The Miami Dolphins reportedly tried to swing for the fences in finding a new quarterback.
The team reportedly made a big push to trade for Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford last year. The Miami Herald reports former coach Adam Gase was looking to upgrade the quarterback position in a big way when he reached out to Lions coach Matt Patricia about Stafford.
Patricia was on his first year on the job after leaving the Patriots and wasd reportedly open to all positions.
The report goes on to say that the talks never got serious enough where the Dolphins made an offer, but it was reported that Gase was ready to offer a first-round pick and probably more.
When it was all said and done, Patricia wasn’t willing to move Stafford.
Miami traded their starting quarterback Ryan Tannehill to the Tennessee Titans last week.
