Dolphins claim Bryce Petty off waivers

The Dolphins went through the draft without adding a quarterback, but picked up a leftover from a familiar foe who did.

Via Field Yates of ESPN, the Dolphins claimed Bryce Petty off waivers from the Jets.

Petty was the odd man out after the Jets took Sam Darnold with the third overall pick. They still have too many, and some guys who have done far less than Petty.

He started seven games over two seasons with the Jets, with a 57.7 rating that can’t be all his fault.

In Miami, he joins Brock Osweiler and David Fales, which means they’re putting all their faith in Ryan Tannehill coming back from his knee injury and returning to form.

  1. Lmao. Oh lord. Gotta love that front office. Good job Mike.

    Claiming a veteran QB with a salary of $705,000k this season to be a camp arm and to see if he can compete for a 2nd or 3rd string position….I’d say that’s a pretty smart pickup.

  2. What!?! LMAO Miami fans how can you tolerate this FO?

    Us Niners fans started to shame the owner’s son to turn it around by flying banners over the stadium.

    Good luck

  3. Oh yeah… lets troll the Dolphins because they signed a Camp Arm for League Minimum. I am sure if he was signed by the Bills or Patriots you all would singing his praises. Got news for you… Petty and Osweiler never got a real shot to play on a team that had a chance and that may even be the same here in Miami. However, maybe, just maybe they are good enough to be a Backup. No way is every QB the Jets had for the past 20 years that bad or a bust. Heck, Pennington came to the Dolphins and won in the Playoffs in the first year out of that cesspool. I have an idea… maybe the Jets are the problem. I bet poor Darnold finds this out quickly.

  4. It’s funny when teams claim a player and random fans act as if the claiming team just picked up a starter for their roster. I guess most fans don’t know that teams need 90 players for camp and not all of them are retained.

  5. Great pick-up for Miami. Would not be surprised to see Petty the starting Dolphin QB in September.

  6. Maybe he will at least get a better chance than he got from the Jets…
    Could be a serviceable backup with a good qb coach…

  7. “which means they’re putting all their faith in Ryan Tannehill coming back from his knee injury and returning to form.”

    Ain’t that the truth. They’re screwed if any of those other guys gets on the field except in practice and the preseason.

    Yet on March 16 when Pats picked up free DE Adrian Clayborn, prob a far more useful depth signing than Petty, scmems07 (at 7:07 pm) said: ‘This must be another one of those “brilliant” moves by Bilicheat.’ Nothing more ludicrous than a salty troll saltily whining about trolls.

  9. Great! At least Miami can make better use of Petty than “Gangrene” (The Jets) did.

    Ossweiler had plenty of opportunity. And if by “team with a chance” you mean “playoffs”, then with the Dolphins Petty is still missing out

  11. Petty has some talent but his time with the Jets was marked by an ineffective team around him. Could turn out okay,

  12. Just remember. Not one fan was singing the decision when the Eagles landed Foles. Just remember that. Different situation can change results.

  13. For those dissing the Jets saying now Petty will get a chance… Did you actually see him either of the past two years? Good guy and I really wanted him to do well and the Jets did give him a chance. But he can’t play.

    A Dolphins team putting in a waiver claim for a QB and his $705k salary who likely won’t even make the team is a bit different than a Patriots team signing a FA to a $6 mil a year contract. Especially since the Patriots had recently traded a 2nd Rd pick to the Panthers for a DE that was labeled a “brilliant” move, then promptly cut that DE shortly after. Then, in another “brilliant” move they trade a 5th and 7th Rd pick to Seattle for another DE and cut him 2 months later.

    But you keep telling yourself whatever you need to make you feel better big guy.

  15. Being a Jet fan I wanted Bryce Petty to be successful. After three years on the Jets he started the last three games last year. He looked awful.I knew he would be cut before Hackenberg who has never played a down. I am sure Hack, unless a miracle happens is not far behind being cut loose.

  16. I’m still recovering from the Ireland/Parcells era. The two who were responsible for horrible talent acquisitions. Jake Long OT who is out of football was chosen over Matt Ryan; Matt is good enough to be anyone’s franchise quarterback and the Dolphins are still looking for one. I believe this current brain trust did the best they could being in ‘Cap Hell’ and lacking enough talent to make the playoffs. They will all be fired if they don’t win this next season. Gase the quarterback guru was wrong on Cutler and might be wrong on going with Tannehill and Osweiler so having as many options as possible may work for him. Gase has chosen to run with quarterbacks who are familiar with his system and who have played for him. Time will tell weather doing so gets him fired.
