The Miami Dolphins have named Ryan Fitzpatrick their starting quarterback for Week 1 against the Baltimore Ravens.
"After a thorough evaluation of OTAs, training camp, games, practice, we felt this was the best move for the team going into the season," Brian Flores said. "Ryan has done a really good job from a leadership standpoint, from an execution standpoint, and we feel like it's the best move for the team."
Fitzpatrick gets the nod over Josh Rosen, who the Dolphins acquired in a trade with the Arizona Cardinals this offseason.
"I know I have more confidence in myself than anybody in the world," Fitzpatrick said. "Sometimes that's a detriment, but a lot of times that works in my favor. I'm always confident in who I am and what I am as a player. This is where I wanted to be and what I worked to get."
