Things to think about. Is he better than Tannehill? He will be cheaper, but he is not better than Tannehill. Maybe worst, actually, and injury prone himself.

Bridgewater: The Dolphins like him — they wanted to sign him as a backup in March before his cost grew prohibitive — but keep in mind that his 85.2 and 88.7 passer ratings in his two years as Minnesota’s starter were pretty pedestrian and well below Tannehill’s this season.
Now serving as Drew Brees’ backup in New Orleans, he doesn’t have that many more career touchdowns (28) than interceptions (22) and has thrown three passes (no completions) in the past three seasons, after returning midway through last season from his serious knee injury.
By comparison, Tannehill has 119 career touchdowns and 72 career picks. So a strong case could be made that Bridgewater isn’t an upgrade over Tannehill, though there’s still room for growth there.
None of the other definitive free agents — Ryan Fitzpatrick, Sam Bradford, Tyrod Taylor, Josh McCown — are longterm answers. So forget any of those unless we’re talking about Fitzpatrick as a stopgap if Miami uses a high pick on a quarterback.
