The Miami Dolphins attempted to trade for Matthew Stafford before the 2018 season.

Adam Gase wanted to replace Ryan Tannehill at quarterback with an upgrade. Gase reached out to Matt Patricia personally about a potential deal.

Talks never reached a serious point but it is believed the Dolphins would have at least offered their own 2018 first round pick.

Tannehill was traded to the Tennessee Titans last week for a fourth-round pick in the 2020 draft.
