Although Miami Dolphins free agent QB Tyler Thigpen wants to play for a team where he has a chance to start, he could be a backup QB option for the Bills in 2011. The new CBA rules, when there is a new CBA however could complicate his ability to move to another club.
Dolphins GM Jeff Ireland on Thursday addressed his team’s quarterback situation, and indicated that if Thigpen is deemed a restricted free agent under the new CBA rules that they would bring him back. That according to the Palm Beach Post.
If he qualifies as an unrestricted free agent the report indicates that the Dolphins would let him sign elsewhere.
Thigpen has a history with Bills head coach Chan Gailey when Gailey ran Kansas City’s offense with Thigpen as the starter in 2008.
Buffalo’s backup quarterback in 2010, Brian Brohm is expected to be a restricted free agent this offseason depending on what the new CBA rules will be.
