Miami Dolphins sign veteran quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick

The Miami Dolphins didn’t look far to replace Ryan Tannehill as the team’s starting quarterback. In fact, the team didn’t even have to leave the state.

According to a league source, Ryan Fitzpatrick, a 14-year veteran who spent the past two seasons with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, signed a contract on Sunday with Miami, making the Dolphins the third AFC East team the former Harvard standout will play for.

Terms of the contract were not immediately available.

Fitzpatrick replaces Tannehill, who was traded to the Tennessee Titans on Friday in a deal that swapped late-round picks in 2019, and will send Miami a 2020 fourth-round selection.
