Quarterback Brady Quinn’s tenure with NFL teams seems to be getting shorter with each team. Quinn was cut by the Miami Dolphins on Tuesday.
“It was short lived but I enjoyed every second. Thank you Miami Dolphins for the opportunity to play the game I love again. Best of luck to all the players and coaches this season,” Quinn wrote.
This was likely Brady Quinn’s last shot to play in the NFL, but perhaps there is the possibility of another role for the former 2007 first-round pick. Before he was picked by the Dolphins, he said he was considering the jump to television. It’s a jump he’ll likely reconsider if the offer is still on the table.
Quinn has bounced around the league, playing for the Browns, Seahawks, Rams and Jets. He hasn’t completed a regular season pass since 2012. It would be his 7th year in the league, but did not record a single stat in 2010, 2011 and 2013. It appears he won’t in 2014 either. He has thrown for 3,043 yards, 12 touchdowns and 17 interceptions during his career. This may just be his NFL obituary.
The Dolphins will start with Ryan Tannehill at quarterback, followed by Matt Moore, who Brady Quinn was signed to fill in for due to injury. Moore will likely be the Dolphins backup as he appears health, having played in the Dolphins last preseason game.
