Fitzpatrick spent the 2017 and 2018 seasons as a backup with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and now gets the opportunity for a starting role once again.Earlier this week, the Dolphins traded former starting quarterback Ryan Tannehill to the Tennessee Titans for a fourth and sixth-round pick. Tannehill’s exit opened the door for Fitzpatrick to take over as the starter.After signing Fitzpatrick the Dolphins reportedly have their eyes on next year’s draft. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the team looks to be all-in on Alabama star quarterback Tua Tagovailoa.“And so the Dolphins add former Buccaneers’ QB Ryan Fitzpatrick for 2019, with eyes on Alabama QB Tua Tagovaiola for 2020,” Schefter said.And so the Dolphins add former Buccaneers’ QB Ryan Fitzpatrick for 2019, with eyes on Alabama QB Tua Tagovaiola for 2020.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) March 17, 2019While the Dolphins might be looking ahead to next year’s draft, signing Fitzpatrick might not be the best thing to ensure a high draft pick.The former Harvard star isn’t the best quarterback in the NFL, but he’s good for a few wins a season. Miami doesn’t want to play itself out of a top pick in the 2020 draft, but Fitzpatrick might have something to say about that.Miami won’t be the only team tanking for Tua in 2019.last_img
