The journeyman quarterback spent the 2019 and 2020 seasons with the Miami Dolphins. Last year, he managed to play in nine games but was eventually replaced as a starter for Tua Tagovailoa – who is thought to be the future at quarterback for the Dolphins.

He finished with 2,091 passing yards, 13 touchdowns and a 4-3 record as a starter.
