What can the Dolphins expect from rookie QB Luke Falk?
Before we get started Miami Dolphins T-Shirt , know this.The Dolphins currently have four quarterbacks on their 53-man roster.Ryan Tannehill is the starting quarterback and if anything were to happen to him, the season would be over.Period.And over the course of preseason, both David Fales and Brock Osweiler have had their ups and downs.However, head coach Adam Gase has a soft spot for both players, therefore, they are both currently on the active roster.But what about the Dolphins newest quarterback, Luke Falk?Falk was claimed off of waivers early Sunday afternoon and fans are abuzz about the latest move.Do the Dolphins need a fourth quarterback on the active roster?Absolutely not.Is he a young quarterback that can be groomed on the practice squad Miami Dolphins Hats , with hopes of someday being the backup quarterback to Ryan Tannehill?Oui.First, it must be noted that Luke Falk was drafted in the 6th-round, 199th overall by the Tennessee Titans.You know what future Hall of Fame quarterback was also drafted 199th overall?His name was Tom Brady.Coincidence, I think not.It is also worth noting that the Dolphins met with Falk several times throughout the draft process, and it appeared he was a quarterback that Adam Gase and Company fancied.Couple that with his knowledge of the Titan’s offense, made him an easy target for Miami on waivers.Here is the bio on Luke Falkper NFL.comAll of that is well and good, but what does the tape say?Let’s dive into the film and see what Luke Falk did this preseason.And why Dolphin fans should be excited about the potential of grooming a young quarterback for the future.FILMConclusionI don’t think there is any chance the Dolphins keep four quarterbacks on the active roster.Zero.In fact , it is a near certainty that the team will waive Luke Falk after the Titan’s game, in hopes of signing him to the team’s practice squad for the upcoming season. It is also possible that Adam Gase was just doing his best Bill Belichick impersonation, and claimed the rookie quarterback for intel.Nevertheless, the odds of Falk being on the active 53-man roster after Week 1, is slim to none. There is no denying Luke Falk played fairly wellduring preseason.Sure, he has a very long way to go before being active on game day.But Adam Gase has once been called a “quarterback whisper”. Does Gase have what it takes to groom Luke Falk into a viable NFL quarterback?Time will tell.This article was written by Josh Houtz.

The Redskins enter the night coming off of their bye week having won two of their three games this season. Washington opened the season with a win over the horrible Arizona Cardinals before dropping their second game to the Indianapolis Colts before defeating the Green Bay Packers in week three. Like the Redskins, who sit in first place in their division the Saints enter the night in first place as well. The Saints lost their week one game in a shootout against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers by a score of 48 to 40.
