Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick is turning heads at Dolphins practices, currently as the teams starting signal caller.
DeVante Parker, the former 14th overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft, has high praisefor the journeyman.
“He helped me a lot with communications and signals and everything,” Parker said. “[Fitzpatrick’s] telling me what I’m doing and what I need to do to be in the right spot.”
Fitzpatrick impressed the entire league early last season with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, earning the nickname ‘FitzMagic.’ Fitzpatrick eventually lost the starting job to Jameis Winston.
In four seasons with the Dolphins, it has been a lackluster career for Parker, who has not had a 1,000 yard receiving season yet.
