The journeyman quarterback spent the 2019 e 2020 seasons with the Miami Dolphins. L'anno scorso, he managed to play in nine games but was eventually replaced as a starter for Tua Tagovailoa – who is thought to be the future at quarterback for the Dolphins.

He finished with 2,091 cantieri di passaggio, 13 touchdowns and a 4-3 record as a starter.

He joined Washington and Ron Rivera and beat out Heinicke for the starting job.
