The Dolphins may have a revolt on their hands.
It solves an immediate need for the Texans, as upgrading the protection for quarterback Deshaun Watson, and doing it with a young player under contractual control for two years.
Stills could be considered a salary dump for the Dolphins (among other things), but he’s a productive veteran the Texans can use.
The moves might be prudent for the Dolphins for the long term, but it sends a terrible message to a locker room. Naming Ryan Fitzpatrick their starting quarterback suggests they’re trying to win, after they traded a second-round pick to see if former first-rounder Josh Rosen can play. Now, Rosen might be fortunate if he doesn’t have to.
