The Facts: On the first day of Dolphins training camp, Fitzpatrick tightened his grasp on the starting quarterback job. The Dolphins enter camp with two new quarterbacks in town -- Fitzpatrick, a career journeyman who signed as a free agent, and Josh Rosen, a 2018 first-round pick shipped over from Arizona. The Harvard grad took the majority, if not all, of the first team snaps while Rosen was relegated to the second unit.
Diehards Line: New HC Brian Flores hasn't given a concrete timeline on when he'll name a starter, but on day one, it appeared the veteran took a lead over the sophomore. Rosen's day included an interception in the end zone and a fumble on a handoff. Still, he was positive after practice. Fitzpatrick, on the other hand, had a solid day and was praised by his younger teammates. "He's a leader for sure, and everybody looks up to him when he steps in the huddle," LT Laremy Tunsil said. Fitzpatrick had a number of touchdown passes and no turnovers reported. So while it's only been one day, it seems like Fitzpatrick is leading the charge for the starting quarterback position.
