Dolphins Claim QB Bryce Petty

The Dolphins have claimed quarterback Bryce Petty off of waivers, Field Yates of ESPN.com tweets. Petty was released by the Jets on Thursday, exposing him to the waiver wire. 

Petty was the victim of a number’s crunch in New York. The Jets are already committed to two QBs between No. 3 overall pick Sam Darnold and veteran Josh McCown while Teddy Bridgewater and Christian Hackenberg are among those battling for the final quarterback job.

The Dolphins, meanwhile, were in need of an extra arm for camp behind Ryan Tannehill, Brock Osweiler, and David Fales. Petty, who has one season left on his rookie contract, had some buzz behind him heading into the 2015 draft, so the Dolphins are at least curious to see what he can offer.

The Baylor product has gone 1-6 in seven NFL starts and is a career 53.1 percent passer with four touchdown passes against ten interceptions. The Dolphins have assumed Petty’s original rookie contract, which has one year remaining.

  1. not mentioned in the article, Bryce was picked in the 4th round of the 2015 draft. He was also released from my Madden franchise this past season due to low overall rating.
