With Tua Tagovailoa out and no timetable set for his return, the Dolphins are adding another quarterback.

Head coach Mike McDaniel said in his Monday press conference that Miami is signing Reid Sinnett to its practice squad.

“That was something we prioritized over the weekend,” McDaniel said.

Sinnett entered the league in 2020 as an undrafted free agent with the Buccaneers. He then spent time with the Dolphins from 2020-2021, with the Eagles claiming him off waivers last October.

Philadelphia cut him at the end of August and re-signed him to the team’s practice squad. But they let him go in early September.

Sinnett has not appeared in a regular-season game so far in his career. He completed 52 percent of his passes for 254 yards with two touchdowns and one interception during the 2022 preseason with Philadelphia.

  1. Practice squad players make $11,500 per week ($207K total for 18 weeks) on the practice squad, and according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the median wage for workers in the United States in the second quarter of 2022 was about $1,041 per week or $54,132 per year. Therefore, I think the NFL needs to come up with a more respectable and fitting terminology for these players. I propose renaming the practice squad to The Auxiliary Force, The Secondary Column, The Aces in the Hole, The Fun Bunch, The Wing Men, or The Support Brigade.
