Quarterback Pat Devlin signed with the Miami Dolphins, after initial media reports indicated he may be headed to the Arizona Cardinals.

Devlin, who reportedly signed a three-year contract, joins Miami incumbent starter ChadHenne and Tom Brandstater, a third-year pro out of Fresno State who has not appeared in a regular-season game. The Dolphins are expected to acquire a veteran. Devlin followed in the footsteps of Joe Flacco at Delaware and has a similar history. Flacco went to the Fightin’ Blue Hens after washing out at Pittsburgh. Devlin was originally at Penn State after setting a Pennsylvania high school career passing record with 8,162 yards. Devlin spent two years at Penn State.

Devlin was the first overall selection in the UFL draft after being passed by the NFL but he declined to sign a contract. Good call!

The Dolphins apparently beat out several other teams in trying to get Devlin, including the Indianapolis Colts this is bad for Van Camp whose agent was supposedly speaking to the Dolphins Monday. I doubt the club would bring both Van Camp and Devlin to camp so Devlin gets the nod. Obviously, we’re talking practice squad or No. 3 QBs here, folks.
