After what they went through last season, the Miami Dolphins wasted no time getting a top-notch insurance plan for quarterback Tua Tagovailoa.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Dolphins are adding one of their rival’s former quarterbacks by signing former Jets QB Mike White to a two-year contract. The report indicates that the deal is worth up to $16-million.
Last season the Dolphins were forced to rely on rookie Skylar Thompson for their Wild Card playoff match-up with the Buffalo Bills. Tagovailoa was dealing with concussion issues while backup Jacoby Brissett was also ruled out for the game with an injury.
Tua is said to be out of concussion protocol by now, but this signing by the Dolphins makes it clear that they want a reliable option in place, just in case they get another repeat of 2022, when Tua missed four regular season games and one postseason contest due to head injuries.
