The Miami Dolphins quarterback position has changed since our first predictions.
- 4: Tua Tagovailoa
- 5: Teddy Bridgewater
- 6: Skylar Thompson
We all knew that Tagavailoa was not “competing” with Bridgewater but for the most part, Tua had a solid training camp and Teddy-B was a bit quieter. To be honest, I was a bit surprised by how little we heard from the mainstream media about Bridgewater.
Many have speculated that Bridgewater could be a tradeable asset and maybe that is the case before the trade deadline should another NFL team suddenly need a starting caliber QB but for now, he is expected to be the backup and insurance policy to Tua. His camp wasn’t bad, it just wasn’t enough to really compete against Tua.
The surprise here is, of course, Skylar Thompson.
Thompson has played very well in camp and through preseason but was it enough to earn a roster spot? Yes but the Dolphins would be more thrilled to keep him on the practice squad. Unfortunately, Thompson has shown enough that he may not clear waivers if he is released and because of that, Miami’s only option may be to keep him on the final 53. It will come with the cost of another player being let go.
