    How do you know that he is far from being an NFL starter? Is Tannehill ready? You all said that he is only a rookie and he only had 19 games in college and that's why we shouldn't exepect too much from him. Anyway we're talking about Devlin as #2 and not the starter (for now). Do you think a veteran who was not good enough to be on any other team is ready to be our starter?

    As "we're" is plural, and you (which is singular) are the only person talking about Devlin taking the job away from Tannehill, I think "we" are talking about Devlin as the #2 on a permanent basis. This is coming from a huge fan of Devlin.

    A veteran free agent of course. Lets ask Minnesota how it feels to have a less than stellar backup. From what I have seen of Devlin he is still a product in development. What would it hurt to bring in a vet instead of finding out the hard way
