Again, this trade gives Miami an upgrade at quarterback but also allows Seattle to have a solid starting quarterback to pair with D.K. Metcalf (a must re-sign to a long-term contract after 2022) and Tyler Lockett. Tagovailoa would have the best weapons he has played with in Seattle and Wilson would have a much better defense to allow his offense to be on the field longer.
One thing of note here: Tagovailoa is a left-handed quarterback which means the right side of the offensive line would be more important than the left due to the blind-side for Tagovailoa would be on the right. But Gabe Jackson has been the best part of the Seattle line this year (I realize that isn’t saying much) and should be solid for the next two years. Finding a good right tackle would be very important, though, but Seattle might need to find a left tackle too in 2022 anyway (Duane Brown is a free agent).
This trade would help Seattle re-build their 2022 draft but would also allow the Seahawks to get a player who supplies interior pressure from the defensive line and has lots of good years left. Christian Wilkins is signed through 2022 (the end of his rookie contract) so Seattle would have to pay him only $4.912 million next year.
In 2021, Wilkins has 3.5 sacks but 12 quarterback hits and 9 tackles for loss. Al Woods currently leads the 2021 Seahawks defensive tackles with 5 quarterback hits and 4 tackles for loss.
This trade gives the Dolphins more draft picks, a starter at quarterback and a very good defensive piece while giving the Dolphins a quarterback who makes them immediately better and also gives them a third round choice. That could be a win-win for both teams.
