With Deshaun Watson reportedly telling new coach David Culley that he has no intention of playing for the Houston Texans again, the Miami Dolphins are favored to be the quarterback's next NFL destination.

The Dolphins have an interesting trade piece in 2020 first-round pick Tua Tagovailoa and arethe 250 favorites by SportsBetting.com to land Watson this offseason. They are narrowly ahead of the Denver Broncos and New York Jets at 300.

The Broncos with Drew Lock and the Jets with Sam Darnold are each evaluating their quarterback situation this offseason and are viewed as potential landing spots for veterans on the move. However, neither team is among the four that Russell Wilson's agent reportedly told ESPN his client is willing to go to if traded by the Seattle Seahawks.

Watson reportedly met with Culley late last week and reiterated his desire to be moved by Houston.

Among his issues with the franchise, Watson was unhappy with the trade of wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins last year and with not being consulted on the hiring of a new general manager this offseason.

However, the team has been steadfast that it will not trade Watson.

Watson has thrown for 14,539 yards and 104 touchdowns in four seasons since the Texans selected him with the 12th overall pick of the 2017 NFL Draft. He has also rushed for 1,677 yards and 17 scores.

Other teams expected to be in the Watson sweepstakes by SportsBetting.com include the Carolina Panthers (600) and the Chicago Bears, Washington Football Team and Philadelphia Eagles, each at 1200. The Panthers' odds have shortened from 1200 when the sportsbook installed Watson trade odds in January.

With Wilson's developing situation in Seattle, the Seahawks' odds have shortened from 10000 to 5000 to acquire Watson.

Deshaun Watson next team odds:

Miami Dolphins 250

Denver Broncos 300

New York Jets 300

Carolina Panthers 600

Chicago Bears 1200

Washington Football Team 1200

Philadelphia Eagles 1200

San Francisco 49ers 1500

Dallas Cowboys 1500

New England Patriots 2000

New Orleans Saints 2000

Las Vegas Raiders 2000

Jacksonville Jaguars 3000

Minnesota Vikings 4000

New York Giants 4000

Cleveland Browns 4000

Atlanta Falcons 5000

Seattle Seahawks 5000

Tennessee Titans 5000

Pittsburgh Steelers 6600

Los Angeles Chargers 7000

Cincinnati Bengals 7000

Arizona Cardinals 7000

Baltimore Ravens 7000

Tampa Bay Buccaneers 10000

Buffalo Bills 20000

Green Bay Packers 20000

Kansas City Chiefs 50000

The Detroit Lions (Jared Goff), Indianapolis Colts (Carson Wentz) and Los Angeles Rams (Matthew Stafford) are not being offered as potential Watson destinations as they have agreed to acquire new starting quarterbacks in trades that cannot be made official until the league year begins next month.
