Free agent quarterback market and the Miami Dolphins
By Brian Miller
There are still plenty of options for the Miami Dolphins, even if they don’t make a lot of sense. Miami needs experience and availability more than upside and potential.
Which direction should the Dolphins go in? There are more options than those listed above. Miami could dive a little deeper into the pool and find a quarterback that can walk onto the field, play well enough not to lose, and keep their fingers crossed for Tua to get back on the field.
Mike White – White played decent enough in New York. At least better than Zach Wilson. Is he a great QB? No. Does he expect to start? Maybe but he won’t land that job this year. Is he a great option? Not really.
Chad Henne – Henne is the perfect backup honestly but his age, 37, is prohibitive. Chances are, he stays in Kansas City. They like him there and he knows his role well.
Mason Rudolph – Rudolph has starting experience and is viewed as a backup now. He likely won’t stay in Pittsburgh and isn’t likely to get a call to start or even compete for a starting role elsewhere. He is a pretty good option for Miami that could offer the potential of playing time.
Kyle Allen – Everything in Houston was a mess this year and that should make teams at least a little leery of any QB from that squad right now. But…he is an option.
What will the Miami Dolphins do? That is anyone’s guess right now but they need to add someone. The Dolphins can’t afford to lose Tua for any length of time and expect to compete in 2023. Miami has the 2nd toughest schedule in the NFL next year and every game could be critical.
