The Miami Dolphins are reportedly planning to either trade or release Ryan Tannehill in the near future, but they are quickly running out of replacement options for the quarterback. Next up on the list could be Tyrod Taylor.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that Taylor is now one of the “top targets” for the Dolphins after Teddy Bridgewater opted to remain with the New Orleans Saints.

Bridgewater is said to have turned down more money from Miami to remain with the Saints because he grew to love the locker room culture in New Orleans and believes he can one day become the starter there. With him now off the market and Nick Foles having agreed to a deal with the Jacksonville Jaguars, the Dolphins are apparently turning their attention toward Taylor.

It’s possible that Miami could decide to keep Tannehill, but it doesn’t sound like may teams across the league consider him a starting-caliber quarterback anymore. That said, you could certainly have a debate over whether or not Taylor would be an upgrade over Tannehill.
