Fitzpatrick agrees to $11 million, 2-year deal with Miami

For the third time in his career, Ryan Fitzpatrick will be a starting quarterback in the AFC East.

Fitzpatrick was 164-of-246 for 2,366 yards, 17 touchdowns and 12 interceptions during the 2018 season.

Fitzpatrick regained the starting job midway through the season and had another 400-yard performance in a 16-3 loss against the Washington Redskins, helping him tie the National Football League record of four 400-yard passing performance in a season previously shared by Dan Marino and Peyton Manning. In fact, Fitzpatrick played at a high level from Weeks 1 to 3 - leading the Buccaneers to huge victories over the New Orleans Saints and Philadelphia Eagles while starter Jameis Winston served a three-game suspension.

The Dolphins traded quarterback Ryan Tannehill earlier this week to the Tennessee Titans. With Alabama's Tua Tagovailoa looming as a probable top draft pick next season, the Dolphins have said they are thinking longer term than just this season.

More acts have yet to be announced for Glastonbury Festival 2019 which takes place on June 26 to 30. The festival plans to announce more artists ahead of its kick off the last week of June.

Fitzpatrick could become Miami's 20th starting quarterback since Dan Marino retired following 1999 season. Of course, Fitzpatrick will have a strong veteran presence in the locker room and could mentor the young signal-caller.

In 2015, Fitzpatrick threw for over 30 touchdowns and almost 4,000 yards with the New York Jets, and he's always been great at hooking up with deep threats or big receivers on the outside.

Fitzpatrick, who has also played for the Rams, Bengals, Bills, Titans, Texans and Jets, has thrown for 29,357 yards with 190 touchdowns and 148 interceptions in 141 games.
