Meet Your New Dolphins Quarterback: Pat Devlin

Categories: Sports

The Miami Dolphins wasted no post-lockout time addressing their plagued quarterback situation. They've already signed Pat Devlin, a QB out of the FCS-division University of Delaware. Hopefully the undrafted rookie free agent won't be the only move the 'Fins make at QB, but the team believed in him enough to sign him to a reported three-year contract.

As a fifth year senior, Devlin lead the Delaware Blue Hens all the way to the FCS championship game, and racked up 5,696 yards and 38 touchdowns in his two years with the team after transferring from Penn State.

Devlin had entered the NFL draft, and at least one NFL network analyst, Mike Mayock, believed he was one of the top ten QBs in the draft, but the former Blue Hen's contractual eggs went uncollected.

The 6-foot-3, 225-pound Devlin was said to have been contacted by many teams on Monday night, but decided that the Dolphins were the best option. Probably because as of right now, he'd only be competing for playing time with Chad Henne. That might change as the 'Fins look at veteran QBs, and the guy doesn't seem to be the immediate solution to the offense problems. That being said, he has the potential to develop into a solid player.

Good guy. Watched him play HS football. Owns the passing yard record for a PA. high school quarterbacks. More then Namath, Marino, Montana, etc. He was promised something at PSU and when he didn't start, transferred to Del. Miami, you're gonna love him!!!

Forgot to mention that Devlin initially committed to the U before backing out to stay close to home.

I believe U had a head coach change and brought in Randy Shannon.  Based on the change Devlin changed an went to PSU.   An intelligent heads up guy!

He didn't backout to stay closer to home, Miami fired the coaches that had been courting him.

Vince Young is clutch--he's a little bit of a head-trip, but he's better than Palmer.
