The Dolphins say they want to build for the future and everyone knows they are going through a rebuild phase. The rumors were that the team would be looking to draft one of the top quarterback prospects in next years draft, but maybe they won’t have to. The Dolphins acquired Josh Rosen from the Cardinals and the move has many fans excited. But according to Brian Flores, Ryan Fitzpatrick will likely start the third preseason game, meaning he is likely the starter heading into the season. But it makes no sense when you can spend the whole season evaluating Rosen and making a quarterback decision after the season has concluded.

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