Garafolo added Tuesday that Bridgewater isn’t a lock for a roster spot, at least until he shows he’s healthy.
The Dolphins on Tuesday became the latest team to join the fray, exercising DeVante Parker ‘s fifth-year team option . Worth roughly $9.5 million, the move keeps Miami’s 25-year-old wideout under contract through 2019.
The Dolphins obviously see promise in Parker — the 14th overall pick from 2015 — despite the receiver failing to top 750 yards in any of his three pro seasons. If Parker fails to break out in 2018, Miami could bypass his fifth-year option, which is guaranteed for injury alone.
At 6-foot-3 and 212 pounds, Parker has shown on-field flashes. He opened strong last season, with 18 catches over his first three starts. From there, he never topped six grabs in a game and finished the campaign with just one score.
With the Dolphins in play to draft a quarterback, Miami’s offense has the potential to look entirely different. It makes sense to keep Parker under team control until they know for certain what he can become.
Reporting from team headquarters, NFL Network’s Omar Ruiz told Good Morning Football that Oklahoma’s Baker Mayfield has emerged as a dark horse candidate to be Cleveland’s top selection.

Citing a source involved in team discussions, NFL Network’s Steve Wyche echoed Ruiz’s report, insisting Mayfield’s name is absolutely on the Browns’ radar . The reigning Heisman winner does have support in the war room, Wyche added, particularly from personnel consultant Scot McCloughan, formerly the Redskins general manager.
Does Mayfield have a legitimate chance to go No. 1?
We still don’t know, Wyche emphasized on NFL Up to the Minute , but we cannot rule that out.
For what it’s worth, Mayfield comes with Joe Namath’s exuberant Andre Johnson Jersey stamp of approval .
