Texans acquire Laremy Tunsil, Kenny Stills in trade with Dolphins

Laremy Tunsil

The Houston Texans are making more big moves to address Deshaun Watson’s blind side.

The Texans are acquiring offensive lineman Laremy Tunsil and wide receiver Kenny Stills from the Miami Dolphins in exchange for a package of draft picks, including a first-round selection.

The Dolphins are in full tank mode, as they were expected to be. Tunsil is one of the league’s best offensive linemen, but the Dolphins would rather have draft capital going forward. The inclusion of Stills is also interesting, given his criticism of owner Stephen Ross’ political stances and what it may have meant for his roster spot.

For Houston, Tunsil will protect Watson, who has been in dire need of the protection in recent years. That can only help him and the rest of the offense. This is also the second big trade of the day by Houston, who also traded Jadeveon Clowney to Seattle.
