The Splash Zone 7/5/20: Dolphins Still Looking For Their Next Marino

Dan Marino retired back in 1995 and the Dolphins quarterback situation has been a mess since then. For whatever reason, the Dolphins did not spend a first round pick on a quarterback until the 2012 draft where they drafted Ryan Tannehill. Two months ago, the team hopefully selected their next franchise quarterback in Tua Tagovailoa, who is a much better prospect than Tannehill was when he came out. Marino retired as one of the greatest of all time and hopefully Tua ends that cursed drought the Dolphins and their fans have endured for the past 20 years.

You can check out that story here, and the rest of the day’s round-up below.
