  Miami coach Brian Flores' family is ready for Tua Tagovailoa to step in as the Dolphins' starting quarterback, but Flores said there's a long way to go before that happens. "I'll say my kids are expecting him (to start)," Flores said during an online press conference after the Dolphins selected the Alabama quarterback with the fifth pick in the 85th NFL Draft on Thursday night. "They're big fans. They were excited to get on the phone call with him. But, look, we haven't even seen him, obviously, with the pandemic and all that's going on. Our doctors haven't seen him, so we've a long way to go before we can say who's doing what. We'd like to just get him and have a meeting first.

"I think it's way too early to speculate on this year and how this is going to go. You guys know we like to take a one-day-at-a-time approach anyway. That's going to be the approach I'm going to have him take as well." The Dolphins have two quarterbacks with experience as NFL starters on their roster. Fifteen-year veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick started 13 games for Miami last season. As the Dolphins' leading passer and rusher in 2019, he led Miami to victory in five of their final nine games after the team started 0-7 - a level of play seemingly at odds with the "Tanking for Tua" tag hung on the team as it traded regulars out of its lineup for draft picks. Josh Rosen started at quarterback in the other three 2019 games for Miami. Rosen was the 10th player picked in the 2018 NFL Draft and started 13 games for Arizona as a rookie. The Cardinals replaced him with Kyler Murray, the No. 1 pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. - Birmingham News
