DAVIE, Fla. — The last time the Miami Dolphins had an open quarterback competition was 2012. The idea was twofold: the best man wins, and three guys in the running for the starting job would make each other better thus raising the level of the entire offense. The problem was the three-man competition never materialized.
David Garrard, the favorite, sustained a knee injury in training camp. That left a two-man competition between veteran Matt Moore, who rallied Miami to six wins in 2011, and rookie Ryan Tannehill, the No. 8 pick of the draft. The competition was close so it made more sense to give the job to the young guy.
Now the Dolphins are staging another quarterback competition. But beauty won’t be more seductive than age this time.
Coach Brian Flores has said as much. This will be a fair and open battle.
