The Miami Dolphins have only three quarterbacks on this year’s roster, so far, but that should change by the start of training camp.
Over the course of the next month, we will look at all of the players on the Dolphins roster and as it shifts and changes through OTAs, that roster will not likely be defined entirely until the start of training camp, and then, mandated NFL cuts from 90 to 75 and eventually to 53 will thin out.
We will culminate the month with our pre-camp roster predictions and the final 53 man roster predictions. Each unit will get a look at the current roster and hopefully we will get them published prior to changes over the course of the month. We start with the easiest of the roster positions, quarterback. Why? Because there are only three players.
Would it be fair to put Tua Tagovailoa in the number one spot? Over the course of nine games last year he had some ups and some downs but is better than Jacoby Brissett who has been in the league for five seasons? Considering that Brissett has 30 starts in his career, none last year after he was replaced on the Colts roster by Phillip Rivers, we are going to say yes.

- Tua Tagovailoa practicing with teammates is everything a leader does
- 4 offensive tackles Miami Dolphins could draft at 51
- Miami Dolphins don’t need CB help but these 5 could be available at 51
- 4 players that could replace Wilkins if Miami Dolphins don’t re-sign him
- Miami Dolphins have a starting point with Wilkins after Simmons deal
Tagovailoa is the future for the Dolphins and they will ride him until they simply can’t afford to. It is on Tua to show the team, both players and coaches, that he is ready to lead this club deep into the season and to the playoffs.
While he may lack the experience, he more than makes up for it with his ability to play the game and learn from mistakes. He has battled adversity his entire career and has proven his doubters wrong at every step.
Jacoby Brissett is clearly number two. Originally drafted by the Patriots in round three of the 2016 draft, Brissett spent one season with the Patriots starting two games before being traded to the Colts in 2017 for wide-receiver Philip Dorsett.
Last on our list, for now, is Reid Sinett. Sinnett. Sinnett was signed by the Buccaneers as an undrafted free agent in 2020. He was released in September, signed to the practice squad, and then released again. The Dolphins had released Josh Rosen who was picked up by Tampa Bay.
Sinnett spent last season on Miami’s practice squad but was active for two games in 2020. For now, he looks to be another PS addition but the question is will he have competition when camp comes around? I would think that answer will be yes.
