Reports state that the Dolphins are entering a rebuild mode and would like to draft one of the top quarterback prospects in the 2020 draft. The team is eyeing a top 10 pick which means this team is gonna have to be pretty bad this upcoming season. Ryan Tannehill is expected to be on a new team in the coming months, which would leave the Dolphins with David Fales, Luke Falk, and Jake Rudock. If the team were to enter the season with these three, it’s fairly obvious the team is tanking. The team is looking towards the future and that’s great. But fans would be calling for Brian Flores’ head after a bad season and the man deserves a chance to bring winning football back to Miami.

You can check out that story here, and the rest of the day’s round-up below.
