The Deshaun Watson rumors won’t go away in Miami, in large part because the Dolphins still have not slammed the door on a trade for Deshaun Watson.

On Wednesday, coach Brian Flores came the closest that he has to becoming the latest Dolphins coach to make an unequivocal statement that eventually could be proven false.

“Tua [Tagovailoa] is our quarterback,” Flores told reporters, via Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald. “He’s had a good training camp, made a lot of progress, made a lot of improvement. We’re pleased with where he is.”

Tua definitely is their quarterback. But circumstances can change in football. Nine days ago, Cam Newton was the starting quarterback in New England. And now? Not.
