At this point, the Miami Dolphins are going to be running out Shane Falco at quarterback next season.
After Miami made a last-ditch effort to sign Teddy Bridgewater , the New Orleans Saints quarterback announced Thursday he’ll be returning to the Bayou for another season backing up Drew Brees.
While this is a win for the Saints, it tells us just how bad things are in South Beach right now. Nick Foles was an option. He no longer is. Instead, he’s playing in Duval with the Jaguars. Tyrod Taylor was an option. He’s now backing up Philip Rivers in Southern California.
Maybe Miami turns back to a quarterback in Ryan Tannehill that it had already pretty much moved on from.
The simple fact that Bridgewater, 26, opted to back up Brees next season rather than being the likely starter in Miami tells us a lot about the Dolphins’ organization right now. Fins down, indeed.
As it relates to the Saints, they retain one of the game’s best backups. New Orleans had acquired Bridgewater from the New York Jets in a trade prior to the 2018 season. Whether his stay in the Bayou lasts beyond the 2019 season remains to be seen. But Teddy’s back.
