Armed with a penchant for improvisation, Tyler Thigpen openly admits he only knows how to play football one way: relying heavily on instinct.
If shares of Thigpen were sold on the market he might be declared a junk bond because there's a high level of risk associated with this self-declared gambler.
But the Miami Dolphins also realize Thigpen could significantly enhance the team's portfolio because he's the type of quarterback that could produce a big return if managed properly.
"When you've relied on your natural instinct for so long it's hard to shut it off, or tell it to be quiet," said Thigpen, whose unorthodox style allowed the Dolphins to make last year's season finale against Pittsburgh competitive.
"He's a player," said receiver Brian Hartline. "He gets out there and competes. It might not be textbook all the time, but the dude produces and makes plays. I think Tyler is a good player."
