NFL trade rumors: Dolphins’ owner Stephen Ross expected to replace QB Tua Tagovailoa with Aaron Rodgers

As the final game week of the NFL regular season approaches, teams are becoming more aware of potential trades. Among them, the Miami Dolphins’ pursuit of a new quarterback to replace Tua Tagovailoa caused consternation in the NFL.

The Miami Dolphins are third in the AFC East, with a five-game losing streak keeping them from clinching a playoff spot with one game remaining. The Dolphins suffered another setback when their star quarterback suffered his second concussion against Aaron Rodgers‘ Green Bay Packers, forcing them to make a desperate move.

What is the rumored trade involving the Dolphins and Tua Tagovailoa?

Dolphins owner Stephen Ross is considering all options, including trading the unavailable quarterback. According to Armando Salguero, the owner might go for the Packers’ veteran Aaron Rodgers to replace young Tagovailoa. “Finally, the Dolphins have to make a decision on Tua Tagovailoa,” Salguero wrote. “Are they willing to run it back with him as the starter when he’s been unable to stay healthy?”

“And let’s just say Aaron Rodgers really meant what he said two weeks ago about playing in Miami. … If that is serious, Ross will be intrigued,” Armando pointed out in the postgame interview.

Previously, the Dolphins were interested in another veteran, Tampa Bay Buccaneers legend Tom Brady, who is also at the end of his current contract. We can assume Aaron might get more focus from Ross for the 39-year-old’s destructive play against Miami that stole the win from him over 45-year-old Tom, despite the fact that they both had shown their interest in Miami.

However, the 2010 Super Bowl champion and MVP might follow the path of Tom Brady, as he played for the Packers for his entire career since 2005. During this time, he completed 65.3% of his passes for 58,850 yards with 474 touchdowns and 104 interceptions.
