Fitzpatrick’s status in Miami in 2020 had been under some question, with the long-time veteran not ruling out retirement and the Dolphins potentially looking at taking a quarterback with one of their three first-round picks this year.
After beating out Josh Rosen to start Week 1, Fitzpatrick earned his job back again after Rosen struggled when inserted into the lineup. It’s possible Fitzpatrick could play the same bridge quarterback role for a rookie in 2020.
Fitzpatrick, 37, is a former seventh-round pick of the Rams back in 2005. He’s played for several teams over the course of his 13-year NFL career including the Bengals, Bills, Titans, Texans and Jets before he signed on with the Buccaneers last year.
The Dolphins signed Fitzpatrick to a two-year contract worth $11 million contract last March.
In 2019, Fitzpatrick appeared in 15 games and completed 62 percent of his passes for 3,529 yards, 20 touchdowns and 13 interceptions. He also rushed 54 times for 243 yards and four touchdowns.
