Fitz Magic can occur in the preseason.
Quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, now with the Miami Dolphins, showed some trick-pass savvy on Thursday during the team’s mini-camp, completing a no-look sideline pass to DeVante Parker.

Fitzpatrick the clear favorite for starting job
Though he’s well-traveled (the Dolphins are his eighth team), Fitzpatrick is also vastly more experienced than Rosen, who as a rookie with Arizona last year dealt with two offensive coordinators and a leaky offensive line.
Chris Perkins of The Athletic wrote on Wednesday that there also seems to be a philosophical difference between Fitzpatrick and Rosen.
Rosen told media “the real competition starts in training camp,” but Fitzpatrick — and, more importantly, head coach Brian Flores — believe “everything counts.”
The reality may be that both men end up starting games for Miami this fall, but for now Fitzpatrick clearly has the edge.
