A move by the Miami Dolphins may signal they're all-in on Tua Tagovailoa for 2020
The Miami Dolphins recently traded QB Ryan Tannehill to the Tennessee Titans, leaving an opening at their starting quarterback position.
However, it appears they’ll wait a year to address the position through the NFL Draft, as they signed journeyman QB Ryan Fitzpatrick to a contract on Sunday.
Per ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Dolphins are angling to be in position to draft Alabama QB Tua Tagovailoa in 2020:
And so the Dolphins add former Buccaneers’ QB Ryan Fitzpatrick for 2019, with eyes on Alabama QB Tua Tagovaiola for 2020.

Fitzpatrick’s contract is reportedly for two years and $11 million, so perhaps the team wants him to start in 2019 and then help mentor Tagovailoa in 2020.
Will the Dolphins’ plans work out? Or, will fans grow frustrated by the team seemingly already planning to tank in 2019?
