Dolphins coach Mike McDaniel says Miami will not make a play for Lamar Jackson.
McDaniel was asked whether the recent exercise of Tua Tagovailoa‘s fifth-year option takes the team out of the mix for Lamar, and responded, “Absolutely.”
He explained, “That’s why you pick up a fifth-year option. That’s why you pick the option up as soon as you know you’re going to. So to, to kind of as opposed to speaking, having an action speak, to really squash any of that unnecessary chatter.”
