Brandon Doughty clears waivers; headed to Dolphins practice squad

Coach Adam Gase got all under cover and secretive Thursday when he was asked who the team's No. 3 quarterback would be Sunday at New England seeing as that Brandon Doughty was cut the day before.

“We have a plan. We had one last week," Gase said. "I don’t have to tell you guys that one. But, I mean we’ve been working on it since training camp. You guys just didn’t notice."

Fine, I guess I shouldn't tell you tight end Marqueis Gray was the Minnesota Golden Gophers starting quarterback in 2011. I shouldn't tell you Tony Lippett was a high school QB. And I shouldn't tell you Jarvis Landry messed around taking snaps from center during camp.

Anyway, the Dolphins have a plan for Sunday but during the week they will have three quarterbacks on the practice field again because Doughty slipped through waivers unclaimed. And the team has re-signed him to the practice squad, per an NFL source.

This is good because that means the Dolphins continue to have Doughty in the system and learning and improving (hopefully) with some idea that at the time being no other team is looking to pick the rookie up.
