The Miami Dolphins opted for major franchise changes this offseason as their playoff drought bolted to a fifth year. Mike McDaniel was hired was the team's next head coach and he's made it clear the team will move forward with Tua Tagovailoa at quarterback.
This current team structure wasn't always the only plan, however, as a recent report revealed the Dolphins had even bigger changes outlined heading into next season. This previous idea involved two of the biggest names in the NFL.
Tom Brady Dolphins
A report on ProFootballTalk Live revealed Miami's interest in pursuing Sean Payton to be the team's next head coach and Tom Brady as starting quarterback or minority owner.
There's no indication if Brady and Payton were aware of these proposed plans, but those sort of wholesale changes would have dominated the NFL offseason news cycle. Ultimately both Brady and Payton announced their respective retirements, then the Brian Flores lawsuit came about, and the Dolphins opted in their current direction rallying behind McDaniel and Tua.
Brady has been linked to the Dolphins for several years now, mainly because of his friendship with Bruce Beal, a significant limited partner and potential successor to owner Stephen Ross.
McDaniel heads into his first year at the helm with the perfect attitude, rallying behind and offering relenting support for the current QB1 on his roster, Tua Tagovailoa.
