With Ryan Fitzpatrick headed to Washington, it grew to become official that the Dolphins could be trying to find a backup quarterback this offseason. A quarterback that would not solely lead an offense if known as upon however one that would assist Tua Tagovailoa proceed to develop and study.
However don’t take my phrase for it.
Right here’s what Brian Flores stated he was searching for in a veteran quarterback final week.
“We’re searching for anyone with these traits within the backup quarterback place. Somebody who is wise, somebody who we really feel like – hopefully this doesn’t occur, but when he needed to go in, we might nonetheless win a ball recreation. There’s just a few guys on the market that we’ve taken a take a look at all of them and we’re nonetheless sort of placing that plan in place actually, with simply sort of setting the quantity yesterday. These conferences are sort of ongoing and couple that with a lot of releases which are occurring actually on a day-to-day foundation, we’re nearly re-ranking every day. I want I had extra for you there, however these traits are what we’re searching for – powerful, good, aggressive, clearly correct and all of the issues from a expertise standpoint that you simply want on the quarterback place (equivalent to) decision-making and command of the offense. Hopefully we’ll get that sorted out in some kind or style, however yeah, that’s what we’re searching for.”
I believe we now know which quarterback the Dolphins imagine matches the invoice.
