Dolphins cutting quarterback Brandon Doughty

The Dolphins swear they’re committed to starting quarterback Ryan Tannehill, but they’re doing all their homework on this year’s draft class.

So there isn’t room for everyone.

According to Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald, the Dolphins are releasing quarterback Brandon Doughty.

The 2016 seventh-rounder from Western Kentucky has spent the last two years on the practice squad.

The Dolphins have shown plenty of interest in Baker Mayfield, but have also been looking at quarterbacks who could come later than the first round (bringing Luke Falk in for a visit), as they work to improve the position.

They let longtime backup Matt Moore walk as a free agent, and though they’ve signed Brock Osweiler and David Fales, there’s no reason to think they don’t want to upgrade, even if it’s just for a backup.

  1. Teams typically carry 4 QB through their offseason programs. It’s looking like they are definitely targeting a QB in this draft.

    Doughty lacks the arm strength to really be effective in the NFL. Surprising that he stuck around for 2 years.

  2. Good move as I never liked the Doughty pick it was a wasted roster spot. The Dolphins need to draft a quarterback to succeed Tannehill. Faulk has more upside than Doughty and would stay on the active roster. Thiers also other guys rhe doctor could pick, Do believe they will draft a quarterback.

  3. They should pick mason Rudolph in the first
    He is going to be a good one
    Good character and great stats and Sony michel in the second
    Rudolph could be the steal of the draft
    Good size
