Petty only lasted one day on the market before being picked up by the Dolphins.
He started seven games while a part of the Jets franchise, and has completed 53.1 percent of his passes over his professional career. He’s thrown four touchdowns and 10 interceptions in the NFL so far.
In college, Petty was insanely productive. He threw for 8,195 yards, 62 touchdowns, and just 10 interceptions over the course of his four-year career at Baylor. During the two years in which he was the Bears’ starting quarterback, Baylor won two Big 12 Championships.
The Jets drafted Petty in the fourth round of the 2015 NFL Draft. He was signed to a four-year contract, but released after just three seasons.
The Dolphins are still reportedly committed to Ryan Tannehill, but Tannehill has had struggles with injury as of late. The struggling Brock Osweilier is the next quarterback on the roster, so there’s a chance that Petty can get some playing time in Miami.
