ns‘ caretaker quarterback.The well-traveled veteran agreed to terms Sunday on an $11 million Xavien Howard Jersey , two-year contract as a replacement to Ryan Tannehill and a placeholder until the Dolphins can draft their franchise quarterback.

The Dolphins and new coach Brian Flores have the 13th choice in the April draft, and might devote their first-round pick to a QB for only the second time since taking Marino in 1984.Fitzpatrick has thrown for 190 touchdowns and 29,357 yards, but has been inconsistent and turnover-prone.

He said that he’d “love it to be two years,” but added that he’s realistic that the task facing head coach Brian Flores and General Manager Chris Grier may require going through pain before pleasure.“If I have to get [pain], yeah,” Ross said, via the . “I want to win all the time but sometimes you’ve got take a little pain, recognizing the facts — we’re a young team, we’re drafting Mark Duper Jersey , we’re not signing all these guys. It’s all going to be the talent. That’s what it is at the end of the day, finding guys who are motivated, who want to play ball. It’s not all about money, it’s about winning.

For now, though, everyone in Miami is on the same page about the right way to move forward.
