The Dolphins have issued a contract tender to quarterback Pat Devlin, reports Jason La Canfora of CBSSports.com (via Twitter). As an exclusive rights free agent, Devlin has to accept the offer if he wants to play in the NFL next season.
As Miami’s third-string quarterback behind Ryan Tannehill and Matt Moore, Devlin is better known for his role in HBO’s Hard Knocks than his accomplishments as an NFL signal-caller. Since signing with the Dolphins as an undrafted free agent out of Delaware in 2011, the 25-year-old has yet to see any regular-season NFL action.
Still, Joe Philbin and the Dolphins seem to like Devlin enough to give him a chance to stick around for another season. The young QB figures to earn the minimum salary of $570K for 2014.
