Shortly after the news that Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill re-injured his knee, speculation began circulating about Browns QB Brock Osweiler being an option for Miami, considering that he worked with Adam Gase while in Denver.
Osweiler tells Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer that he’s “really not” thinking about the possibility of ending up with the Dolphins. Although, Osweiler had nothing but great things to say about Gase.
“Adam had a huge impact,” Osweiler said. “It was a little bit of tough love at first. As a rookie, you come in and you’re riding high on this wave and you just had a great college season, you just got drafted and then you get humbled a little bit, but I have nothing but love and appreciation for Adam Gase because through that tough love at times, I realized he was doing that to me to make me a better player, to get me prepared to play in the NFL. Adam Gase is one of the most brilliant minds in football regardless of the level. He’s a tremendous coach and he’s always working with people, striving to become a better coach, and he was just a great person to be around.”
- The Los Angeles Chargers announced Friday that they’ve waived C Dillon DeBoer with an injury designation to make room for OL Barrett Gouger, who was signed to a contract after he tried out for them.
Dolphins HC Adam Gase told reporters on Friday that there’s currently no timetable for a determination regarding QB Ryan Tannehill and his knee injury.
Gase did, however, say that “everything is on the table right now.‘
“Everything’s on the table right now. We’re going to talk to a lot of people,” Gase said, via Pro Football Talk. “There’s no timetable. Right now, Matt [Moore] is our quarterback. We’ll see where we go from there because I’ve got to figure out what’s going on with Ryan, and we’ll make decisions after that.”
As for backup QB Matt Moore, he explained that he’s been in this position before and is focused on help the Dolphins win games this season.
“This is part of my role,” Moore said, via Joe Schad of the Palm Beach Post. “I’ve done this before, in stepping up and being ready, if need be. That’s what I know. And that’s kind of the attitude I have moving forward. … When you get a chance to have more than 11 guys actually play in games, it does a lot for confidence, so especially at the quarterback position, I’ve gotten to play with a lot of these guys with live bullets. It’s good. And we’re just focused now on getting better, whoever is in there, getting better together and just moving forward.”
