Ryan Fitzpatrick is more than capable of keeping the Dolphins in contention during games. The veteran quarterback knows Chan Gailey’s offense and the locker room loves him. Though I know many fans are excited to see Tua Tagovailoa start for their favorite team but wouldn’t it be wise to follow a plan similar to what Patrick Mahomes went through? Sit your rookie year and then take the league by storm the following year, sounds like an awesome plan. Now if Tua was healthy, I could see him entering the lineup by the halfway point of the season. But with him recovering from a devastating hip injury, wouldn’t it just be wise to let him rehab and learn the offense for a year on the bench?

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