Morning take: Brady Quinn factor

Here are the most interesting Miami Dolphins stories Tuesday from around the Web:

  • Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald writes new Dolphins quarterback Brady Quinn returns to the team that passed him up in 2007.

Morning take: There were a lot of Dolphins fans who wanted Miami to draft Quinn over Ted Ginn Jr. Neither player panned out, but the Dolphins at least get another chance to work with Quinn.

  • Omar Kelly of the Sun Sentinel reports cutting Dolphins backup quarterback Matt Moore for Quinn could save them $2.5 million.

Morning take: That is an interesting dilemma for Miami. Moore has been a valuable backup, but he makes $4 million this year. If Quinn is a capable backup, the Dolphins could make a financial decision.

  • Andrew Abramson of the Palm Beach Post writes rookie linebacker Jordan Tripp is competing for a starting job.

Morning take: It seems unlikely the Dolphins would start a rookie fifth-round pick at middle linebacker. But Tripp has shown good things in training camp and the preseason. Barring injury, he must earn his spot on special teams.

Morning take: Tannehill is certainly polarizing. There are evaluators who are fixated on his strengths and others who can’t get over his weaknesses. We will find out which side prevails in Year 3.
