Phins Tender Thiggy

The Miami Dolphins have decided that back-up QB Tyler Thigpen is too valuable to risk losing to free agency.  If there is a free agency.  The team tendered the QB at an undisclosed level.  Another team could sign him a restricted free agent and would give up the value of that tender whichever round draft pick it is associated with.

The Dolphins will have right of first refusal under the previous CBA.

This is a safety net tender for the Dolphins that will provide them a capable back-up in the event that there is no free agency and they are unable to secure players for next season in a timely manner.

    Miami tendered thigpen at the second round level. Hopefully, the new CBA will get signed before the draft will make thigpen a restricted free agent. Hopefully
    another team will sign him and give miami a second round pick!

    no one will give miami a 2nd rounder for thigpen, he isnt worth a 5th rounder, all this shows me is once again we will have a crappy backup QB, I am honestly starting to believe there is a QB curse. I have been a dolphins fan my entire life and its sad our team will be mediocre for a long long time and even though I will cheer every game like I always do no matter what, is really getting pathetic just hoping for a wildcard spot rather then being serious contenders. Atleast we have the HEAT miami fans

      If no one signs thigpen, then he will compete for the starting QB spot. Thigpen would be a very capable backup and deserves a look as a starter.

      they never gave him a legit chance
