The Miami Dolphins need a quarterback and they wasted no time in getting one. Undrafted Delaware quarterback Pat Devlin was signed to a three year deal by the Miami Dolphins. Other teams were interested in Devlin, but with a good chance to start in Miami he took the Dolphins offer. Devlin will compete with Chad Henne for the Dolphins starting quarterback job. Henne has struggled at times and that is the main reason they signed Devlin to a contract.
Devlin put up some nice numbers at Delaware where he threw for over 3,000 yards and 22 touchdowns last season. He has decent size and a good arm. The Dolphins need stability at quarterback as Henne just has been too inconsistent as a starter. Miami needs someone who can lead them, and not make the mistakes at critical points in the game. At times Henne looked great, but he would always make that critical mistake when you least can afford it.
