Miami Dolphins Make Unexpected 2020 Quarterback Decision
The Miami Dolphins made an unexpected 2020 quarterback decision this week.
Apparently the team has decided to bring Ryan Fitzpatrick back next season and install him as the team’s starter.
Fitzpatrick briefly lost the starting gig to Josh Rosen this past year, before ultimately getting it back in Week 7.
In 2019, Fitzpatrick went 5-8 as a starter and amassed 3,529 yards, 20 scores and 13 picks for the season.
In an interview with the Miami Herald’s Adam Beasley, Dolphins general manager Chris Grier indicated that he “fully expects” Fitzpatrick to be a member of the team come next year.

Fitzpatrick was drafted in 2004 by the St. Louis Rams. Since then, he has bounced around to eight different NFL teams.
Many believe that the Dolphins will ultimately select a quarterback with the No. 5 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.
Thus far the organization has been linked to both Alabama’s Tua Tagovailoa and Oregon’s Justin Herbert.
There has also been some chatter about Miami possibly moving up and trying to select LSU’s Joe Burrow, but that seems unlikely at this stage.
Either way, regardless of what happens in the future, it looks like Fitzpatrick will likely be the Dolphins’ quarterback come Week 1 next season.
