Coach Adam Gase’s new backup quarterback in Miami is his former backup quarterback in Denver.
Brock Osweiler signed a one-year contract Friday with the Dolphins to provide veteran insurance behind Ryan Tannehill Joel Iyiegbuniwe Jersey , who is coming back from two knee operations.
Gase was an assistant with the Broncos when Osweiler was a young reserve for them in 2012-14. Osweiler went 0-4 as the Broncos’ starter last season and has 25 career starts in six NFL seasons.
With the Dolphins he replaces Matt Moore, a free agent after seven years as their backup quarterback. Despite adding Osweiler, the Dolphins will consider drafting a quarterback next month.
Tannehill is expected to return after missing all of the 2017 season, but he has twice had surgery since his most recent game.
The Dolphins made two other moves to upgrade their offense. Five-time Pro Bowl running back Frank Gore finalized a deal with his hometown team after agreeing to terms Thursday. Tackle Sam Young agreed to terms on a one-year contract to remain with the Dolphins, two people familiar with the negotiations said.
Young, an eight-year NFL veteran Ryan Kelly Jersey , started six games at right tackle for the Dolphins last year after Ja’Wuan James was hurt. He’s expected to be James’ backup again this season.
Chicago Cubs pitching prospect Oscar De La Cruz has been suspended 80 games under Major League Baseball’s drug program.
The commissioner’s office said Friday that the 23-year-old right-hander tested positive for Furosemide, a diuretic and masking agent.
De La Cruz is 6-7 with a 5.24 ERA in 16 starts this season at Double-A Tennessee, and is considered among the Cubs’ top prospects. He is covered under the major league drug program because he is on the 40-man major league roster and is on option to Tennessee.
The Cubs say that while they are ”disappointed” in De La Cruz, they ”will support him on his journey back.”
He is the ninth player suspended this year under the big league drug program. The others are Seattle All-Star second baseman Robinson Cano, Chicago White Sox catcher Welington Castillo Denzelle Good Jersey , Houston pitcher Dean Deetz, Washington catcher Raudy Read, Pittsburgh pitcher Nik Turley, Kansas City outfielder Jorge Bonifacio, Toronto pitcher Thomas Pannone and Minnesota shortstop Jorge Polanco.
There have been 46 players suspended this year under the minor league drug program.
