Houston.
But to keep morale in the locker room up, it would be wise to avoid the rumored move.
According to the Miami Herald, which cited an unidentified league source, Dolphins players “would revolt” if the team trades Tunsil just before the start of the regular season.
“The backlash would be amazing,” the source said. “Guys would legit revolt.”
Tunsil, one of the most well-liked players in the organization, the Herald noted, is entering his fourth NFL season.
He has started 15 games in each of the last two seasons.
