Since the Miami Dolphins are going to be looking for a new quarterback this offseason, why not add multiple prospects and let them battle it out during the preseason?
What I'm proposing is, the Dolphins could trade for a player like Kevin Kolb or Kyle Orton, or they could draft a rookie like Ryan Mallett or Colin Kaepernick, and then they could trade with Green Bay for the Packers backup quarterback Matt Flynn.
I believe that scenario could actually be a very good one for the Dolphins. Flynn would be relatively cheap to trade for, and he would be more than able to battle it out with whoever else during the preseason for Miami's starting quarterback position.
Flynn is a young and talented prospect that, I think, has the ability to be a starter in the NFL. He already showed us a little bit of what he is capable of last season when he started for an injured Aaron Rodgers against the New England Patriots. In that game he threw for 251 yards, 3 touchdowns, 1 interception, and had a 100.2 passer rating. Those are numbers that Aaron Rodgers would put up, and Flynn was able to put up those numbers without much work at all as Green Bay's starter.
I believe that Flynn could be a great investment, and the best part of this whole scenario is that Miami wouldn't even have to rely completely on Flynn. He could compete with whomever else the Dolphins add, and the QB who does the best will be named the starter. Miami wouldn't have to pay Flynn much, so they would hardly be taking any risk at all by trading for him.
We will see if the Miami Dolphins do show any interest in Flynn. I hope they do, but I'm not sure whether they actually will.
Thanks for reading, and let me hear your thoughts on Flynn and him going to Miami.
