ESPN is reporting the Miami Dolphins have acquired Chiefs backup QB Tyler Thigpen for an undisclosed draft pick. I can’t imagine Miami gave up anything above a sixth rounder for him but it may be dependent on whether or not Thigpen play. Obviously the team will still be going with Henne this week as Thigpen will need time to acclimate himself to the offense, but the move doesn’t exactly ring with confidence in the two young QB’s Miami does have.
Thigpen is a third year player out of Coastal Carolina who played very well on a bad team down the stretch last year. He has pretty good mobility though I can’t comment with any authority on the strength of his arm. Thigpen beat out Brodie Croyle and Damon Huard last year during the season for KC but was made expendable by the acquisition of Matt Cassel.
