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.

Behold:

Since it was practice and not a game it didn’t quite have the degree of difficulty of Patrick Mahomes’ no-look completion from December, but it’s pretty fun.

Fitzpatrick the clear favorite for starting job

Miami and the 36-year-old Fitzpatrick agreed to an incentive-heavy two-year contract in March, though the Dolphins traded for Josh Rosen during draft weekend.

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.

Multiple Miami reporters have said Fitzpatrick is the No. 1 quarterback and clear favorite for the starting job through the team’s spring camps.

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.
