Adam Gase Says He’s Comfortable with Miami Dolphins’ Backup Qb Situation
DAVIE, Fla. (AP) — Miami Dolphins coach Adam Gase says he likes his revamped roster, and that includes the quarterbacks who will compete this summer to back up Ryan Tannehill.
The Dolphins decided against drafting a quarterback , which leaves holdover David Fales and veteran newcomer Brock Osweiler to battle for the No. 2 job. Miami also signed veteran Bryce Petty as further insurance last week.
Gase, speaking Thursday before the start of a rookie minicamp, said he'd be comfortable turning to Fales or Osweiler this season if Tannehill were sidelined by an injury.
Bringing in an emergency replacement wouldn't be necessary, Gase said. Last year he coaxed Jay Cutler out of retirement after Tannehill suffered a knee injury that forced him to miss the entire season.
Osweiler signed a one-year contract in March after going 0-4 as the Denver Broncos' starter last season. Gase was an assistant with the Broncos when Osweiler was a young reserve for them in 2012-14.
