The Miami Dolphins were in need of a new backup quarterback as Teddy Bridgewater became a free agent. The team moved quickly to secure the services of former New York Jet, Mike White. Earlier this offseason during an interview, White stated he wouldn’t mind playing for the Dolphins, his hometown team. White will compete with Skylar Thompson for backup QB duties and it will be interesting to see if the Dolphins carry three quarterbacks on the roster again.
