According to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, the pre-free agency rumor going around is that the Dolphins are targeting Tyrod Taylor as their replacement for Ryan Tannehill, who’s expected to be released this offseason.
Florio mentions that it’s still possible the team could start a rookie, depending on what they elect to do in the draft.
Taylor would likely be a place-holder option for Miami if they elected to go this route.
Taylor, 29, is a former sixth-round pick of the Ravens back in 2011. After four years in Baltimore, Taylor signed on with the Bills for the 2015 season. Buffalo elected to trade Taylor to the Browns for a third-round pick last year.
Taylor played out the final year of a two-year, $30.5 million contract and is in now in position to be an unrestricted free agent this offseason.
In 2018, Taylor appeared in four games and thrown for 473 yards while completing 49.4 percent of his passes to go along with two touchdowns and two interceptions. He has also rushed for 125 yards and a touchdown.
